Tasting notes, The Wine Advocate, rating 86-92 points
The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape, which is 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah and the balance Mourvèdre and Cinsault. What looks to be a beautiful classic cuvée, it has real depth and richness as well as full body, lots of meatiness, beef jerky (snap into a Slim Jim!!), blackcurrants, black cherries, ripe tannin and a great finish. It will have 10-15 years of overall longevity.

Another rising star, the young Alexander Favier continues to release deep, rich and concentrated Châteauneuf du Papes that have beautiful purity of fruit as well as classic Southern Rhône characters. The 2015s across the board look to be outstanding wines.
