No longer are we looking skeptically at a glass of Châteauneuf du Pape, wondering if balance will be found. Today, the village and its producers have fully embraced the surrounding terroir and refocused their efforts to achieve purity and balance. These changes have come at the perfect time. after a string of good, yet far from great vintages, the region was gifted two wonderful years in a row, the 2015 and 2016 vintages. different in their expressions, yet both equally superior to much of what has come before, they represent an amazing opportunity for lovers of Grenache and the Southern Rhone to stock their cellars with some of the best wines from the region in over a decade.
