Domaine Bosquet des Papes Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Tradition 2016
A nice red purple color with shiny highlights. On the nose, this Chateauneuf-du-Pape spreads aromas of little red berries. It has a sweeping silky smooth mouth.
It will ideally be served with game, such as jugged hare or jugged boar.

Wine EnthusiastA terrific example of this bottling, the 2016 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Tradition is a blend of 75% Grenache, 12% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah and tiny amounts of Cinsault, Counoise and Vaccarèse. About 40% was destemmed in this textbook vintage, the fruit coming from 40 different parcels around the appellation. Floral and raspberry notes emerge on the nose, while the palate is full-bodied but silky textured, ending on subtle shadings of Provence herbs and licorice. It's a relative bargain that's easy to drink now, but it should easily go a decade or more in a cool cellar.
VinousBright ruby-red. High-pitched, spice-accented red fruit aromas are complicated by floral and herb nuances that build with air. Sweet, penetrating raspberry and cherry flavors show very good depth and energy, while licorice pastille and white pepper qualities develop slowly. Rich yet lively in style, finishing with very good focus and gentle tannins that frame the appealingly sweet fruit. This wine is an excellent example of a "basic" Chateauneuf.
Wine SpectatorJuicy and layered, with raspberry, plum and blackberry pâte de fruit flavors, all carried by polished and persistent grip through a licorice- and spice-laden finish. Focused and fresh. Best from 2019 through 2030.
