Dom Jean Royer Chateauneuf Du Pape Sables De La Crau 2015 Product #32232 (In Stock)
Dom Jean Royer Chateauneuf Du Pape Sables De La Crau 2015 Dom Jean Royer Chateauneuf Du Pape Sables De La Crau 2015

From one of Chateauneuf’s greatest vineyards, La Crau (think Vieux Telegraphe) and a plot abutting Rayas.  All Grenache that showcases how sandy soils helps that heady varietal gain grace, focus, and precision.  In 2015 this is especially pretty, with layers of sweet Grenache fruit, crushed flowers, and spice.  Unusually open and ready to drink, this year’s Sables de la Crau will still improve substantially over the next 2-3 years and sing through 2030 easily.

"Vivid ruby-red. Intense, sharply focused red fruit liqueur, spicecake and floral scents are complicated by suggestions of smoky minerals and Asian spices. Sappy, penetrating and appealingly sweet, offering silky raspberry and lavender pastille flavors that put on weight and spread out steadily with air. Closes smooth, sweet and impressively long, displaying suave, fine-grained tannins and resonating florality."  Vinous (Raynolds) 92-94 points

"Floral and finesse-driven, the 2015 Ch√Ęteauneuf du Pape Les Sables de La Crau is 100% Grenache from the sandy parts of the la Crau lieu-dit. It too is full-bodied, silky and polished, with terrific notes of strawberries, licorice, cherry jam and mint."Wine Advocate 91-93 points
