Tasted from multiple samples (as well as a final blend), the 2022 Châteauneuf Du Pape is going to be a beauty. All of the samples had a Grand Cru Red Burgundy-like style in their mouthfeel and structure. With more red fruits as well as lots of rose, violet, and sappy flower notes, this peppery, medium-bodied, focused, elegant Châteauneuf has tons of tannins, a focused, precise mouthfeel, and a gorgeous finish. It's a beautiful wine that's going to need 4-5 years of bottle age.
