Tasting Note:

Sheer nobility. Utterly effortless in structure. Classy, creamy dark hedgerow fruit roll across the palate with notes of limestone and spice adding interest. Stylish, deep and composed. A class act indeed. A 65% Grenache 35% Syrah blend, the Mourvedre being omitted this year, not quite fitting the profile or quality Pierre Fabre was looking for. The estate has always been envied for its holdings on the Plateau of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, considered one of the greatest terroir in the region. This is a selection from the best spots within the Plateau, amounting to an 850-case production. It is made in the same way as the other wines, gently extracted but with an extra 6 months in mainly used oak barrels – 18 months in total.
