L'Abbe Dine Chateauneuf du Pape 2016
Hi! Are you performing a complex surgery right now? No? Then please, PLEASE do whatever is necessary (pull over your car, SUV, moped, whatever) to snag the 92-POINT 2016 (greatest vintage in Chateauneuf in recent history…) L’Abbe Dine! A one woman show (well, Mom helps) along with the consulting genius of Philippe Cambie, Nathalie Raynaud is a up-and-coming rockstar…! THE PRICE! Madness! For 2016?? C’mon!!
It’s honestly hard to convey the lush aromatics here. Not a heavy wine at all, but it FLOWS and CRUISES with strawberry scents, raspberry liqueur, anise, spearmint, wild Mediterranean spices, and that rich, long, complex and warm feel that is so wonderfully abundant in the ‘16s. Beautiful balance, too, Nathalie is never heavy-handed..! SO GOOD.
It’s NUTS to find Chateauneuf from '16 priced like this ----it just hit our warehouse and we are all already throwing cases into our cars. Gotta go! While it lasts…!
