Domaine du Grand Tinel Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee 'Alexis Establet' 2019
96 Points Wine Enthusiast
Aromas of blackberry compote and cherry-vanilla bonbons introduce this deeply concentrated Grenache. In contrast to the producer's unoaked Heres, this intensely berried bottling showcases old-vine Grenache matured 18 months in new and old oak casks, lending roundness and heft to the palate along with subtle accents of ash and singed anise. Framed by fine-grained but penetrating tannins, this powerful wine should drink well for decades to come.
