Ratings and Tasting Notes:
AG=93. WA=92 With slightly more pronounced tannins than most vintages, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape should be set aside for a year or two and then consumed over the following decade. It offers fresh, vibrant blackberry and blueberry flavors, a full-bodied, velvety-textured palate, and a long, tannic finish tinged with orange zest.
JS=90 Some riper fruit here, with figs and raisins, as well as red plums. Dense, pastry-like feel to the ripe and juicy palate. Drink over the next five years.
