This Chateauneuf was pure pleasure in a glass. It offered up smoky black cherry fruit with a black pepper component. The truly juicy acidity in this wine blends wonderfully with the medium length finish. This is the first time I have tried a wine from this estate. It will not be the last. The alc. of 14.5% seemed a little low, but the wine was not hot at all. Imported by Robert Kacher. 92+ pts.
