Chateau de la Font du Loup 2020 Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rhone Valley
One rarely thinks of grace when they think Chateauneuf-du-Pape these days but there is no more fitting term for this regal wine than that, grace. Heavily perfumed with joyful Grenache aromatics folded into wild dried herbs an dried flowers. Light and almost bouncy on the palate with all that pretty fruit but also stones and cracked white pepper. Nearly lacy in texture with a breathtakingly elegant linger. If there is a prettier Chateauneuf-du-Pape on the planet, well I don't know what it is.
