Product DescriptionWine Advocate Review
Moving to the Chateauneufs, the inky-colored 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape (80% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre) has a perfumed, floral core to go with plenty of berry fruits, graphite and mint. Medium to full-bodied, with a polished, elegant feel, it has good mid-palate depth and outstanding length on the finish. While it's already approachable now, I suspect it will evolve gracefully for a decade.
Wine maker Coralie Goumarre is the first woman in 9 generations to take the reins of the family estate. Her modern approach has brought new energy to the Domaine. She symbolizes a balance between knowledge and creative freedom, wine's fullness and lightness of the poetry, constancy and defiance. Elegance and femininity clearly indicate Coralie's personal style.
