La Bastide Saint Dominique Chateauneuf-Du-Pape Rouge 2018
Intense ruby wine with purple tints. Very intense nose of jammy red fruits, kirsch liqueur and black berries. After aeration, more complexity with notes of laurel, pepper, cardamom and resiny pine forest. An opulent attack in a crunchy style, with full-bodied and elegant tannin. Pleasant freshness at the finish with notes of spices.
The 2018 is very much for drinking sooner rather than later, we also have the 2017 which would be a better buy if you wanted to drink it now. The 2018 is very powerful and will become much better for drinking over the next 3-4 years, definitely a wine for keeping!
