Domaine Lafond Roc-Epine Châteauneuf du Pape 2017
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
|Brand||Domaine Lafond Roc-Epine|
The 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Roc-Epine is a sappy, juicy, vibrant effort that has a terrific floral character in its red and black fruits, ground pepper, and sappy garrigue-like aromas and flavors. With medium to full body, polished tannins, no hard edges, and flawless balance, it's a beautiful 2017 that makes the most of the vintage. It's well worth seeking out. The blend is 80% Grenache and 10% each of Mourvèdre and Syrah, brought up in 10% new oak.
