Château Maucoil Châteauneuf-du-Pape red 2020. NEW vintage.
60% Grenache, 15% Shiraz, 15% Mourvèdre, 10% Cinsault.
Guttural CNDP, muscular, pungently aromatic, with luscious fruit density. So boisterous in its youth that it’s quite hard to pin down the nose that coruscates wildly between lashings of fruit weaving in and out of a dense halo of herbal, earthy, and woody perfumes, natural and expressive. Its body floods the mouth, full in breadth and depth, luscious and deep like velvet, smooth but swarthy, wild around the edges, and firm in its finish. A very big red from France’s ultimate full-bodied capital. A beautiful estate up on the plateau-slopes of CNDP and well worth a visit if you’re ever there. A magic spot and an unforgettable wine. Averages a score of 4.2 out of 5 across all vintages, from 5614 individual reviews on wine review app Vivino.
