    Gorgeous, with a textbook core of raspberry pâte de fruit flavors, enhanced by rooibos tea, licorice, sandalwood and warm fruitcake notes. The iron-tinged structure is well-embedded and the fruit echoes beautifully on the lengthy finish. Best from 2017 through 2025.

    One of the wines of the vintage is the Grenache-dominated 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Chaupin. Coming mostly from a cool terroir in the northeast corner of the appellation (just to the east of Beaucastel), this wine is vinified with a small portion of stems and aged mostly in foudre (one-third is in demi-muids). It has gorgeous Grenache flair in its black raspberry, garrigue, spring flower and licorice scented bouquet. This gives way to a medium to full-bodied, elegant, and layered 2013 that has more texture and sweet fruit than just about every other wine in the vintage. I'd drink it anytime over the coming 4-5 years, but it will have 10-15 years of overall longevity.
