Chateau Mont Thabor Chateauneuf du Pape 2015
It’s a holly jolly Christmas, the best time of the year…
Well, it sure FEELS like Christmas in March when we get the rocking good Mont Thabor Chateauneuf-du-Pape --- but this is no ordinary one, no sir, it is the killer 2015!! 50% OFF retail, direct-imported by us with as much as the extraordinary father/daughter team would sell us!! A longtime Last Bottle fave --- 91 points to boot!!
We love the Mont Thabor wines. We even did a blog post about them a while back and are actually visiting with them in literally a few days during our April Rhone trip. The wines are SO GOOD! So- let us tell you about the lush but elegant 2015 --- deep and intense nose, on the feminine side, with round, dark blue fruits and that must-have sweet wild herb note --- then the anise and mint and spice kick in. Hey, don’t take our word for it, read the Wine Advocate 91-point review! "Plush and velvety, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape from Mont Thabor features oodles of baking spices and dark fruit. It may not make old bones, but it's a seductive wine for drinking over the next 10 years."
A baby now, it will only get better over the next few years....get enough to cellar!! Wow!! THE PRICE??!!!
Mont Thabor's Chateauneuf du Pape is not heavy or alcoholic, it glides across the palate and packs a lot of fruit and classic old-vine Grenache character --- kirsch, framboise, sweet herbs, earth, mineral, and tons of red flowery scents and sensations. This is long and complex and layered, on the elegant, polished side and changes with every sip

About The Producer
The name “Mont Tabor” comes from one of the most famous mountains in Galilee Israel. In 1881 owner Daniel Stehelin's great uncle, Fritz Stehelin, bought the estate, consisting of a beautiful old French farmhouse with an adjacent stable which he immediately converted into a proper winemaking cellar. Then in 1940 Luc Stehelin took over from Fritz, and succeeded in planting new vines in the Cotes du Rhone. Daniel took over in 1977, and today it still remains a family affair, with his daughter helping him on the side.
