Oh ho ho. The Force is strong with this one.

But, first let us remind you that the ‘16s...oh, the heavenly ‘16s...are just EPIC. Jeb Dunnuck recently wrote of ‘16 Southern Rhone: “The 2016s are on another level...The wines are beautifully concentrated and structured – on par with 2010 – yet have a more open, sexy, voluptuous style...This is truly an extraordinary vintage.”
This is the vintage to buy, and buy big. JACUMIN! 92 POINTS! Wicked price, of course, and the wine is extraordinary. The fantastic kirsch and raspberry liqueur coats your mouth, and is as pure and mouth-watering as your dreams. There is a lightsaber-like freshness, with spices and sweet herbs and a rich, silky texture. So good. AHHH! Get me another glass!
…AHH. Thanks. So --- there you have it, another brain-shattering deal on ‘16 Chateauneuf-du-Pape from a 4th generation family of winemakers -- this is truly a family operation -- the kind we like!! We brought in as much as we could, but since every serious wine geek on earth is snapping these up, best move quick…!
