Tasting Notes For Clos Saint Jean Chateauneuf Du Pape 2020
**Wine Spectator’s #12 Wine of the Year**
Clos Saint Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2020 greets the senses with a deep, garnet hue, hinting at the wine's concentration and maturity. On the nose, intense aromas of ripe blackberries and red cherries dominate, accompanied by subtle nuances of lavender, dried herbs, and a touch of exotic spice. The first sip reveals a wine of great structure and elegance, where the richness of sun-kissed Grenache is complemented by the depth and complexity of Syrah and Mourvèdre.
Bold and full-bodied, this Châteauneuf-du-Pape unfolds on the palate with layers of dark fruit, including black plum and fig, seamlessly woven together with hints of black pepper, anise, and a touch of leather. The wine's firm tannins provide a robust backbone, promising age-worthiness, while a judicious use of oak contributes to a velvety texture and a lingering finish.
