A bit more concentrated and structured than the regular bottling, the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Baron also includes more dark chocolate notes, along with black cherries, plums and hints of leather and spice. Full-bodied and almost creamy on the palate, with a long, softly dusty finish, this is a ripe, sumptuous wine to enjoy over the next decade. ... More details

The 2018 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Du Baron (40% Grenache, 40% Syrah, and 20% Mourvèdre) is cut from the same cloth yet has a touch more acidity as well as structure. Notes of Bing cherries, roasted garrigue, new leather, licorice, and ground pepper all emerge from this more medium-bodied, fresh, focused 2018 that has building tannins and outstanding length. Give bottles 2-3 years and enjoy over the following decade.

Region: Rhone Valley

In southern France, one of the primary wine regions responsible for the production of a fine and varied range of wines is the Rhone Valley. Split into two large sub-regions, this expansive valley benefits from micro-climates which allow the wineries to grow a vast array of fine grape varietals. The northern region is the more limited one in regards to the amount of varietals grown, focusing predominantly on raising excellent quality Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier vines for their distinctive and elegant range of wines. The southern region, on the other hand, has a beautifully Mediterranean climate, and is home to dozens of grape varietals which are used to produce white, red and rosé wines, alongside some of the most famous and widely loved blended wines in the world.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
