2017 Chateauneuf du Pape, Croix de Bois, Chapoutier (6 x Bottle)

France Rhone South Rhone

Another 100% Grenache CdP, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Croix de Bois hints at garrigue on the nose, then eases into a dense, compact ball of dark fruit. Concentrated and tannic, this looks as if it will need five years or more to slowly unfurl its dense layers of dark berries, black olives, licorice and tea.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Chapoutier’s 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Croix de Bois is a dense, concentrated powerhouse. Plummy and ripe, it’s also rich and tannic, with less charm than the Barbe Rac but more muscle, then a long, licorice-tinged finish.
