A rich, opulent, generous wine with big aromatic complexity : black cherries, blackberries, fig, cocoa powder, coffee, licorice, chinese five spice, olive jam. Round and sexy. Food Pairings: Braised venison with rosemary served with a patato puree, fillet mignon with a balsamic glaze served with sauted potatoes, pepper fillet steak served with shoe string French fries. The rich fruit and coco powder aromas means this wine marries well with dark chocolate or dark chocolate desserts.

Wine AdvocateBlended from the lieux-dits of La Crau and Rayas, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape La Muse tank sample carries a hint of fresh herbs upfront for freshness but also plush black cherry fruit, creamy/supple tannins and a long, licorice-tinged finish. It looks to be a stunner!
