Lot #506. Château de la Font du Loup Châteauneuf-du-Pape Le Puy Rolland Vielles Vignes 2019

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 96 JD.
"The smaller production 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Puy Rolland is all Grenache from sandy soils raised in foudre. It's slightly lighter hued compared to the other cuvées and offers a classic perfume of wild strawberries, iodine, violets, and Provençal spice. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, this is Grenache at its most feminine and elegant, with light tannins, a seamless, elegant texture, and outstanding length. It's going to benefit from just 2-3 years of bottle age but should evolve for 15 years on its balance, harmony, and purity. I continue to love these wines from the Bachas family, which come from a cool, sandy terroir on the northern slopes of the La Crau plateau. As I’ve written in the past, lovers of silky, elegant, and seamless Châteauneufs need to get on this estate’s bandwagon." Jeb Dunnuck, JebDunnuck.com, Nov 2021
