Chateauneuf du Pape, Château Fortia, Cuvée du Baron 2015
Everything you expect from top Chateauneuf-du-Pape – stylish, bold, rich and elegant, with soft tannins and a long finish to boot.
Without getting too ‘winey’, look for notes of cherry and raspberry but also more savoury spices and liquorice. Like the white equivalent, this is a glass of wine you can savour as it opens up layer by layer.
This vintage wont be around forever so I’d grab a couple of bottles for a rainy day too. Ideally decant before enjoying.
