La Ferme Du Mont Chateauneuf du Pape Capelan 2012

Product description

Chateauneuf du Pape Cotes Capelan is 90% Grenache and 10% Mourvedre that spent 18 months in 40% oak barrels. Medium to full-bodied, with superb concentration and richness, it offers up notions of sweet raspberry ganache, spice-box, licorice and hints of graphite on both the nose and palate. Beautifully textured, yet with notable freshness and purity, it will drink well for 12-15 years.

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate    Even better (than the Vendange), the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Cotes Capelan is almost all Grenache (10% Mourvedre) that spent 18 months in 60% concrete tank and 40% small barrels. It dishes out awesome notes of black raspberry, cassis, toasted spice, licorice and roasted meats. Dense, full-bodied, ripe and layered, with fabulous purity of fruit, this knockout 2012 can be consumed anytime over the coming 10-15 years.
