Wine Critics Notes:

Wine Advocate - Score: 94 (2018 Sep.)

The 2016 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Lion is a ripe, powerful wine, a blend of 75% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre aged in old barriques and concrete. Hints of violets and roses accent black cherry fruit in this full-bodied, concentrated offering. Creamy textured on the mid-palate, it eases into a long, intense finish loaded with licorice and dried spices.
