Wine Critics Notes:

Wine Advocate - Score: 91+ (2018 Sep.)

Unlike the 2015, which showed great right out of the gate, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Feminessance is overly marked by new wood. A 50-50 blend of Grenache and Syrah, aged 50% in new oak barriques, half in older oak, it offers toast, cedar and even menthol notes, with undercurrents of mocha and cola. It's full-bodied, creamy textured and plush on the long finish, so perhaps it will improve over the next decade.
