Les Safres (0.75 L)
Sourced from the lieu-dit of Les Bédines, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Safres is almost 100% Grenache. It has the variety’s silky tannins but plenty of them, so hold onto your bottles for a few years until the wine comes into balance. Right now, it’s clearly got plenty of concentrated red fruit and peppery spice but comes across tight and crisp.
