The 2016 Ogier Chateauneuf-du-Pape Reine Jeanne carries a nose of beautiful complexity combining licorice, prune, raisin, mocha, cocoa, spices and leather on a background of red fruit. A few notes of undergrowth and smoke emphasize the breeding. The palate is structured and powerful but keeps the freshness typical of wines vinified in whole cluster. It is therefore complexity, finesse, structure and an incredible length in the mouth that will accompany your meals.

Intensely ripe black-cherry and plum flavors are edged by hints of earth and balsamic in this unctuous Grenache-dominant blend. It’s a luscious, rounded wine with plush acidity and ripe tannins that invite youthful consumption. Enjoy through 2026.
