Vignobles Mayard Cuvée “Clos du Calvaire” Châteauneuf du Pape Rouge 2014
Mainly Grenache with some Syrah and Cinsault. Lighter style of CdP, and none the worse for it. Fresh, red fruits, smattering of dried herb perfume, light grainy tannin, juiciness and some finesse here – not over-done – and good to drink. Should age well, and surely. Some typical peanut flavours in the aftertaste too. Thoroughly charming.
