Clos des Brusquières Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2019

$50

Though tight and grippy, this has a live wire of racy, iron-edged minerality spreading out from the core, providing a matrix for the range of plum reduction, cherry paste, red licorice, sweet bay leaf, lavender, cassis bush and juniper notes to build off of. A wild brambly feel drives the finish. This is distinctive and should provide plenty of intrigue as it ages. Best from 2024 through 2036. 8,500 cases made, 600 cases imported.
