Blend: 56% Grenache, 22% Mourvedre, 22% Syrah

 

96 Points from Jeb Dunnuck

The 2017 Oublie is a blockbuster, ranking with the finest wines in the vintage. Based on 56% Grenache, 22% Mourvèdre, 22% Syrah, brought up in 50% neutral barrels, its vivid purple color is followed by a full-bodied, powerful, yet elegant red that has a great nose of cassis, blackberries, white flowers, leafy herbs, and hints of pepper. It packs some muscle yet stays flawlessly balanced. Drink it over the coming decade.

 

95 Points from Vinous

Saturated ruby. Deeply perfumed, spice-tinged aromas of black raspberry, floral oils, smoky minerals and vanilla; a mineral nuance builds in the glass. Juicy and densely packed but energetic as well, conveying a suave blend of power and finesse to the sweet red and blue fruit, violet pastille and spice cake flavors. Delivers a serious punch but comes off lithe, showing outstanding clarity and floral drive on an extremely long, gently tannic finish. 45% new puncheons.

 

Winemaker Notes

Continuing to honor the ne wines of Châteauneuf du Pape, the Oublié 2017 does not disappoint. It shows off a deep youthful ruby color beneath a purple rim. Initially, a plethora of spicy, red cherry, raspberry and red plum aromas envelope the senses and evolve into even brighter but rounded red cherry and plum avors on thepalate. Lively minerality and young playful tannins hint at the lineage to the noble wines of the southern Rhône.
