As to the 2014s, Jean-Paul made just a single cuvée, and his 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Trois Source is a beautiful wine in the vintage that has more richness and fruit than most. Offering plenty of minerality, lots of Acacia flowers, spice and assorted red and black fruits, it has medium to full-bodied richness, fine tannin and outstanding length. I’d happily drink bottles over the coming 7-8 years
Anticipated maturity: 2016-2024
Inky ruby. A complex, deeply perfumed bouquet displays scents of boysenberry, cola, peppery spices and candied flowers, and a smoky mineral note emerges with air. Stains the palate with vibrant red and blue fruit and lavender pastille flavors; juicy acidity and a snap of white pepper provide focus and lift. Impressively balanced and densely packed, finishing with excellent persistence and smooth tannins that are quickly absorbed by the plush fruit.
