The 2015 'Renaissance' Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a simply stunning showing from Domaine de Cristia. This begins with seductive aromas of black raspberries and dark cherries which come together with fresh lavender, sweet spice and a dusty mineral character. On the palate this possesss a medium-plus body with a beautifully textured mouthfeel and remarkable poise, as gorgeous ripe juicy fruits expand on to the long, graceful finish. While this already absolutely outstanding, it will undoubtedly continue to evolve for many years to come. A sensational job from winemaker Baptiste Grangeon on this total beauty.
