Tasting Notes:

A full-bodied, elegant and refined wine, tannic while remaining velvety smooth with gooseberry, toffee, cinnamon, cardamom and sichuan pepper, finishing very long on the palate.

" One of the vintage's strongest efforts is the 2021 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cornelia Constanza, a 100% Grenache all from the sandy soils near the estate that was brought up mostly in concrete, with 30% each in foudre and new barrels. Gorgeous wild strawberries, redcurrants, peppery herbs, sandalwood, and loamy earth define the aromatics, and its medium-bodied, has a supple, elegant mouthfeel, and a beautiful finish. It will shine for a solid 8-10 years." Jeb Dunnuck 94
