Masquin Montplaisir Rouge 2015 (#27-25)

This 2010 Chateauneuf-du-Pape “Montplaisir” is a rich and full wine with great upside as well as aging ability.  It is a blend of grapes from the famed sector known as La Crau.  It boasts a dense ruby/purple/plum color along with chewy kirsch, garrigue, pepper and lavender characteristics, medium to full body, excellent power and concentration and light to moderate tannins that should resolve in 1-3 years. This wine will drink nicely for 10-12 years.

Grapes: 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 20% Mourvèdre 

Region: Rhone Valley Vineyard:  Domaine Julien Masquin
