- France, Southern Rhône: The Elegant and Lively 2015s and Heavenly 2016s
The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Cornelia Constanza checks in as 100% Grenache from a tiny parcel of 100-year-old vines planted in the famed la Crau lieu-dit. It offers lots of kirsch liqueur, mulled-strawberries, garrigue and floral nuances in a medium to full-bodied, elegant, graceful style. It's already delicious and should keep through 2025. This cuvée also saw a small amount of stems and was partially vinified in new tulip shaped concrete tanks.
