Domaine des Sénéchaux, Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2013

Big, bold and fleshy, this is exactly what you expect from Châteauneuf-du-Pape. From one of the oldest domaines in the region, which is now in the hands of The Cazes family who also own Château Lynch Bages in Pauillac. While it is powerful, it is showing fresh red fruit characters with a fine acidity which gives a great lift and energy to the wine.
