2019 Domaine Jean Royer Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Les Sables de la Crau

Bright red color with slight translucence at the edges. Bright cherry aromas. Plush on the palate with a bit of an edge. Cherry, blueberry, bright and fruit forward but not cloying. Fine tannins, great acidity and balance. Finishes long and gentle with dark fruits. Picks up mint and spice notes with air. Lovely and drinking well young. Could add complexity with some aging. 16.%% ABV but not hot. Drink next 8 to 10 years. "A-"
