Chateau du Mourre du Tendre Chateauneuf du Pape, 1988

Image result for mourre du tendreMourre du Tendre makes very traditional Chateauneufs, and this wine has done very well for itself after 30-odd years in the bottle. The color is still deep and dark with no signs of oxidation. Smells and flavors are also surprisingly youthful; black and red fruits, deep and concentrated. Ripe Grenache berries but not overly sweet. Not a great Chateauneuf du Pape but a very good one that has aged admirably.
