Rotem & Mounir Saouma Châteauneuf-du-Pape Omnia 2015 (96 VM)

“Deep brilliant crimson. An expansively perfumed, expressive bouquet evokes ripe cherry and raspberry, incense, lavender and Moroccan spices, and a smoky mineral flourish adds urgency and lift. Shows impressive depth as well as energy in the mouth, offering alluringly sweet red fruit liqueur, floral pastille, succulent herb and spicecake flavors supported by a spine of juicy acidity. In a suave, distinctly graceful style for its heft, showing outstanding delineation and a sexy floral nuance on the strikingly long, penetrating finish, which features deftly interwoven tannins and resonating mineral and red fruit qualities.”

    Châteauneuf-du-Pape

    Omnia, Latin for “all,” is a wine that attempts to encompass the full diversity of the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation, both in its terroir and vinification. Fruit comes from vineyards in all 5 of the Chateauneuf communes (Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Courthezon, Sorgues, Bedarrides and Orange) and aged in foudre, cement and 500 liter barrels.

    Burgundy meets the Rhone.  An utter respect for tradition, and in some ways a total break.  We've watched as Mounir and Rotem Saouma, of Burgundy producer Lucien Le Moine, slowly developed their estate and wines in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, and the results today are too extraordinary and distinct to ignore.
