“The 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Crous Saint Martin Hommage A L'An 1879 (80% Grenache and 10% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre) is rock solid, with a sexy yet fresh style that's already a joy to drink. Sweet black raspberries, cherries, spring flowers, and spice all flow to a medium to full-bodied, seamless red that has polished tannins, terrific balance, and a great finish. It has the ripe, sexy style of the vintage, yet still holds onto a terrific sense of freshness and elegance. It's a complex beauty that will keep for 10-15 years." Rated 94 points by Jeb Dunnuck.
