Domaine de la Biscarelle is located in the prestigious area of Les Grès, within the commune of Orange. The vineyards consists of 22 hectares of vines, 5 of which are appellation Châteauneuf du Pape, in the lieux-dits of Palestor and Cabrières. Their vines range in age from 30 to 100 years old, with several parcels that were planted in 1904. This young estate captures this outstanding 2016 vintage beautifully. Aromas of kirsch, blackberry compote, figs, juniper, iron and garrigue leap from the glass. Texture is concentrated, lush and silky smooth with a vibrant acidity that stretches towards a sweet & savory mild touch of tannins. The finish is long and earthy with departing notes of forest floor, fennel seeds and cinder. Full bodied, but offers a graceful dance.
