"A hugely impressive effort, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape David et Goliath favors the giant. Christmas spices and dark fruit both lead the way and linger on the finish. The real story is the wine's richness on the palate, where it packs a velvety wallop of soft, plush tannins. It's 95% Grenache from Les Saumades, matured in demi-muids." (WA)

"Moving to the 2015s, there were solid, although not ground-breaking wines. Notes of peppery herbs, earth and assorted dark fruits emerge from the 2015 Ch√Ęteauneuf-du-Pape David Et Goliath, and it's balanced, medium to full-bodied, moderately tannic and nicely balanced. It shows the elegant style of the vintage nicely, has solid purity and a good finish." (JD)
