Magnum Domaine Henri Bonneau Les Rouliers
"Henri Bonneau, who died in 2016, was the 12th generation in his family to make wine and one of the most respected producers of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. His very high quality wines had a unique personality. The 6-hectare vineyard is planted primarily to Grenache (85%) and supplemented by small amounts of Mourvèdre, Counoise and Vaccarese. Like the rest of the domain's wines, Les Rouliers has benefited from a long élevage in barrique barrels. The wine delivers aromas of spice (pepper, sweet spices), fruit (plum), musk and scrubland. The palate reveals a great balance between roundness and freshness. Its length is impressive."
