Chateau Husson Chateauneuf du Pape Rouge 2016


(90-92) Points, Joe Czerwinski,, “More concentrated and tannic than the 2015, Husson’s 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape features tart raspberry and citrus notes. A blend of 60% Grenache, 37% Mourvèdre and 3% Syrah, all raised in a combination of foudres and concrete, it’s medium to full-bodied, with firm tannins on the finish.”

More Information

Château Husson is located on the eastern slope of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation, in the town of Courthézon. The estate is fortunate to have old vines with deep root systems that can draw cool moisture during periods of hot, dry weather. Grenache is the primary grape variety used in the red wines. Grenache contributes balance and structured, with heavenly aromas of liquorice and spices. Mourvèdre and Syrah contribute colour and acidity, and further aromatic notes of violet, small red fruit, leather and smoke.
