Chateauneuf du Pape is world-renowned, but finding the great stuff is difficult. Les Safres is a very nice bottle indeed. This is made from 60 year old vines. Spicy, thyme, blackcurrant, little bits of cured meat all come through on the palate. It’s rich and delicious. We drank this after a couple of Burgundies, and would have killed a pinot if we’d drank it the other way round. Wonderful red.
