Mounir Saouma's story in the Chateauneuf-du-Pape started with a state sale of a small plot in Pignan, one of the most famous vineyard areas of Chateauneuf-du-Pape.

When you start tasting you understand why some have compared his wines to the great Rayas wines of the 1980s or, perhaps as expected given Mounir's renown as owner and winemaker of Lucien Le Moine, to Burgundy. On the label is aptly explained: "Arioso is a style of opera somewhere between an aria and a recital. We chose this name for our wine because it is evocative of both the ethereal and profound".

Similar in style to the 2016, just slightly more elegant, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Arioso is the Chambolle-Musigny of the Rhône Valley with its huge perfume of spring flowers, pepper, exotic fruits, and spice.

Possessing remarkable elegance, full body, ultra-fine tannin, and a great, great texture, it's up with the top wines in the vintage and will keep for two decades.
