Why do we love this wine?

Who cares what the critics say, when Head Mofo Buyer, John, a fairly unflappable sort, says of this wine: “hands down one of the best wines I’ve bought - simply stunning.” And then he put it on the table. As Richard Hemming (of jancisrobinson.com) says, it’s absolutely drinkable early. Plush and silky, but dark and there’s something a little devious about it, like a very naughty, good-looking child. You know the one, who’d be skipping school and charming the teachers and the parents into getting away with it, even though they knew full well what was going on. But it’s equally complex, meaty and brooding. Years will unfold the layers and wisdom that sets this wine on its comfortable pedestal.

And it’s another feather in the cap for the company, if I do say so myself. Which I just did. Châteauneuf-du-Pape of this quality, at this price. Welcome to Vinomofo, this is how we roll, making your aspirational wines affordable and risk-free. “Balanced and pure”... Jeb might have been talking about us. Nice one, John.
