In the opinion of the greatest tasters such as Robert Parker or the Wine Spectator team, the year 2016 was a very great vintage for the wines of Châteauneuf du Pape, especially for the red wines which have an exceptional ageing capacity. The white Chateauneuf du Pape 2016 are also excellent but rarer and with a lesser ageing capacity. Consult the prices of Chateauneuf du Pape 2016
In 2016, the domains did not raise their prices. The prices of the Chateauneuf du Pape 2016 vintage are therefore in a range between 30€ and 150€ for the most prestigious bottles. The average price is thus around 60/80€ as the Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe, Chante le Merle de Bosquet des Papes or Clos des Papes which remain, in 2016, solid references of the appellation. We cannot say that the Chateauneuf du Pape 2016 is "not expensive" but considering the quality of the vintage and its ageing capacity, the price is quite reasonable.
