    Item no. 108184

    Winemaker's Notes:

    A single vineyard wine, directly across the appellation boundary of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Intense, brilliant garnet-red color. The aromas of woods and ripe red berries are typical of the terroir. The tannic structure is elegant and smooth. The finish is dominated by slight touches of spices and truffles. A complete wine, rich and fine.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Interestingly, it did not outclass its counterpart in the much inferior vintage of 2008, the 2008 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Les Champauvins. The latter wine was made from the same blend, has an identical price, and is of essentially equal quality. However, the 2008 is far more evolved than the twelve months difference in age would suggest. It also moves more toward the earthy, autumnal, vegetative character, but there is no shortage of sweet black cherry fruit, pepper, licorice, and spice box characteristics in this wine.
