    Winemaker's Notes:

    A dynamic, savory and stunningly pure wine that captures all the saturated richness of the 2009 vintage without the excess; it may be better than the estate's stunning 2007 and will certainly reward a hundredfold in a cool cellar. Precise, peppery aromas and the complexity of Moroccan spices show on the expressive nose; the mouth delivers cherries, licorice and colorful peppercorns yet retains a purity and balance that seems almost magical considering its flavorful concentration. The estate's stony terroir (the classic Châteauneuf "galets roules") are present in the nose and finish, a mineral edge that keeps every sip lively and well-defined. A heady blend of 70% Grenache, 8% Mourvèdre, 8% Syrah, 8% Cinsault and 6% Counoise, aged completely in the family's older foudre.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is alluring, with warm ganache and black tea notes leading the way for velvety-textured fig sauce, plum and crushed blackberry fruit. The long finish is filled with licorice and anise. Drink now through 2023. 3,000 cases made.

    The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (from 80-100 year old vines) exhibits a dark ruby/plum color as well as a big, voluptuous mouthfeel revealing copious pepper, garrigue, black cherry, lavender and damp earth notes. It is a full-bodied, luscious, sexy example of Chateauneuf du Pape to enjoy over the next decade.

    The Wine Advocate

    Deep ruby. Powerful aromas of black raspberry, licorice, garrigue and smoked meat. Dense and ripe, with good depth adding to the dark berry and licorice pastille flavors. Broad, chewy and ripe in style, reminding me a bit of a wine from 2007, showing good finishing cling and length.
    90-92 points.

    This was smooth and delicious. Way too expensive though.
