    Winemaker's Notes:

    Dark intense violet coulouring denoting a rich and generous body. Complex bouquet of roasted coffee, liquorice, cherry and hints of leather. Powerful straightforward taste in the mouth with dark fruit (blackcurrant), spicy (black pepper) and zan aromas.

    Serve with rabbit cooked with prunes or duck stew with truffles.

    60% Grenache, 40% Mourvedre

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is really packed, but amazingly suave and polished, as the huge core of braised fig, melted licorice, cassis and ganache is seamlessly put together and backed by perfectly embedded grip. The finish is hefty, but a mouthwatering note of singed iron keeps it driven. Best from 2012 through 2024. 500 cases made.

    Opaque ruby. Cherry compote, blackberry preserves and sexy, spicy oak on the highly aromatic nose. Sweet, supple, and high-toned, with explosive dark fruit and spice flavors that show impressive nuance, surprising firmness and superb intensity. Displays real power but retains a light touch. Finishes with lingering sweetness and a suave floral quality.
    Range: 91-93

    The more limited production 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Renaissance is fashioned from 60% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah, with the Grenache aged in old small oak and the Mourvedre and Syrah brought up in new oak. Tighter, more tannic and backward (especially for a 2009), it reveals plenty of spicy notes intermixed with hints of roast beef, bouquet garni, black currants, blackberries and smoky oak. Atypically backward, brooding, dense, broad, rich and tightly knit, it needs 2-3 years of bottle age and should drink well over the subsequent 15+ years.
    Range: 90+
