    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep black robe with hints of purple. Roasted notes and very ripe red fruits aromas. Concentrated, powerful and explosive in the mouth with hints of cherries, ripe black fruits and liquorice.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A sensational effort, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (100% Grenache from 70- to 80-year-old vines planted in pure sand) was aged in 2- to 3-year-old barrels. Incredible aromas of roasted Provencal herbs, licorice, truffles, kirsch and black raspberries jump from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-hued wine. Full-bodied and voluptuous as well as extremely elegant and poised, the sweetness of the tannin and the wine’s unctuosity and viscosity are all remarkable. This is a blockbuster, old vine Grenache to drink over the next 15+ years.

    The Wine Advocate

    A dark, nicely toasty style, with bittersweet cocoa and espresso bean notes followed by muscular blackberry, black currant paste and braised fig flavors. The long, fleshy finish lets the cocoa edge hang on, with a tarry echo. This oozes fruit, but has the spine to go the distance. Best from 2012 through 2024. 333 cases made.
