This elegant blend of Grenache and Syrah pairs beautifully with roast partridge - fricassee of guinea fowl with raspberry vinegar.
Lush and mouthfilling, with a lightly chewy edge framing the dark plum, fig and blackberry fruit. Hoisin sauce and smoldering tobacco notes fill out the full-bodied finish, which cuts a deep trough. Best from 2012 through 2023. 3,000 cases made.
The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape is a blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre from 50- to 100-year-old vines, and is aged in a combination of cement tanks (for the Grenache) and small oak barrels (for the Syrah and Mourvedre). The wine possesses a forward, seductive bouquet of kirsch, black currants, licorice, incense, lead pencil shavings and garrigue. This full-bodied, opulent, lush, stylish Chateauneuf du Pape should drink beautifully for 10-12 years.
