    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2006 Cuvée Speciale has aromas that are fresh and delicate, with a restrained power. This cuvée in the traditional style has, once again, showcased a wine that stands apart from all the standards, apart from the most fashionable, the most modern, styles of the appellation. Definitely a wine that stands apart for the delight of wine lovers.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Rich, with a sappy intensity to the cassis and red plum fruit that pumps through, pushed by red licorice, raspberry ganache and incense notes. The long, detailed finish lets additional mocha and roasted vanilla hints chime in. Grenache. Drink now through 2024. 1,450 cases made.

    Wine Spectator

    The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Speciale, which includes 100% stems from a vineyard planted in pure sand in the Courthezon sector of Chateauneuf du Pape, has the classic kirsch liqueur notes with licorice, pine forest notes, and plenty of pepper. It is a noble, full-bodied style of Chateauneuf du Pape with superb purity and length. 92-94 points.

    The Wine Advocate

    Ruby-red. Seductive aromas of raspberry, Asian spices, smoky minerals and potpourri. Lively red fruit flavors show a silky texture and good mineral tang. A vivacious, seamless wine that's delicious right now. 91 points
