    Winemaker's Notes:

    Superb Chateauneuf, even better than the sought after 1999 vintage! This wine is a fine, deep, dark-red color in the glass. On the nose it is spicy, with soft, ripe fruit aromas. On the palate there are is round tannins, complexity and power. A rich, full-bodied, smooth wine, with touches of ripe plums, stone fruit and soft fruit. This is a rich wine, with all in harmony and balance.

    Cellaring: Can be laid down for approximately 15 years. Suggestions for serving: Red meat, game birds and cheese

    A blend of 50% Old Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah and others from at least approximately 45 year-old vines.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Even better than the 1999, is the 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape. It reveals a deeper ruby/purple color along with sumptuous scents of creme de cassis, kirsch liqueur, licorice, and Provencal herbs. Boasting abundant glycerin, fuller body, additional black fruit characteristics, low acidity, ripe tannin, and a longer finish, it should be silky and accessible upon release. Anticipated maturity: now-2015.

    The Wine Advocate

    Red-ruby, a bit less saturated than the Gigondas. Highly nuanced, liqueur-like nose combines roasted red and blue fruits, spices and coffee. Rich, fat and seamless, with near-exotic ripeness. With even more buffering extract, this seems less alcoholic than the Gigondas, despite being a half-degree higher, at 14.9%. Horizontal tannins really spread out over the palate. Philippe Guigal compared this wine in style to the house's 1990.
