    Winemaker's Notes:

    This lovely, perfumed Châteauneuf du Pape is loaded with sweet, lush black raspberry and black cherry fruit. Its fine, soft tannins give it a supple texture, elegant balance and a long, sweet finish. The 2001 is denser, richer and more intense than the 2000, and will improve with some bottle age. 95% Grenache, 5% Syrah. 100% La Crau vineyard.

    "The Chateauneuf du Pape Rubis is a blend of 95% Grenache and 5% Syrah aged in equal parts tank and old wood barrels. All of this cuvee comes from the famed La Crau sector. … The dense ruby/purple-colored 2001 appears to be a worthy rival. Exhibiting more garrigue, lavender, and ground pepper notes in its black cherry, cassis, and plum-scented bouquet, it is a full-bodied example with terrific purity, a multidimensional palate feel, and a long, lusty, decadent finish. It will have 15+ years of aging potential."
