    Winemaker's Notes:

    A special red cuvée Alexis Establet (named from an ancestor from the 19th century) is made since 1993 from 85-year-old Grenache (90%) and 10% other varieties. This wine is matured for 12-18 months in old and new barrels. The producer recommend to open the bottle 3 hours before drinking.

    "Kirsch liqueur, gorgeous notes of tapenade, spice box, earth, and cedar jump from the glass of the dark ruby/plum-colored 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Alexis Establet. This is a big, round, full-bodied wine which again seems surprisingly silky and plush for a wine from this vintage. It should drink well for 10-12+ years if not longer."
    -Wine Advocate 90-93

    "Ruby-red. Exotic, liqueur-like red and dark berry aromas show a balsamic accent. Deep, rich and sweet, with a powerful raspberry flavor and a late mineral note. Fresher on the finish than on the nose, with tangy acidity brightening the fruit. Offers outstanding length."
    -International Wine Cellar 91-94
