    Winemaker's Notes:

    A blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre.

    Aged for 24 months in two to four years old barrels. The 2005 was an out-standing vintage and the most impressive appellation. Balance! Strength! Structure! Complexity! With the entire range of magical aromas from Chateauneuf. Brandied cherries, squashed strawberries, trufle, thyme, black olive tapenade. Bottled without any filtration.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape is superb, a blend of 50% old vine Mourvedre and the rest Grenache, aged in old used small barrels. The wine has a dense purple color and a full bodied style with plenty of tannin and sweet roasted meat smells intermixed with blackberry, licorice, incense, and forest floor. The wine is broad, dense, and in need of 2-3 years of bottle age. It should keep for 20 or more years.

    The Wine Advocate

    50% grenache and 50% mourvedre, all from La Crau. Inky ruby. Fresh raspberry and kirsch on the nose, with exotic incense, tapenade and lavender notes adding complexity. Deep, brooding bitter cherry and licorice flavors are brightened by juicy acidity. Finishes with impressive grip and thrust, but with a surprising lack of hardness for such a powerful wine with this much mourvedre.
