Winemaker Notes

A dynamic, savory and stunningly pure wine that captures all the saturated richness of the 2009 vintage without the excess; it may be better than the estate's stunning 2007 and will certainly reward a hundredfold in a cool cellar.

Critical Acclaim

WS 92
Wine Spectator

This is alluring, with warm ganache and black tea notes leading the way for velvety-textured fig sauce, plum and crushed blackberry fruit. The long finish is filled with licorice and anise. Drink now through 2023. 3,000 cases made.

ST 92
International Wine Cellar

Deep ruby. Powerful aromas of black raspberry, licorice, garrigue and smoked meat. Dense and ripe, with good depth adding to the dark berry and licorice pastille flavors. Broad, chewy and ripe in style, reminding me a bit of a wine from 2007, showing good finishing cling and length.
90-92 points.

The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (from 80-100 year old vines) exhibits a dark ruby/plum color as well as a big, voluptuous mouthfeel revealing copious pepper, garrigue, black cherry, lavender and damp earth notes. It is a full-bodied, luscious, sexy example of Chateauneuf du Pape to enjoy over the next decade.

Vines that have seen close to a century of life in Châteauneuf sit north/west on Arnaud’s vineyard slopes.

Ancient too are the vines Arnaud sources for his "smaller" crus. Some of Arnaud's oldest Grenache vines grow in his vineyards just... View More
