Critical Acclaim

RP 94
The Wine Advocate

The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Speciale, which includes 100% stems from a vineyard planted in pure sand in the Courthezon sector of Chateauneuf du Pape, has the classic kirsch liqueur notes with licorice, pine forest notes, and plenty of pepper. It is a noble, full-bodied style of Chateauneuf du Pape with superb purity and length. 92-94 points.
