International Wine CellarRating: 93(+?) - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 94, January/February 2001 Creamy but bright aromas of spice, honey, roasted nuts and exotic mandarin orange zest. Dense and thick but framed by racy acidity; creamy soft citrus flavors offer great appeal already, but this seemed to tighten up with aeration. Finishes very long and subtly complex. Drink this today, says Perrin, or put it away for eight years.
Vintage ChartRating for France-Rhône-Châteauneuf-du-Pape: 90 (slightly better than average year)<br/><br/>Drinkability: young, aging quickly, could be good now<br/>
