Wine Description

This Chateauneuf-du-Pape from what was a difficult vintage expresses the ‘typicity’ of the terroir. Bottled 18 months after the harvest the fruit has been transformed into musky and animal scents. This is a wine to decant before drinking but there is no hurry, it can age for at least another 5 years.

  • International Wine Cellar
    (2000 Vintage) Full ruby-red. Liqueur-like aromas of black raspberry, black cherry and licorice. Lush, fat and full in the mouth, with superb concentration and richness. A seamless wine with great Chateauneuf du Pape character. Complicating notes of tar and chocolate. Finishes with dusty, broad tannins and great persistence. This can be enjoyed now with the right dishes but should age gracefully.
