Wine Description

(From 2011 Vintage) Principalement argiles et mélange argilo-calcaire à tendance ferrique. Vendanges manuelles, et tris rigoureux du seau, au tracteur et à la benne. Pressurage, levurage, contrôle de la température durant la semaine de fermentation, débourbage, stockage de 4 mois en cuve inox. Pas de fermentation malo-lactique. Mise en bouteille à la propriété sous filtration stérile

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2006 Vintage) Pale yellow. Spicy melon and citrus pith aromas are brightened by stony minerality and white flowers. Vibrant and sharply focused, with racy lemon and white peach flavors and excellent mineral bite on the back.

    WA98 Drink 2016-2051 The bottled 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee is as compelling as I thought it would be after tasting it last year. A blend of 85% Grenache with the rest Syrah, Mourvedre and small dollops of the other authorized varietals, this wine tends to come from the estate’s holdings in the eastern sector of Chateauneuf du Pape. The opaque purple-colored 2009 exhibits magnificent, rich berry fruit intertwined with cedar, Christmas fruitcake, licorice, charcuterie, roasted meats, smoked duck, kirsch, blackberries and god knows what else. It is an amazingly complex, rich, full-throttle wine that reminds me somewhat of what the 1990 tasted like in 1994/1995. It is a magnificent Chateauneuf du Pape. If you are looking for the garrigue component, it’s also there.
