"Needing more patience, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Papet (75% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre and the balance Syrah aged in foudre) comes from the estate’s oldest vines planted in such famous sites as Mont Olivet and Bois Dauphin. Usually about 1,000 cases are produced and the 2009, which tops the scales at 15.5% alcohol, is brilliant. A gorgeously aromatic bouquet of dark fruits, kirsch, underbrush, raspberries, licorice, spice box and pepper soars from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-tinged wine. Opulent and voluptuously textured with moderate tannins, and a broad, fleshy mouthfeel, it has 15 years of evolution ahead of it. Nevertheless, it is very accessible and upfront now."

"Tight and rather backward for the vintage, with a strong chalk and iron profile up front that holds the core of dark fig, macerated black currant and roasted woodspice at bay for now. Extra bay, black tea and tobacco notes run through the finish. A gorgeous throwback style that needs time to round into form. Best from 2015 through 2030."

80% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre + 5% Syrah. This is a vineyard and barrel selection of the best old vine parcels of the domaine. This is always among the best few Châteauneuf of the vintage.
