"The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape is a blend of 70% Grenache and the rest equal parts Syrah and Mourvedre, aged in foudres. This wine is one of the darkest of the vintage for Maret, and a classic example of Provencal viticulture. Ground pepper, kirsch liqueur, garrigue, spice box and loamy soil notes jump from the glass of this dense, rich, supple, concentrated Chateauneuf du Pape. It possesses loads of fruit, a lushness that is enormously charming, and an up-front precociousness that suggests drinking over the next 7-10 years."

"Deliciously ripe, with succulent boysenberry and blackberry fruit lined with anise, fruitcake and linzer torte notes. The long finish lets a licorice edge play out, while staying energetic and vivid. Drink now through 2025."

"Deep concentrated nose of brooding plum and red fruits. Light dried herb and dried red rose. Subtle spice. Great purity. Sweet juicy berry fruits fill the mouth, plus plum and spice. Very concentrated and dense but not too dry; well balanced. Lasting minerality to the finish. Very long and rich." - Importer's Note
