"The dark ruby/purple-colored 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Chante Le Merle Vieilles Vignes has a terrific nose of black raspberries and sweet jammy cherries intermixed with licorice, earth, cedar, spice box, and some incense and soy. It is full, powerful, but at the same time fresh and elegant because of the vintage's tell-tale acidity and moderately high tannins. This classic should be cellared for 4-5 years and drunk over the following 15 years.

Fleshy and pliant in texture and quite sweet, with silky raspberry and blackberry flavors framed by gentle tannins. Finishes with a persistent flavor of tangy redcurrant."-International Wine Cellar 91-94
