Winemaker's Notes

"The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape has a dense ruby/purple color and a sweet nose of black cherries, creme de cassis, plums, allspice, and smoky, gamey notes with a hint of damp earth. The wine is ripe, full-bodied, powerful, and moderately tannic. It will probably drink well young but should age nicely for 10-15 years. This superb estate never misses a beat with its wines, which are all reasonably drinkable at a young age, normally exhibit terrific Provencal typicity, and have uncommon aging potential. I still have some soft years like 1983 and 1985 in my cellar that are holding up beautifully."
-Wine Advocate 90-92

"Dark red. Pure raspberry and strawberry on the nose, with a gentle floral element. Suave, silky flavors of fresh red fruits and floral pastilles. A poised, refreshing classique, displaying impressive balance and finishing sweetness."
-International Wine Cellar 89-92
