Winemaker's Notes

"Vivid ruby. Lively strawberry and raspberry aromas are complicated by lavender and minerals. Fresh, sharply defined red berry flavors stain the palate, giving no hint of fat or excess weight. Impressively elegant wine with outstanding finishing clarity, lift and persistence."
-International Wine Cellar

Critical Acclaim

"Perfumy, with sandalwood and freshly ground espresso up front, followed by a pronounced mineral streak that runs through the warm stone, dried cherry and currant fruit. The finish is long and dusty. Best from 2009 through 2028."
92 Points

"The outstanding 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Hautes Brusquieres Cuvee Speciale offers beautiful kirsch liqueur, cedar, tobacco leaf, spice box, licorice, and earth notes. This Burgundian-like Chateauneuf du Pape comes across like a grand cru Corton. Dark ruby-hued, with full body, and a fleshy, long personality, it should drink well for 12-15+ years. "
