Winemaker's Notes

"The single vineyard Chateauneuf du Pape Mourre des Perdrix emerges from a vineyard in the northeastern sector of the appellation, just west of Courthezon. Maret's parcel includes 30-50 year old vines. The blend is 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah, and 15% Mourvedre. The 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Mourre des Perdrix possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as a gamy, earthy nose with plenty of black fruit, dried herb, tapenade, balsam wood, and sweet cherry/currant fruit aromas. This classy, complex 2000 marries power and elegance in a medium to full-bodied, pure style. Anticipated maturity: now-2014."

"Michel Maret is one of the new stars of the southern Rhone. I am glad to see his wines properly represented in the United States."
-The Wine Advocate
