Critical Acclaim

"The spectacular 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Vieilles Vignes is one of the monumental Chateauneuf du Papes of the vintage. A saturated plum/purple color reveals a thick, rich appearance. The wine combines freshness, power, elegance, and great intensity, all wrapped into a full-bodied, concentrated personality with phenomenal persistence on the palate. Remarkably pure, but neither over-done nor over-ripe, this spectacular, youthful Chateauneuf du Pape should hit its prime in 5-6 years, and last for two decades. It is a brilliant tour de force!"
98 Points

"Blockbuster Châteauneuf--rich and thick yet loyal to local customs with its traditional emphasis on plum, leather, wet earth, cedar, tobacco, coffee and mineral. A wine like none other--and unhindered by some modernistic oak treatment. Fabulously authentic stuff."
94 Points

"Ruby-red. Roasted red plum, cherry liqueur and grilled meat on the nose; superripe but not over the top. Then thick, sweet, deep and young, with a compelling flavor of creme de cassis Powerful, dense, classic grenache en surmaturite Finishes with explosive length and lush, very fine tannins. Amazingly ripe, but wears its high alcohol gracefully.

Range: 93+ Points"
