Winemaker's Notes

"Inky violet. Powerful blueberry and boysenberry aromas complicated by lavender and mocha. Vibrant and sharply delineated in the mouth, with gentle acidity and a chewy texture to the pure dark fruit flavors. A mineral element emerges on the back and carries through the long, juicy finish. This impressively concentrated wine possesses both weight and finesse."
-International Wine Cellar 92-95

"As for their top cuvee, the 2005 Cuvee du Quet (in this vintage 65% Grenache and 35% Mourvedre, much like previous years) exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color, superb purity and intensity, with a full-bodied palate, loads of black fruits intermixed with crushed rocks, flowers, and a bit of licorice and incense. It is a powerful, layered wine of beautiful purity and balance. It will need 2-4 years of bottle age given the tannin profile and fresh acidity; however, the wine should keep for 15 or more years. In the northernmost sector of Chateauneuf, the Chaussy family run this fine estate that has been making brilliant Chateauneuf du Pape for over a decade."
-Wine Advocate 91-93

95 Points

"A dark, chewy style, with serious layers of fig, briar, espresso and loam. But this isn't top-heavy, with a beam of blackberry fruit running through the finish and enough well-embedded acidity for length and balance. Impressive. Best from 2008 through 2027."
94 Points

"The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Quet exhibits a dense ruby/purple color to the rim and broad, impressive aromatics of spring flowers, melted licorice, camphor, and blue and black fruits. In the mouth it is layered, powerful, full-bodied, with high tannin, beautiful purity, and a finish that exceeds 45 seconds. This is a knock-out wine. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2025.

(shah-too-NUHF due Pahp) Southern Rhone's landmark region, Chateauneuf du Pape, was the first region to gain AC status in France. That was the 1920s - it's history goes much further back than that. As the name suggests, the wine region was named after the new papal home, referring to the period of time in the 1300's when the pope resided in Avignon instead of Rome. Notable Facts...
