Winemaker's Notes

"Dark red. Intensely floral, expansive bouquet of fresh strawberry and raspberry, lilac, rose and dusty minerals. Fresh red berry flavors display a strikingly exuberant personality, with slow-building tannins adding grip to the finish. Leaves a strong spicy impression and possesses outstanding persistence."
-International Wine Cellar 92-95

"The single-vineyard wine from a special parcel of old vines and a blend of 65% Grenache and 35% Mourvedre is the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Quet. Opaque ruby/purple, this is a brilliant wine and one of the stars of the vintage. Full-bodied, with superb purity, loads of blackberry and kirsch notes intermix with smoke, creosote, incense, and truffle. Full, powerful, rich, with sweet tannin and good acidity, this should be a blockbuster and drink beautifully for at least two decades. Brilliant wines from the northernmost sector of Chateauneuf du Pape emerge from the Chaussy family..."

"Dark red. Pungent, spicy scents of red berry liqueur and kirsch, along with deeper mocha and licorice qualities. Energetic and gently sweet, with deep red and dark berry flavors underscored by zesty minerals and firmed by dusty tannins. Gains weight and power with air, finishing spicy and broad, with excellent sappy cling and a strong echo of dark fruit. I'd let this one rest for a few years. Range: 92-95"
95 Points

"Very rich and polished, with layers of black Mission fig, bittersweet ganache, hoisin sauce, melted black licorice, Black Forest cake and currant confiture, all stretched over ample but fine-grained tannins. Really long, with ample grip for the vintage. Grenache and Mourvèdre. Best from 2010 through 2028."

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...
