Winemaker's Notes

"The wine, the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Le Tintot, shows meaty bacon fat notes intermixed with blueberry, truffle, and fresh mushrooms. Dense, tannic, and long, it should age effortlessly for 20 or so years given the fact it is all Mourvedre. I am not so sure producing a 100% Mourvedre wine in Chateauneuf du Pape is going to be well-accepted in the marketplace, but it is a small cuvee and certainly impressively done.

Brilliant wines from the northernmost sector of Chateauneuf du Pape emerge from the Chaussy family, and in 2006 they have added a third cuvee which looks sensational although somewhat unusual in that it is 100% Mourvedre cuvee aged in demi-muids and barrels."
-Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 92-94

Critical Acclaim

"(100% mourvedre, from vines averaging 70 years of age) Saturated purple. Explosively aromatic nose offers dark fruit, spice, floral and herb aromas, along with a bright mineral urgency. Smoky cherry and cured meat flavors are brightened by zesty minerality, which adds vivacity to the long, spicy finish. Impressively energetic and precise. This will be interesting to follow."
