The Cuvee Chante Le Merle possesses a nice shiny red color with dark purple highlights. The nose is elegant and complex. This very aromatic Chateauneuf-du-Pape is elegant and long in mouth. A powerful wine with a cellar potential for many years.
"Also beautiful, with gorgeous raspberry, kirsch, licorice, ground pepper and assorted Provencal herbs, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Chante Le Merle Vieilles Vignes (first introduced in 1990 and an old vine blend of 85% Grenache and the balance Syrah and Mourvedre) offers a decidedly pretty (especially for this cuvee), polished profile with full body richness, excellent mid-palate depth and a seamless, elegant texture that carries through the blockbuster finish. Up with the top wines in the vintage, it is reasonably approachable now, yet will evolve gracefully for 15+ years given its balance and harmony. "
The Wine Advocate
"Lovely black tea and smoldering charcoal notes lead the way, with a core of plum, blackberry and black currant fruit lending sinew to the flesh, resulting in a well-defined, plum skin-framed finish."
"Vivid ruby. Vibrant aromas of redcurrant and cherry are lifted by floral and Asian spice top notes. Juicy and penetrating, with flavors of ripe red fruits and candied flowers. Spicy, focused and appealingly sweet, picking up zesty minerality with air and finishing with harmonious tannins and very good length.

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.
