Winemaker's Notes

Varieties: 85% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 3% Mourvèdre, 2% various

Critical Acclaim

"The Chaupin is slightly eclipsed by the profound quality of the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes. Inky/blue/purple, with massive aromatics, an unctuous texture, and superb length on the palate, it is enormously endowed for a 2006. Very pure for a 2006, with sweet tannins as well as amazing length, it will benefit from several years of cellaring, and drink well for 20-25 years."
96 Points

"Opaque purple. Highly alluring, expansive bouquet of blueberry, boysenberry, licorice and smoky Indian spices. Broad, sweet and inviting on the palate, offering weighty dark berry compote flavors and complicating notes of truffle, anise and candied lavender. The spiciness repeats strongly on the finish, which is sappy and wonderfully long. These vines are between 80 and 100 years of age."
95 Points

"Really juicy and vivid, with blueberry, boysenberry and raspberry fruit laced with sweet spice, tobacco and fruitcake notes. The long, racy finish has a great refreshing edge and solid, buried grip. Drink now through 2028. 400 cases imported. "
