Winemaker's Notes:

"Ruby-red. Spicy red and dark berry aromas are complicated by musky tobacco and underbrush. Firm and youthfully dry, with medium weight and chewy cherry and cassis flavors carrying through the finish."
-International Wine Cellar 89-92

"... the 2006 is a blend of 75% Grenache, 15% Syrah, and the rest Mourvedre. Pure kirsch liqueur notes intermix with lavender, pepper, and some loamy soil notes, and are followed by a deep, dense wine with outstanding potential. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and low acidity, it should drink beautifully for 12-15 years. Brilliant wines from the northernmost sector of Chateauneuf du Pape emerge from the Chaussy family..."
-Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 90-92
