Winemaker's Notes

"The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape (85% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre, and 5% Syrah) again shows the telltale and classic signature of many Chateauneuf du Papes – kirsch liqueur, raspberries, licorice, a loamy, resiny soil note, and beautiful roasted herbs and pepper. It is ripe, rich, reveals zesty acidity, medium to full body, and an approachable style that will make it undeniably charming and even irresistible for another 12 or more years. In the northernmost sector of Chateauneuf, the Chaussy family run this fine estate that has been making brilliant Chateauneuf du Pape for over a decade."
-Wine Advocate 90-92

"Deep ruby. Raspberry and strawberry aromas lifted by exotic spices and an intriguing orange zest quality. At once sweet and nicely focused, with cocoa- and nutmeg-laced red berry flavors demonstrating the freshness of the vintage. Finishes sweet and long, with very fine tannins and a lingering orange zest tone."
-International Wine Cellar 88-91
