Expert Reviews

The 2005 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes comes primarily from the famed sector of Châteauneuf-du-Pape known as La Crau. This is a beautiful wine that is more elegant than the regular Châteauneuf-du-Pape, with raspberry and kirsch liqueur notes, a deep ruby color, finesse, acidity, and ripe tannin. It seems to be a terroir-based statement of Châteauneuf-du-Pape that cuts a style midway between the traditionalists and the modernists. This wine will need several years of bottle age, and should drink nicely for 15 or more years.91 - 93 Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (FEB/2007)

Still shrouded by its bacony toast, this has a lot to resolve, but the massive core of blackberry, black currant, fig, loam, dark tobacco and molten chocolate is very impressive. The finish shows the grip and balance of the vintage, boding well for serious cellaring. Best from 2009 through 2032. 1,500 cases made.Rating 96 - Wine Spectator (DEC/2007)
