Developed colour of mahogany with a lovely sweet nose which opens slowly. Sweet hay, coffee, leather and liquorice and vaguely remeniscent of someone's Grandfather quietly smoking pipe tobacco. The finish is warm, well balanced, sweet yet savoury yet very long. A mature wine but still vigorous.

The soils of the vineyard are made up of clay and chalk covered with a layer of the classic large peebles ('galets') found in this area, which naturally keep yields low. The vines are over 60 years old and situated near the plateau de Carbières (close to Château Montredon). Harvesting is by hand, with selective sorting of the grapes. The grapes undergo a traditional long 'cuvaison' at quite high temperature and with extended maceration on the skins (21-24 days to extract plenty of colour, fruit and tannins. This is followed by ageing for between 14-18 months in 'foudre' (large oak barrels), 70% vats, 30% Burgundian pieces and casks.

Try with roasted red meats and mature hard cheeses.

"A blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah and the rest Mourvedre and other varietals, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape is a round, generously endowed, corpulent effort with lots of garrigue, pepper, smoked meat, kirsch and raspberry fruit notes. This full-bodied, silky smooth, sexy Chateauneuf can be drunk over the next decade.

"This has a distinctive floral note of violet and rose petal up front, followed by a racy, mouthwatering mix of black currant, cherry and black Mission fig fruit flavors. The long, incense-tinged finish glides along nicely. Best from 2013 through 2020.
