Cellar/Tasting Notes [This] sensational Chateauneuf du Pape has fabulous fruit concentration. Full-bodied, pure and certainly a star of the vintage [it] is a brilliant achievement in 2009, and I kept going back to the glass for another whiff of the kirsch and black raspberry notes.
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Tasted single blind against its peers. Denis Dubourdieu conjured a wonderful Barsac in 2007. Here there is an initial lightness on the nose that builds with each swirl of the glass. It exhibits fine minerality with apple, dried honey and a touch of wet stone.

Cellar/Tasting Notes "This offers a step up in aromatic elegance with a pure and highly complex nose of extract of cassis, plum, violets and black cherries.

Cellar/Tasting Notes "Since 2002, this great terroir has been fully exploited by the dynamic duo of Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt. Following the monumental 2005,a legend in the making, it is hard to get excited about the 2006, even though it is an outstanding effort. While more austere and not as..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Here the expressive nose is more deeply pitched and a bit more complex as well with its notes of various dark berries, plum, spice and game hints. There is good volume and equally good complexity to the delicious medium-bodied flavors that exude a fine minerality on the firm but refined and..
