Cellar/Tasting Notes
The Cuvee Reservee exhibits a dark red with a purple body. The beautiful aromas of black ripe fruits like morello cherries and raspberries, juniper berries, black pepper and garrigue initially radiate but after several years ageing, the aromas will be characterized by plums, dried stone fruits, leather, fur, and sandalwood. On the palate, the wine is round, rich and powerful with soft tannins. With time, it will evolve into a more complex and spicy wine.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 94
""The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee shares a similar meaty, gamy character intermixed with abundant notes of kirsch liqueur, ground pepper and Provencal herbs, sweeter tannins than the 2005, a voluptuous, full-bodied mouthfeel, and a long finish. The fruit seems sweeter and I would not be surprised if the 2006 has higher alcohol than the 2005 (although all top vintages here tend to be in the 14.8-15.6 range). This big, rich, impressive effort will age effortlessly over the next 20-25 years."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 94
"Saturated red. Impressively complex scents of red and dark berries, cherry, leather and garrigue, with smoky minerals and dried flowers adding interest. Juicy raspberry and blackcurrant flavors pack serious punch and are seriously concentrated but there's a real elegance to this wine. Licorice and candied flowers echo on the long, sappy finish. This looks to be as good as the superb 2005 today."
