Cellier Saint Benoît "Savagnin" Arbois-Pupillin 2004
"2004 Saint Benoit Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Grande Garde: Saint Benoit is a result of four friends combining their families' holdings into one estate. The families own 26 hectares throughout CdP with some parcels over 100 years old. The Grande Garde is their entry level CdP. It is a blend of 39% Grenache, 33% Mourvedre, 22% Syrah, 6% Cinsault with 40% in spending 8 months in foudre and remaining in tank resulting in a spectacular CdP value. Excellent puriety of fruit with Provencal herbs, kirsch liqueur, raspberries and rose petals. The impressive definition, smooth tannins and persistent finish will please now and over the next 3 to 5 years. 90 Points, John P. Uniacke, B-21 Wine Company "

Wine Advocate ReviewThe 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Grande Garde reveals high levels of tannin and richness, and seems to have the most stuffing and potential for aging, but it is disjointed.

Dark red. Wild, gamey aromas of bitter cherry, licorice, raw steak, leather and roasted coffee. Chunky and rich on the palate, with the wild meaty qualities repeating and expanding with air. A distinctly uncivilized but intriguing wine that may settle down with time.

Readers who love intense Provencal garrigue characteristics in addition to notes of new saddle leather, crushed pepper, and kirsch will get a blast from the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Grande Garde. The flamboyant aromatics are accompanied by a full-bodied effort boasting a sweet attack, mid-palate, and finish, and loads of herb, plum, and black cherry characteristics. Because of low acidity and ripe tannin, this classic Chateauneuf can be drunk upon release, and over the following 10-12 years.
