The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Adrastee (100% Grenache) reveals more licorice, lavender, plum, fig and kirsch characteristics in its full-bodied, sumptuous personality. More open-knit and forward than the 2010, it should drink well for 10andndash;15 years.
Saturated ruby. Restrained but pure aromas of blackberry and mulberry are complicated by notes of dried flowers, licorice and cracked pepper. Juicy, spicy and fresh but youthfully linear, featuring pure red and dark berry flavors accented by tangy minerality. Not a dense wine but plenty intense, with strong finishing cut and very good clarity. This wine is 100% grenache, reportedly from vines that are more than a century old, in La Crau, and raised in one-year-old barriques.
Still dark and reticent, with a sleek graphite frame to the reserved core of fig paste, black currant preserves and espresso. Alluring bittersweet cocoa and anise notes cut through the finish, which has well-embedded acidity. Combines modern fruit with dark, brooding structure. Needs to stretch out in the cellar. Best from 2013 through 2023.
