Deep red. Intensely spicy and powerful on the nose, with notes of tobacco, bitter cherry and balsamico. Quite ripe, lush and creamy but also firmly structured, with unevolved dark berry and bitter chocolate flavors held in check by solid tannins. Very young but offers very good potential.

Good, solid mix of red and dark berry fruit, with briar, tobacco and tar notes on the fleshy finish. solid example of the vintage. Drink now through 2018.

The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape has a deep ruby/purple color and classic Provencal aromatics of garrigue, ground pepper, kirsch, and loamy soil notes. Medium to full-bodied, richly fruity, it has soft, silky tannins and decent acidity. This is a 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape to drink now and over the next 10-12 years.

Ground black pepper and smoke dominate the nose and are immediately followed by fresh strawberry and raspberry on the palate. The 2005 vintage seamlessly merges dark earth and spice with uncharacteristically bright fruit to produce a memorable and extremely drinkable Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Medium ruby color. Vibrant aromas of spicy red berries and rhubarb, with a touch of minerality. Here is another 2003 that betrays no overripe or stewed tones. At once sweet and lively on the palate, with red berry flavors given focus by firm but fine-grained tannins. Finishes with persistent fruit flavors and good grip.

The 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape (aged 50% in foudres, 35% in tank, and 15% in small barrels) shows superb quality with a big, sweet nose of tapenade, ground pepper, kirsch, blackberry, and licorice. The wine has great fruit, full body, tremendous density, and a layered, full-bodied palate with even a hint of truffle emerging. This wine should drink well for up to a decade.
