Chateauneuf du Pape 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Clos des Papes is one of the few estates to use all permitted varieties for both red and white Chateauneuf. They are well‐known for producing one of the most authentic and long‐lived examples of the appellation having started estate bottling in 1896.

As always, I tasted through all the different foudres, and the 2008 Chateauneuf du Pape, which will have essentially the same blend, is a much less powerful wine than the 2007. Made from some of the smallest yields ever (16 hectoliters per hectare), with 14.7% alcohol, the 2008 should turn out to be a very good, elegant effort vaguely reminiscent of their 1999. It exhibits a deep ruby color as well as abundant black cherry fruit intermixed with notions of licorice, herbs, and earth, medium body, and good purity, depth, and ripeness. It should drink well at a young age, an anomaly for Clos des Papes, and keep for 10-12 years.
