Bosquet des Papes Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Tradition 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine has a dense ruby/purple color and a sweet nose of black cherries, crme de cassis, plums, allspice, and smoky gamey notes with a hint of damp earth. The wine is ripe, full-bodied, powerful, and moderately tannic. It will drink well young as well as age nicely for up to 15 years.--Robert Parker Cheese Pairings: Taleggio, ReblochonFood Pairings: Grilled Meats, Country Pate, Beef Tenderloin

The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape has a dense ruby/purple color and a sweet nose of black cherries, creme de cassis, plums, allspice, and smoky, gamey notes with a hint of damp earth. The wine is ripe, full-bodied, powerful, and moderately tannic. It will probably drink well young but should age nicely for 10ndash;15 years. This superb estate never misses a beat with its wines, which are all reasonably drinkable at a young age, normally exhibit terrific Provencal typicity, and have uncommon aging potential. I still have some soft years like 1983 and 1985 in my cellar that are holding up beautifully.

Dense plum/purple-colored, the 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Classique offers up gorgeous aromas of dried Provencal herbs, cedar, cherry jam, plums, and pepper. Ripe and full-bodied, with outstanding concentration as well as purity, this sexy, layered Chateauneuf will provide enjoyment over the next 12-15 years.

Dark red. Pure raspberry and strawberry on the nose, with a gentle floral element. Suave, silky flavors of fresh red fruits and floral pastilles. A poised, refreshing classique, displaying impressive balance and finishing sweetness.

In the traditional vein, with pepper, garrigue, cherry, game, sandalwood and mineral notes that play out against supple tannins and an elegant finish. Drink now through 2017.

Terrific. Round and rich, this velvety red delivers subtle mineral, toasted oak and ripe, flavorful fruit, with wet earth, floral and toasted spice notes. Firm tannins give structure and great length. Best from 2005 through 2020.

Medium-bodied, traditional Châteauneuf, displaying good concentration of sweet and ripe flavors on the midpalate, with enticing tobacco and black currant notes on the lingering finish. Not a blockbuster, but a gentle red. Drink now through 2006.

A wonderful wine from start to finish. The nose has classic aromas of black cherries, herbs and pepper. It is full-bodied in the mouth with cassis and spice flavors. The finish is outstanding and very long. Try it with lamb or game.
