The 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape is a brilliant effort, but it is hard to say if it will be better than the terrific 1998, 2000, and 2001. A blend of 82% Grenache, 8% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre, and 5% Vaccarese, it possesses a deep ruby/garnet color as well as a sweet bouquet of plums, figs, raspberries, cherries, and cola. Medium to full-bodied, with silky tannin, high glycerin, and wonderful density and depth, it is a multi-layered, sensual Chateauneuf du Pape that tastes like a grand cru Burgundy from a ripe, seductive vintage. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
Medium red. Intense aromas of jammy raspberry and wild strawberry, fresh rose, candied violet and magnolia. A remarkably lush, creamy wine, with vibrant, expressive red berry and subtle garrigue flavors that expand all the way through the very long finish. A compelling wine that offers great purity and balance and very suave tannins.
Peppery and earthy, with notes of roasted herbes de Provence, sweet cherry jam, the seaweed wrapper used in sushi bars (nori) with a touch of fig, the soft, round, generously endowed, complex 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape shows a dark garnet color and plenty of glycerin, alcohol, and fruit. Drink it over the next 10-12 years.
Ruby-red. Intense red berry aromas, with complicating notes of orange peel and potpourri. Suave and silky on the palate, with red fruit flavors taking on a lavender aspect with air. The very long and wonderfully sweet finish features fine-grained tannins and a persistent raspberry note.
The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape is superb, but it has to take a back seat to the 2006. Dark ruby with notes of underbrush, the seaweed wrapper nori, kirsch liqueur, and a bit of pepper and spice box, it is deep and broad, with outstanding concentration, moderately high tannin, and a nicely structured, pure mouthfeel. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2022.
The 1994 exhibits that telltale sweet, fragrant, black- raspberry/kirsch scented nose, sweet, expansive, chewy fruit, superb purity, an excellent marriage of power and elegance, and a soft, round, generous finish. This is a well-balanced, symmetrical Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Anticipated maturity: now-2008.
Terrific example of the vintage - this is loaded with the pepper, garrigue, grilled herb and briary tannins, all backed by powerful layers of dark currant, plum and blackberry fruit. Lingering hint of dried orange peel adds further dimension. Best from 2007 through 2030.
