Chateauneuf du Pape Adastree Halos de Jupiter Philippe Cambie 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"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...93" WS 09/11 "Coming from 100+ year-old vines from the La Crau region and aged in 1-year-old burgundy barrels, the 2009 Les Halos de Jupiter Châteauneuf-du-Pape Adrastée delivers a brilliant, complex array of raspberry, red licorice, garrigue, baking spices, and crushed flowers on the nose. Up front and perfumed aromatically, the palate doesn't lose a beat and shows a medium to full-bodied, rich texture, sweet fruit, and silky tannin on the, lush, heady finish. Overall, this is a thrilling Châteauneuf-du-Pape that should benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age, and drink well for 12-15 years...93" RR 09/11
