Chateauneuf-du-Pape Clos la Roquete 2012

Member Review by maffe:

A medium ruby color and an intense, spicy aroma of dark chocolate, licorice and prune. Similar, intense aromas on the palate, plus fruity blackberry, with good body and tannins. Very enjoyable and easy to match with food.

Bright ruby. Raspberry, lavender and spices on the highly perfumed nose and in the mouth.

Revealing a slightly deeper color, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape possesses more concentration, power, definition and focus along with the vintages good acidity, freshness and vibrancy.

Robert Parker had this to say about Domaine la Roquete: "Shrewd connoisseurs of Chateauneuf du Pape should be paying attention to what is taking place at La Roquete. This property was acquired by the Brunier family (who also own Vieux Telegraphe) in the mid-eighties, and over the last 4-5 years they have made successful efforts to upgrade the quality dramatically." The grapes are sourced from three distinct micro-climates in Chateauneuf. Each lot is vinified separately before the final blend of is made. Parker scored this wine 93 points saying "The finest tradition cuvee yet made, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape (70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 10% Mourvedre aged in foudre and concrete tanks) possesses a deep ruby/purple-tinged color as well as a bouquet of black currants, black cherries, garrigue, pepper, and lavender. It is a full-bodied, ripe, exceptionally elegant, pure wine to drink now or cellar for 12-15 years." Very limited!!
