Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Papet Clos Mont Olivet Joseph Sabon 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Hard on the nose and assertively mineral and bloody. Meaty quality over a base of tarry, roasted leathery black fruits. On the palate this is rich yet rustic with a pronounced pepper attack, followed by somewhat coarse tannins all wrapped in black plum and cherry fruit. The mid-palate gains more focus but the flavors here remain roasted, brooding and dark, with a finish that sees the structure emerging on the finale. This does develop some nice, nuanced spice tones on the finish but it is ultimately rather tough and dark. 87pts
