Chateauneuf du Pape Halos de Jupiter Philippe Cambie 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"This red is densely packed and sports a good old-school edge, offering aromatic bittersweet cocoa, chestnut and roasted mesquite notes that give way to pure blackberry and cassis fruit, gliding effortlessly through the silky finish. A hedonistic wine with serious definition...93" WS 11/11 "Seemingly more traditional than the Adrastee, yet with an identical elevage and aging in 1-year-old Burgundy barrels, the 2009 Les Halos de Jupiter Chateauneuf-du-Pape, 100% very old vine Grenache from a plot located between Orange and Courthezon, boasts classical aromas of garrigue, licorice-laced raspberry and currant fruits, wild flowers, saddle leather, and a salty, sea breeze-like minerality that shows up more with air. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, with plenty of ripeness that.s balanced by solid focus, ripe tannin, and superb freshness, this delicious Chateauneuf-du-Pape shows best with a short decant, and should continue to dish out pleasure over the coming 10-12 years...92" RR 09/11
