Ruby-red. Emphatic red berry nose with gentle spice accents. Gives an almost liqueur-like raspberry impression on the palate, with a suave, silky texture and fully absorbed tannins. The spice notes repeat on the finish but this is all about sweet, supple red berry fruit. This will drink well young.

Enticing, with pastis and warm fig reduction aromas and flavors leading the way, backed by mulled currant fruit, black tea and plum jam notes. The long finish flaunts the fruit of the vintage, while maintaining its balance. An impressive showing for this domaine. Best from 2010 through 2023.

I suspect this wine will turn out at least as good as the upper-range score indicates, with lots of old-vine Grenache characteristics clearly present in this soft, attractive, kirsch-dominated wine. It has a deep ruby/plum color, notes of resin interwoven with pepper, garrigue, and plenty of black cherry and strawberry. This is lush, elegant, and almost Burgundian in its focus and overall personality. It should drink nicely for 10-15 years.

Bright ruby. Highly pungent bouquet of raspberry preserves, peppery spices, herbs and minerals, along with a smoky undertone. Lush, creamy raspberry and blackberry flavors are complicated by spicy floral and garrigue notes and gain sweetness with air. Seamless and sweet on the finish, which eventually leaves notes of sweet red fruits and spices behind. There'd be no crime in drinking this alluring wine right now.

The 2005 Clos des Brusquieres has much more to it, but still retains an elegant nose of dried herbs, black cherries, and black currants intermixed with a bit of cedar and resiny pine forest notes. It is a more complete wine, medium to full-bodied, with good depth, ripeness, and a heady finish. It should drink well for 8–10 years. These tend to be traditionally made Chateauneuf du Papes that can be somewhat irregular in quality, but when they hit the mark they are worthwhile old-style Chateauneuf du Papes. Both the current vintages are certainly very good wines, but perhaps not as impressive as they could be for the vintage’s quality.

The 2004 Clos des Brusquières from the family of Courtil-Thibaut (the proprietors) is a medium-bodied wine that shows sweet, cedary fruitcake notes, some old roasted herbs, and light to medium ruby color. It has some lushness, spiciness, and herbaceousness that are attractive, but it is best drunk over the next 3-4 years. These tend to be traditionally made Chateauneuf du Papes that can be somewhat irregular in quality, but when they hit the mark they are worthwhile old-style Chateauneuf du Papes. Both the current vintages are certainly very good wines, but perhaps not as impressive as they could be for the vintage's quality.
