Chateauneuf du Pape Terre Ferme Jaboulet 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2009 Domaine de Terre Ferme Chateauneuf du Pape is the finest wine I have tasted from this estate in many years. Composed of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre cropped at low yields, it exhibits a deep plum/purple color as well as a striking bouquet of fresh figs, kirsch, black currants, licorice and subtle smoke. Full-bodied with terrific concentration and texture in addition to a long, heady, glycerin-filled finish, ...93" WA 10/11 "Solid, with a good focused beam of cocoa, plum and black currant framed by singed cedar. A touch rigid in the end, but with nice weight and depth..." WS Web Only 2012 "Ruby-red. Spicy redcurrant and cherry aromas are complicated by notes of dried flowers and herbs. Firm and precise in the mouth, offering sappy red berry preserve flavors and a hint of white pepper. Picks up power with air and finishes with very good cut and smoky persistence. This wine is based on 80% grenache...91" IWC 02/12
