User Reviews for Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes Clos St. Jean 92rr

Winemaker's Notes:

"Vivid ruby. Floral aromas of black cherry, raspberry, minerals, potpourri and underbrush. Fat and pliant but at the same time juicy, with dark fruit flavors picking up fine-grained tannins with air, along with a note of succulent herbs. This is best right now on the back end, which features excellent breadth and sappiness and lingering floral perfume..89-91" IWC 01/10 "Enjoyed over dinner and continuing to drink brilliantly and show the class of the producer, the 2008 Clos Saint Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes is loaded with sweet kirsch and blackberry liqueur, roasted meats, spice-box, and licorice-driven aromatics, medium to full-bodied, and a seamless, upfront, and yet focused and pure texture. It is a beauty that will continue to drink well through 2018. Do not let the vintage scare you away from this wine and while it won‟t be incredibly long lived, it delivers loads of pleasure in an „oh so drinkable‟ package...92" RR 10/12
