Clos de Brusquieres Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2009
The average age of the vines is 40 years, with some vines dating back to the early 1900s. All the grapes are hand harvested during multiple passes through the vines. The wine is fermented in cement tanks, lasting anywhere from 3-4 weeks; the cap is punched down and the wine is pumped over. Ageing takes place in neutral wood. The wines are neither filtered nor fined.

A rather polished, modern style, with rounded mouthfeel to the rich layers of cassis, plum sauce and blackberry preserves, all followed by lush fruitcake and Christmas pudding notes on the finish. Stays rounded throughout, but has ample length and density, and should show more range with cellaring. More modern in style than typical for this domaine. Drink now through 2020. -JM Vivid ruby. Aromas of raspberry compote, smoke and potpourri, enlivened by a strong suggestion of cannabis.
