Clos des Brusquières Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2005

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

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.

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 Chateauneuf du Pape is a solidly constructed, earthy wine with notes of underbrush, pepper, black cherries, and garrigue. It is spicy, medium to full-bodied, and traditionally made. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 10-12 years.

Crushed dark berry, graphite and tobacco notes, with fine-grained tannins carrying the finish. Drink now through 2012.

Fine purity, with red plum and currant fruit enhanced by floral, mineral; and lavender notes. Long on the finish, with licorice and hot stone notes emerging. Best from 2007 through 2020.

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.
