Clos du Mont Olivet Châteauneuf-du-Pape la Cuvée du Papet 2009

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

Glass-staining ruby. A highly perfumed, exotic bouquet displays red and dark berry preserves, licorice, cracked pepper and smoky Indian spices; quite dense and masculine for this normally graceful cuvee. Then dense, sappy and pure in the mouth, with impressive lift to its black raspberry, floral and mineral flavors. Expands on the back half and stains the palate with floral and candied berry qualities. The tannins are fine-grained and buried by the winersquo;s sweet fruit.

The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape La Cuvee du Papet may well turn out to be their finest example since the 1998 and 1990. Stylistically, it probably comes closest to resembling the legendary 1990. Notes of roasted meats and smoked duck, with Provencal herbs, truffle, incense, licorice, and pepper, are all there, plus enormous quantities of red and black fruits. This is one heck of a complex wine, with a bouquet that is the essence of southern France, in particular Provence. Full-bodied, powerful, with the glycerin and level of richness covering some lofty tannins, this wine is already accessible and nearly impossible to resist, but my instincts suggest it will be absolutely glorious in another 4ndash;5 years and keep for 15ndash;20. One of the hallmark and legendary estates of Chateauneuf du Pape, having first estate-bottled wine in the early 1930s, Clos du Mont Olivet is a reference point for traditional, long-lived Chateauneuf du Pape.

Vibrant red color. High-pitched aromas of raspberry, candied cherry, allspice and clove, with an intense floral quality that gaining strength with air. Showing more energy and delicacy from bottle than it did from barrel last year; in fact, theres... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2009 Clos du Mont Olivet Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Papet 750ml

Needing more patience, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Papet (75% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre and the balance Syrah aged in foudre) comes from the estatersquo;s oldest vines planted in such famous sites as Mont Olivet and Bois Dauphin. Usually about 1,000 cases are produced and the 2009, which tops the scales at 15.5% alcohol, is brilliant. A gorgeously aromatic bouquet of dark fruits, kirsch, underbrush, raspberries, licorice, spice box and pepper soars from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-tinged wine. Opulent and voluptuously textured with moderate tannins, and a broad, fleshy mouthfeel, it has 15 years of evolution ahead of it. Nevertheless, it is very accessible and upfront now.

Medium red. Multifaceted bouquet of bitter cherry, red plum, tapenade, pipe tobacco and espresso. Quite supple on the palate, with concentrated but finely etched flavors of cherry, plum, fresh herbs, espresso and bitter chocolate. Velvety and quite elegant for a wine of its size, finishing with juicy acidity, sweet tannins and striking length.

The explosive, pedal-to-the-metal, super-duper 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape La Cuveacute;e du Papet has an even darker ruby/purple color, with a glorious intense nose of roast meat and Provencal herbs interwoven with kirsch, black currant, loamy, earthy scents, and some pepper and spice. There is just about everything going on in the aromatics, suggesting that the taster is standing in an open-air marketplace in Provence. Aged 18 months in wood foudres and a blend of 80% Grenache and equal parts Syrah and Mouvedre, this cuveacute;e exhibits huge body, loads of glycerin, fabulous concentration, but is not the least bit heavy or sloppy. This is a sensational expression of old vines that should prove to be their greatest example of this cuveacute;e since their sublime 1990. Moreover, it should drink well and evolve for at least 20+ years.
