Editorial Reviews for Clos du Mont-Olivet Chateauneuf-du-Pape la Cuvee du Papet
What a gorgeous nose full of spice, herb, jammy fruit, a little leather, a little damp tobacco, a touch of menthol and dried flowers. Pretty well resolved in the mouth with solid acidity and s touch of chewy tannins still here. There plenty of earthy, dried fruit, baked apple and dried cherry fruit with a bit of walnut/raisin/ apple strudel. This is long and pretty powerful on the backend with deep dark bitter cherry and black plum fruit tones. There's alot of earthy goodness here with an insinuation of green walnut carrying through on the finish. 2009-2014 90pts
A classic nose full of balck olives, herbs, shoe leather, lavender, burnt blackberry pie drippings and a hint of mushroom and funk. Rich and smooth in the mouth with bright acidity backing up black berry fruit with edges of mushroom and truffle. The tannins are a touch drying and the finish is a touch short, this is passing peak but still a compelling wine. 91pts

Decanted for 2 hours, then vacu-vined, then in the (very cold) fridge for 2 days, then re-opened last night. This is just so intense in every phase right now- deep purple, incredible sweet raspberry fruit on the nose and palate, searing tannins, almost painful to drink, but the depth and quality are evident throughout. another cuvee papet winner. No clue how to score this numerically.
Cured meats, dark sweet thick overripe cherries and a bit of wood on the nose. Palate is thick and creamy, smooth tannins, and a mouth full of heat and some leather. Those same cured meats are there, maybe some maple soaked bacon. Long, delicious finish.
Big and meaty but with a real mellow finish. This is pure Pape.
Alluring, brick and dark red color. Not an overly expressive nose, but nice plum and floral notes. Silky smooth on palate. Finish is a bit hot and acidic. Short too.
Rich, heady nose of blackcurrants and ethanol. Soft, showing age with a tar like quality. Nice acidity with truffles on the finish. Very nice.
This wine is cruising its way into maturity, displaying a savory nose of grilled rosemary, cedar, hearty plum, salted pork and pepper. The palate shows good concentration, w/ a chewy overlay sweet raspberry fruit pushing the mineral core through the fresh, juicy finish, 93 points.

Brilliant ruby. Spice- and mineral-accented red fruits and lavender on the intensely perfumed nose. Juicy, focused and pure, with excellent depth to its raspberry and cherry compote flavors. Puts on weight with air without any loss of vibrancy. The mineral element carries strongly through the finish, which features silky tannins and a strong red fruit quality. Extremely elegant Chateauneuf, balanced to age.
Up there with the creme de la creme of the vintage, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape La Cuvee du Papet is a gorgeous wine that possesses classical notes of ground pepper, cured meats, tobacco leaf and currant fruit. Medium to full-bodied and relatively approachable by this cuvee’s standards, with beautiful purity of fruit and fine tannin, it should benefit from short-term cellaring and have an easy 12–15+ years of evolution. Drink 2015–2027.

The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition offers abundant aromas of Christmas fruitcake, cassis, kirsch, spice box, smoked game and charcuterie. The wine hits the palate with a thunderous display of sweet glycerin, rich, ripe fruit, some structure and a moderately tannic, long finish. It will be even better with 2andndash;3 years of cellaring, and should last for 12andndash;15+ years.

Deep ruby-red. Ripe red and dark berry scents are complicated by notes of garrigue and licorice. Lush, sappy black raspberry and mulberry flavors are lifted by a zesty mineral note and a hint of cracked pepper. Shows good heft and finishes with sw... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
