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.

Tight and rather backward for the vintage, with a strong chalk and iron profile up front that holds the core of dark fig, macerated black currant and roasted woodspice at bay for now. Extra bay, black tea and tobacco notes run through the finish. A gorgeous throwback style that needs time to round into form. Best from 2015 through 2030.

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 wineandrsquo;s sweet fruit.

75% grenache, 15% mourvedre, 10% syrah. By far the most intriguing of the three cuvées produced by Clos du Mont Olivet. Deep ruby in color and supremely complex on the nose. The wine is very pure and concentrated with notes of black cherry, raspberr... John Sweeney.
