Clos du Mont-Olivet Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2006

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Silky, but with solid grip in the background, holding the fig, currant and blackberry fruit at bay, while roasted sage, tobacco and spice notes flitter throughout. Has a very silky, pure finish. Drink now through 2026.

Ruby-red. Musky black raspberry and Indian spices on the nose, with complicating notes of lavender, violet and licorice. Compellingly sweet and velvety on entry, then vibrant and delineated in the mid-palate, with an appealing floral quality complementing the flavors of crushed red berries and cherry. Pungent minerality adds energy to a long, spicy finish.

Vivid red. Fresh raspberry and cherry aromas are complicated by woodsmoke, garrigue and yellow rose. Strikingly pure and sweet, with deep red and dark berry preserve flavors, silky texture and no obvious tannins. Almost Burgundian in style, with a very long, powerfully fruity finish. Herersquo;s another 2007 that will be a stunner out of the gate.

The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape kicks up the intensity ever so slightly. It has a darker ruby hue and an elegant nose of black raspberries, sandy, loamy soil notes, roasted Provencal herbs, and hints of pepper and spice in a medium to full-bodied finish. A blend of 80% Grenache and the rest Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault, Counoise, and Vaccarese aged totally in old wood foudres, it should drink nicely for 8ndash;10 years.

A gorgeous, silky, perfumy style, with tea and incense leading the way for supple-textured raspberry, black fig and mulled currant fruit notes. A perfumy note weaves through the minerally finish, with very fine-grained structure. Stylish for the vintage. Drink now through 2029.

Brothers Jean-Claude, Pierre, and Bernard Sabon own this domaine. Their children mdash; David, Mylene, Celine and Thierry Sabon mdash; are gradually taking the reins, with Thierry handling the winemaking. More than 90 percent of the 62 acres of vines is allocated for their two red Chateauneufs. The regular cuvee in 2005 is 80 percent Grenache, 10 percent Syrah and 5 percent Mourvedre and Cinsault, with the remainder mixed varieties. The wine is aged 18 months mdash; first in tank, then in foudre.
