Far more structured, with significant minerality, power and tannin is the dense ruby/purple-colored 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Sixtine (45% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 25% Mourvedre). This cuvee is always aged in 100% small barrels, of which 9-10% are new. A backward wine for the vintage, it reveals serious structure, powerful tannin and abundant mineral notes backed up by full body and impressive layers of fruit and structure. It requires 4-5 years of cellaring, and should last 15-20 years thereafter.

Winemaker's Notes:

One of Châteauneuf-du-Pape’s great exponents, and one of the Rhône Valley’s most dependably luxurious wines. Its pronounced fruitscape is a testament to care- ful farming and winemaking in off-vintages, and is a thrill to look forward to when the wine reaches maturity in great vintages.
