Winemaker's Notes:

"The powerful 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Gallimardes exhibits a saturated dark ruby/purple-tinged hue, medium to full-bodied, powerful flavors, high tannin, loads of structure, superb purity, richness, and depth, but it requires 2-3 years of bottle age. It should evolve for 15-20 years." WA 10/07 "Dark and alluring, with warm fig and ganache aromas pushed by a full-throttle palate of dark bramble, mixed berry, sweet spice and fruitcake notes. Has a long, almost Port-like finish, but the grip and minerality is there to keep this driving along. 90 percent Grenache, with Syrah. Best from 2009 through 2028. 750 cases made." WS 06/08
