Domaine Paul Avril Châteauneuf du Pape Clos des Papes 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"...A complex nose of resiny pine forest notes intermixed with black raspberry,sweet kirsch, licorice and lavender jumps from the glass of this deepruby/purple-colored wine. Full-bodied, powerful, rich, and tannic, this winebegs for 4-5 years of bottle age and should keep for 25+ years. In short, youcan't go wrong with either of these vintages, although the 2006 will providemore up-front charm, and the window for drinking it will be just as long as the2005. Patience will be required for the 2005."<br/>(Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - Oct-2007)
