Even Grand Veneurandrsquo;s traditional cuvandeacute;e shines in 2009, offering up notions of black cherries and chocolate liqueur. Itandrsquo;s full bodied and richly textured, with a long, velvety finish. Simply put, itandrsquo;s plush and delicious, with no need to age it any further. Drink nowandndash;2020.

Dark purple. Sexy red and dark berries and cherry on the nose, made more complex by an exotic hint of apricot coming up with air. Deep, chewy and weighty but surprisingly fresh, offering black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and mounting floral character. Delivers a load of sweet dark fruit and finishes with lingering florality and good persistence.

The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape (a 3,500 case blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre from nearly 10 year old vines) exhibits abundant notes of sweet cassis, licorice, kirsch, garrigue and tobacco leaf in a full-bodied, layered, opulently textured style. This hedonistic turn-on should continue to drink well for a decade or more.

The 2009 Grand Veneur Chandacirc;teauneuf du Pape (made from the same blend as the 2008 andmdash; 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre) exhibits an inky/plum/purple color along with an impressive bouquet of Asian hoisin sauce, blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, licorice and camphor. It is a dense, full-bodied, rich, heady wine with silky tannins, low acidity and abundant glycerin. Drink it over the next decade or more. Grand Veneurandrsquo;s two luxury offerings are among the finest wines of the appellation.

Still showing some grip up front, with a firm, raisined edge of plum skin thatandrsquo;s holding the core of crushed raspberry and blackberry fruit at bay for now. Additional licorice and spice notes hang in the background. Needs a little time to soften. Best from 2012 through 2018.
