La Chapelle St Theodoric Chateauneuf du Pape le Grand Pin 2011
94 points Jeb Dunnuck (Wine Advocate): Looking at the 2011s, both of which showed much better from bottle than barrel, the 2011 Chateauneuf-du-Pape La Guigasse (100% Grenache from sandy soils) has a Rayas-like perfume of sweet red cherries, currants, white pepper, spring flowers and underbrush. Fermented with 100% whole-cluster and aged all in neutral, larger barrels, this medium to full-bodied, dense and beautifully textured effort is superb now, yet should easily have 10-12 years of ultimate longevity. Drink now-2023. (Oct 2013)
This is a Chateauneuf with some excellent acidity and spirited fruit. It was a great pairing with tonight's diner of loin lamb chops, potatoes, and cucumber salad. The dominant theme is cherry. It will bring elegance to a fine dinner with roasted meat or chicken. It's a great bottle!
