This gushes with blueberry, fig and black cherry fruit, all seamlessly woven with silky, fine-grained tannins. The stylish finish lets spice and incense notes check in, while buried minerality adds length. Drink now through 2019.

Bright ruby. Highly floral bouquet of red and dark berry preserves, potpourri, smoky minerals and white pepper. Tangy red berry flavors give way to deeper cherry and blackberry in the middle palate, with exotic floral pastille and Asian spice qualities adding complexity. Very suave wine with a seamless, silky texture and strong finishing sweetness, not to mention impressive clarity.

Andre Brunel is one of Châteauneuf-du-Pape's most energetic, competent and talented proprietors. This wine shows a dark ruby/purple color, a super nose of pure raspberry fruit, licorice, herbs, and spice, explosive richness, superb ripeness, an opulent, chewy texture and a long, full-bodied, intense finish with that wonderfully sweet jamminess that characterizes top notch Châteauneuf-du-Pape. From 50 to 107 year old vines at "Les Cailloux," the soft old stones of an ancient riverbed.

Deep, bright red. Pungent, highly complex bouquet evokes cherry-cola, blood orange, fresh flowers and minerals; smells like a Burgundy, and an awfully good one at that. Supple red berry preserve flavors are enlivened by juicy minerality and pick up a wild, smoked meat quality on the finish. Very impressive cuvee classique.

Deep, bright red. Cherry, red plum, raspberry liqueur aromas, along with pungent notes of rose, violet and smoked meat. Conveys the great ripeness of the vintage but the tangy wild strawberry and rhubarb flavors are impressively fresh and delineated too. This expands impressively through the finish without losing focus or verve. While there are no tough tannins to get in the way of early drinking, this has the stuffing to repay cellaring.

Deep ruby garnet hue. Moderately full-bodied. Balanced acidity. moderately extracted. Mildly oaked. Mildly tannic. Brown spices, minerals, red fruits. Engagingly aromatic, with a firm and complex palate. Shows a solid integration of wool and fruit notes.
