External Reviews for Philippe Cambie Chateauneuf-du-Pape les Halos de Jupiter Adrastee
The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape is a smaller cuvee (150 cases) produced from over 100-year-old Grenache vines located in La Crau (it has a darker label without the word andldquo;Biodynamieandrdquo; included). Exhibiting attractive finesse and elegance as well as a Burgundian-like style, it offers up aromas of forest floor, red and black currants, sweet cherries, camphor and loamy soil. This full-bodied Chateauneuf should drink well for 10andndash;15 years.
This is densely packed and sports a good old-school edge, with aromatic bittersweet cocoa, chestnut and roasted mesquite notes giving way to pure blackberry and cassis fruit, which glides effortlessly through the silky finish. A hedonistic wine with serious definition. Best from 2012 through 2023.
