Well made with nice ripe fruit and good Rhone herb undercore but not terribly complex and way overpriced compared to other '05 CdP of similar quality. Not in the Pegau, Beaucastel, Clos des Papes circle although the price is.

Sehr dunkles Rubin. Viel Kirschfrucht, Zwetschgenkompott und ein Hauch Zimtstern in der offenen, intensiven Nase. Grossartig strukturierter Gaumen, die tolle Fruchtaromatik bestätigt sich, etwas Gewürznelke und eine Prise schwarzer Pfeffer gesellen sich dazu; sehr angenehme Tanninstruktur, körperreich und opulent, langes Finale.

The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Speciale, which includes 100% stems from a vineyard planted in pure sand in the Courthezon sector of Chateauneuf du Pape, has the classic kirsch liqueur notes with licorice, pine forest notes, and plenty of pepper. ...

The 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a blend of mostly Grenache with some Syrah and Mourvedre. Provencal notes of herbes de Provence, smoked meats, pepper, and black cherries jump from the glass as well as the flavors of this wine, which is medium to full-bodied, tannic, and backward. It will need 4-5 years of bottle age and last for 15 or more.

Still shrouded by its bacony toast, this has a lot to resolve, but the massive core of blackberry, black currant, fig, loam, dark tobacco and molten chocolate is very impressive. The finish shows the grip and balance of the vintage, boding well for serious cellaring. Best from 2009 through 2032.

The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (90% Grenache and equal parts Mourvedre and Syrah) comes primarily from the famed sector of Chateauneuf du Pape known as La Crau. This is a beautiful wine that is more elegant than the regular Chateauneuf du Pape, with raspberry and kirsch liqueur notes, a deep ruby color, finesse, acidity, and ripe tannin. It seems to be a terroir-based statement of Chateauneuf du Pape that cuts a style midway between the traditionalists and the modernists. This wine will need several years of bottle age, and should drink nicely for 15 or more years. Introduced first in 2001, Michel Tardieu makes a traditional Chateauneuf du Pape from 100% Grenache and 100% stems. He believes the wine needs at least 5andndash;7 years of bottle age and then is meant to last 25andndash;30 years.

The enormously endowed 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (a 550-case blend of 70-year old Grenache) reveals a knock-out nose of licorice, kirsch liqueur, pepper, herbs, and spice. It is long and opulent, with oodles of sweet glycerin, great purity, and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute.

Reminiscent of Pomerol's Château l'Evangile, the inky/purple-colored 2001 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes offers up aromas of violets, blackberries, and raspberries. Full-boded and intensely concentrated, with backgournd notes of new oak, this phenomenally pure, rich, structured 2001 demands 3-5 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2007- 2018.

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Robert Parker: A wine that is also already in bottle and a terrific bargain is the 2009 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Les Becs Fins. Aged totally in tank, this blend is dominated by Grenache, with some Syrah, Cinsault, and Mourvedre. A relatively large cuvee by Michel Tardieu’s standards, it exhibits super-deep black raspberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with licorice, lavender, and a hint of Provencal herbs. Round, corpulent, generous, and full-bodied, it is a dazzling effort for this price point and can be drunk over the next 4-5 years. (Oct 2010)
