But first, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape (70% Grenache and the rest Syrah, Counoise, Mourvedre and Cinsault), one of the densest wines of the vintage, was closed when I tasted it. It revealed a dense purple color and lots of weight and richness, but m... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape from the domaine has turned out much better than I predicted last year. A blend of 70% Grenache and the rest Syrah, Counoise, Mourvedre and Cinsault from the very northern sectors of Chateauneuf du Pape, on terraces just north of Chateau Cabrieres and Domaine Mas de Boislauzon, this deep purple wine has a gorgeous nose of fresh blueberries and kirsch, with almost meaty, chewy richness, loads of glycerin, full body, stunning concentration and purity. It was bottled in May and should have 15 or more years of aging potential.

The limited production 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve, a blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah, should prove to be one of the most profound wines of the vintage. Boasting an inky/blue/purple hue as well as an extraordinary perfume of spring flowers, ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

This captures terrific ripeness, intensity and density with stunning mouthfeel, as layer upon layer of fig sauce, braised plum, cassis, cherry eau de vie and pastis glide along together, with notes of spice, ganache and graphite hanging in reserve. The very long finish has cut and precision, despite its weight. Should age effortlessly. Best from 2014 through 2035.

Vivid ruby. Powerful aromas of black and blue fruits, lavender and Indian spices, with an exotic touch of apricot. Deeply pitched blackberry and blueberry flavors show excellent concentration and vibrancy. Finishes sweet and seamless, with the blackberry and floral notes repeating.
