Dark and dense, this very powerful Châteauneuf oozes dark chocolate, black currant, tar, mineral, grilled beef and roasted chestnut flavors that just won't quit. Yet despite its exotic range of flavors, it has a pure, silky core of fruit that remains steadfast through the extremely long finish. An awesome young wine. Best from 2006 through 2024.
More open and exuberant than the 2000, with a sweeter core of fruit, the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape tastes like the essence of this region, with its garrigue, leather, ground herbs and sweet, licorice-laced blackberry fruit. It too is medium to full-bodied, balanced and beautifully textured on the palate, with a mature, yet still youthful profile that’s perfect for prime- time drinking over the coming 2-4 years.
