Tasting Notes

Jancis Robinson, April 2012, Score: 18.5

If anything slightly more transparent than Les Quartz from the same producer. Another cask sample. Light rim. Very fragrant yet spicy. Tastes very strongly of Mourvèdre with that gamey/animal/oily metal combination. It is certainly a novelty and very brooding and dry on the end but I actually think I personally prefer the lift of the Quartz - even if it is a bit sweeter and more mainstream for the appellation. But this is serious, very thick stuff with more than a hint of dried prunes and is very good wine. Drink 2018-2032

Region

Châteauneuf du Pape, Rhone & Southern France

The emperor of southern Rhône appellations, Châteauneuf du Pape was the first A.O.C. in all of France, created in 1936. Their bottle is unique embossed with the papal coat of arms. Thirteen varieties (14 if Grenache Blanc is counted separately) can be incorporated in the blend. The reds include: Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignan, Cinsault, Terret Noir, Picpoul, Vaccarèse, Counoise, Muscardin, while the whites are Roussanne, Bourboulenc and Clairette. Only a handful of producers use all 13, Grenache often being the highest percentage of the blend. This enables each producer to highlight the varieties that are the ripest and most interesting in any given year. Most Châteauneuf du Pâpes are master examples of wines that can be approachable within the first few years of release yet able to develop superb complexity during many years of cellaring.
