Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, June 2012
A ripe solid version with mulled dark currant and fig fruit wrapped with toasted anise ganache and pastis notes. There's a racy feel on the finish with a twinge of chalk adding length. Best from 2013 through 2023. -JM

All from broken limestone soils the 2009 Ogier Caves des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Terroir Eclats Calcaires is darker in color than the Galets Roules and shows an earthy smoky mineral-driven profile (not far from the Galets Roules in character) with ripe black cherry and pit styled fruits. The minerality is what sets it apart and this medium-bodied Châteauneuf-du-Pape has good acidity a concentrated mid-palate and a dry finish.
