Seductive elegant and refined with subtle but rich flavors in a full-bodied package that includes ripe fruit spice smoke plum and quince pie.

From a top vintage the serious dense dark ruby/purple-colored 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape (48% Grenache 26% Syrah 18% Mourvedre 6% Cinsault and the rest miscellaneous varietals) exhibits a peppery fragrant nose. Aged 60% in neutral wood foudres and 40% in small casks it possesses plenty of black currant and cherry fruit intermixed with hints of licorice and dried herbs a full-bodied texture and a long rich surprisingly up-front personality. It should be drunk over the next 12-14 years.
