The 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (400 cases produced) will be the last vintage of this cuvee. A fabulous wine fashioned from 50-100-year old vines (80% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Mourvedre) its dense purple color is accompanied by gorgeous aromas of blackberries raspberries blueberries minerals and kirsch. As it sits in the glass notions of pepper and spice also emerge from this unevolved backward Chateauneuf. It has high levels of extract and richness as well as formidable tannin. The superb purity immense fruit and unbridled power of this extraordinary wine should result in something magical in about 7-10 years. However this is not one of the more forward 2001 Chateauneuf du Papes so buyers will need patience. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2022+.
