The 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape is a beauty! Classic and textbook in style, with ample cured meats, earth, herbs and mature currant and blackberry fruit, it flows onto the palate with full-bodied richness, a gorgeous texture and serious length. It’s drinking beautifully now, but will continue to shine through 2021. - Jeb Dunnuck

Flamboyant, wild Chateauneuf du Pape aromas of raspberry, pepper, leather, Cuban cigar tobacco, fruitcake, game and truffle. Explosive, layered and deep, with captivating flavors of game, leather, melting chocolate cake, leather, incense and black pepper. Wonderfully suave and silky but with terrific verve and grip. Finishes with fine, palate-coating tannins and sneaky length. If someone sticks a glass of this in your face and you don't say Chateauneuf du Pape, you should give up wine drinking.

This has moved into its second phase nicely, sporting its distinctive juniper, allspice and alder notes, with now-softening black currant and fig fruit inlaid with tea and sandalwood. Still has nice cut on the finish and should linger gracefully over the next several years. What a bargain this was on release. Tasted from magnum.—2001 Châteauneuf-du-Pape non-blind retrospective (November 2011). Drink now through 2017. – JM
