Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, November 2007
Has lots of grip with a very stony undertow carrying notes of wet pebble sweet earth licorice coffee and fig. Pretty lavender and spice box hints flitter in the background as well. Dark and chewy on the finish for now... Has lots of grip with a very stony undertow carrying notes of wet pebble sweet earth licorice coffee and fig. Pretty lavender and spice box hints flitter in the background as well. Dark and chewy on the finish for now this needs time to settle into itself. Best from 2009 through 2030. 1000 cases made

($68-$105; 95% grenache and 5% mourvedre) Inky ruby. Stunningly fragrant bouquet of fresh red berries cherry minerals Asian spices and fresh flowers; with its combination of power and purity this smells like a Musigny... ($68-$105; 95% grenache and 5% mourvedre) Inky ruby. Stunningly fragrant bouquet of fresh red berries cherry minerals Asian spices and fresh flowers; with its combination of power and purity this smells like a Musigny. Deeply concentrated raspberry and cherry flavors are complicated by anise cinnamon and floral pastille with big but interwoven tannins adding grip. Finishes with outstanding silky persistence and a strong red berry character.

Made from 75% Grenache and 15% Syrah, the 2005 Châteauneuf du Pape la Cuvee du Papet is deeper and richer than the classic cuvee. It exhibits gorgeous notes of sweet cherry and currant-like fruit, iron, garrigue and olive tapenade. This is followed by a full-bodied, structured, layered and concentrated Châteauneuf du Pape that has the balance and class to continue to evolve for another 10-15 years. 94+ - Jeb Dunnuck

Lots of potential here and this 2005 Clos du Mont Olivet Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Cuvée du Papet could end up being as good as their blockbuster 1998. The nose shows rich dark cherry and cassis fruit charred earth meat and licorice notes and there's nice complexity typicity and depth. The palate is really concentrated structured and rich with medium to full body lots of structure and plenty of length with ripe fine grained tannins. While this has enough fruit to buffer to structure and make this enjoyable now give it 5 years and I'm banking on this being a rock star bottle.
