The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Exceptionnelle has turned out to be significantly better than I thought last year when I tasted it prior to bottling. The greatest wine Quiot has ever made in my opinion this wine shows a dense ruby/purple color and a gorgeous nose of camphor blackberry kirsch some roast beef and Provencal herbs. Full-bodied with great intensity beautiful purity a multi-dimensional mouthfeel and a spectacular finish of close to a minute this is a fabulous effort from Quiot and should drink well for close to two decades.

Aromas of spice plum cherry and blackberries followed by beautiful floral notes and hints of anise. Nice earthiness about this wine but not overboard creating a great balance with the fresh fruit. Nice and soft in the mid-palate building to a long and flavorful finish with lots of cherry tar and anise. Really delightful!
