Its dense plum/ruby/purple color is followed by a big sweet perfume of black truffles camphor earth incense new saddle leather and loads of peppery blackberry and herb-infused meaty black cherry fruit. Deep full-bodied and dense with sweet tannin this explosively rich Chateauneuf is a stronger effort than the 2005 2004 or 2003. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028.

Long and rich through the finish. Still quite primal with lots in reserve. Best from 2010 through 2030. - J.M.

In the mouth, the wine displays a medium to full bodied, structured personality to go with a fantastic texture, concentrated fruit and a long finish. If drinking anytime soon this needs plenty of air.

Rich textures and a long, soft, sweet, earthy, fresh, peppy, kirsch filled sensation make up the finish.

It displays superb delineation and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, just a little dryness on the sidelines, perhaps closing down a little with a salty tang on the finish. Very fine.

The blackberry flavors have a cool, foresty feel; the minerality runs deep, as smooth and overt as the galets that pave Beaucastel's vineyards. It's completely welcoming right now, especially with a rack of lamb.
