This has terrific purity with a stunningly pure beam of cassis holding sway over fruitcake melted licorice and incense notes. Shows impressive density for the vintage but this is suave elegant and seamless through the finish with terrific underlying minerality. Best from 2009 through 2030. 7165 cases made. -JM

From the normal tiny yields of this estate (on the order of 22 hectoliters per hectare), the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape from Paul-Vincent has shed its baby fat and now shows a supple, elegant, seamless profile that's hard to resist. Kirsch, licorice, garrigue and sweet spice all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced 2006. It benefits from a short decant, and while showing plenty of maturity, it will evolve gracefully for at least another decade. - Jeb Dunnuck
