While I have a slight preference for the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes to the '05, both are insanely good Chateauneufs that deliver just about everything you could want. Made from 100% old-vine Grenache and aged in a combination of new and used barrels, this beauty offers tons of cassis, licorice, spring flowers, chocolate and garrigue on the nose. Full-bodied, ultra-pure, supple and charming, it has more purity and finesse than the '05, but not as much concentration. Drink it anytime over the coming decade or more. - Jeb Dunnuck

Densely packed with solid grip framing the blackberry boysenberry and plum fruit flavors which are spiked with black tea mesquite raspberry ganache and fig bread notes. The long finish has impressive drive. Grenache. Best from 2010 through 2029. 625 cases made.
