The 2006 Vieilles Vignes however lags its '07 counterpart in aromatics only. Where the '07 is fresh and focused the '06 is just slightly more rustic and heavy showing deep black cherry raspberry licorice and garrigue. The palate is every bit as good as the '07 and if anything offers a touch more integration and finesse at this point. It's also interesting to note that Sophie prefers her '06 Vieilles Vignes to the '07 at this point. Either way this is a stunning wine that will drink for 20+ years.

One of the wines of the vintage is the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes, and I still remember tasting this beauty at the domaine on release. Almost all Grenache and aged in tank, it has sensational notes of wild strawberries, raspberries, flowers, olive and Provencal garrigue all literally soaring from the glass. This gives way to a full-bodied, utterly seamless, weightless 2006 that has fabulous depth of fruit, fine tannin and a finish that just won’t quit. It’s flat out great today, but will continue knocking your socks off for another decade. - Jeb Dunnuck

Explosive aromas of dark berries kirsch vibrant minerals cured meat and garrigue; smells like a great Mazis-Chambertin. Finely etched red and black fruit flavors completely stain the palate with gentle smokiness and candied flowers adding nuance. It's rare to encounter this level of elegance from the southern Rhone. The finish is sweet smoky and strikingly pure leaving strong mineral notes behind. As usual one of the best wines of the vintage.

Still tight with perfumed notes of violet and incense starting to unwind from the core of dark plum boysenberry and raspberry fruit. Plenty of spice and dark licorice notes wait in reserve on the fleshy powerful finish... Still tight with perfumed notes of violet and incense starting to unwind from the core of dark plum boysenberry and raspberry fruit. Plenty of spice and dark licorice notes wait in reserve on the fleshy powerful finish where there's an undertow of sweet earth. Mostly Grenache with a small percentage of mixed varieties. Best from 2010 through 2030. -JM
