The dense ruby/purple-tinged 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Petits Pieds d'Armand (100% Grenache from sandy soils) exhibits sweet aromas of kirsch liqueur tobacco leaf spring flowers licorice and hints of truffles and incense. Deep full-bodied rich and long this is a superb success for the vintage. Consume it over the next 15+ years.

Exotic aromas of black raspberry kirsch cola and Asian spices with a strong undercurrent of smoky minerals. Pliant and enticingly sweet with smoky red and dark berry compote flavors gentle tannins and an intriguing floral quality. Really stains the palate finishing with outstanding clarity and persistence. This is showing extremely well right now.
