The same can be said about the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve and it offers incredible cassis, toasted bread, bouquet garni and earth aromas and flavors to go with full-bodied richness, incredible concentration and a seamless, thrillingly pure texture that’s hard to believe. It’s easily the greatest wine I’ve tasted from this vintage. - Jeb Dunnuck

This shows impressive depth and power for the vintage delivering layer upon layer of mulled spice crushed currant and plum fruit with anise tobacco graphite and violet notes all of which stretch out through the long racy sweet earth-filled finish. This domaine is quietly producing some awesome wines. Drink now through 2024. 230 cases made. -JM

Not made in every vintage only about 125 cases were produced from a plot of century-old grenache vines planted on sandy soils. This darkly colored wine has compact and rather closed aromas with smoky overtones mingling with blueberry jam. The palate reveals gobs of richly textured pure fruit that coats the tongue. Almost confectionary and viscous the blueberry jam flavors are borderline ripe yet never giving the sense that it is over-the-top. With so much flavor now it is hard to resist yet 5-10 years will bring provide some softness toning down the juicy primary fruit.
