In contrast (and almost as good), the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Deus ex Machina is an extroverted, open and insanely perfumed effort that boasts killer blackberry and kirsch-styled fruit to go with layers of spring flowers, exotic spice and graphite. As are all of these efforts, it’s full-bodied, deeply concentrated and textured on the palate, with masses of sweet tannin. It will be better in a couple years and evolve gracefully for two decades, but it’s hard to resist right now. - Jeb Dunnuck

Wine Spectator, August 2011
Dense but very velvety with gorgeous ganache and espresso giving way to dark fig hoisin sauce and warm currant confiture. Lots of well-embedded charcoal and tobacco add cut and length to the hefty but driven finish... Dense but very velvety with gorgeous ganache and espresso giving way to dark fig hoisin sauce and warm currant confiture. Lots of well-embedded charcoal and tobacco add cut and length to the hefty but driven finish. Impressive. Grenache and Mourvèdre. Best from 2013 through 2024. 583 cases made. -JM

Inky-purple. Sexy aromas of dark berry compote Indian spices cocoa powder and flowers. Then creamy and dense in the mouth with powerful red and dark berry liqueur flavors accented by notes of spice cake and tangy... Inky-purple. Sexy aromas of dark berry compote Indian spices cocoa powder and flowers. Then creamy and dense in the mouth with powerful red and dark berry liqueur flavors accented by notes of spice cake and tangy minerals. Boasts lovely sweetness and clarity finishing with outstanding clarity and length. -JR

60% grenache 40% mourvedre. The grenache comes from Le Crau with the mourvedre sourced from the Bois Dauphin lieu-dit- not far from Beaucastel's vineyards. This cuvée is only made in excellent vintages and clearly shows... 60% grenache 40% mourvedre. The grenache comes from Le Crau with the mourvedre sourced from the Bois Dauphin lieu-dit- not far from Beaucastel's vineyards. This cuvée is only made in excellent vintages and clearly shows that 2009 meets that standard. Deeply colored and basically opaque the fruit aromas are precise and focused. The palate is subtle at first but the excitement level ratchets up as the palate showcases more complexity and layers. Not restrained or compact in profile it is the precision of flavors and the exquisite length that sets this wine apart. Incredibly exciting now and will remain so for 15-20 years.
