The 2009 Domaine de la Solitude (Lançon Père et Fils) Châteauneuf-du-Pape Réserve Secrète is a blend of 60% Syrah and 40% Grenache all from the sandy soils around the estate (that would be La Crau) and aged in 65% new oak. Showing an overall elegant yet powerful profile the wine yields beautiful aromas of decadent cassis and blackberry fruits white chocolate spice cabinet and roasted meats on the nose. This is followed by a full-bodied classy wine that carries fine tannin solid focus a fleshy round texture and a very long finish. It should benefit from 2-4 years in the cellar and have upwards of 15 years of longevity.

The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Secrete (65% tank-aged Grenache and 35% small oak-aged Syrah) boasts a dense ruby/purple color (nearly as dark as the Barberini) in addition to abundant blackberry cassis kirsch and spice box characteristics intermixed with hints of oak and forest floor. This rich full-bodied opulent wine is more developed and evolved than either the 2007 or 2005 were at a similar stage. It is a brilliant Chateauneuf du Pape meant to evolve over 15 years. 94+
