The estate's luxury cuvee the deep ruby/plum-colored 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Lucile Avril is composed of 85% Grenache and the rest mostly Mourvedre with a touch of Syrah all aged in cement. Impressively rich and much in character with not only the vintage but its less expensive sibling the traditional cuvee it is a concentrated powerful opulent sexy wine boasting a huge perfume of black currants caramelized herbs sweet kirsch saddle leather and spice box. This voluptuously textured multidimensional offering displays fabulous fruit extract and a rich long pure finish that goes on and on. Drink this beauty now and over the next 10-12 years. It is close in quality to the estate's riveting 2007 Lucile Avril.

Medium-full color saturation in the glass with brick edges. Amazing aromatics of juicy red berry licorice and pepper spice will make your mouth water! Black raspberry liquor meets up with new leather and cracked black... Medium-full color saturation in the glass with brick edges. Amazing aromatics of juicy red berry licorice and pepper spice will make your mouth water! Black raspberry liquor meets up with new leather and cracked black pepper on the palate entry which leads into a full and coating mid-palate with an impressive oak integration on the back end. This wine will keep you warm on a chilly evening and is perfect to serve with the heartiest of meat fare. Bravo!
