Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, October 2011
Ripe and fleshy but old-school with tobacco brick dust and cocoa notes framing the core of cassis black cherry and linzer torte. There's a muscular edge on the finish where an iron note lingers. Best from 2012 through... Ripe and fleshy but old-school with tobacco brick dust and cocoa notes framing the core of cassis black cherry and linzer torte.

Readers looking for a seductive fix made from mostly Grenache (98% ) and the rest Cinsault and Clairette (because it's a field blend) should check out the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape A La Gloire de Mon Grandpere.

Readers looking for a seductive fix made from mostly Grenache (98% ) and the rest Cinsault and Clairette (because it's a field blend) should check out the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape A La Gloire de Mon Grandpere. Produced from 70- to 100-year vines this is a decadent Grenache with huge amounts of opulent kirsch liqueur notes a lusty full-bodied mouthfeel plenty of glycerin and I am sure 15+% alcohol.

100% grenache aged in foudres and demi-muids from sites with sandy soil. Darkly colored at the core the rim fades to a pale pink. This cuvée is more structured when compared to the classic cuvée. Medium bodied in weight... 100% grenache aged in foudres and demi-muids from sites with sandy soil. Darkly colored at the core the rim fades to a pale pink. This cuvée is more structured when compared to the classic cuvée. Medium bodied in weight there is just enough fruit to counterbalance the spicy and textured tannins that contribute to a firm finish.
