The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape is a blockbuster. Deep ruby-colored and a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre and the rest other permitted varieties, it offers up a big, sweet bouquet of kirsch, blackberries, ground herbs, pepper and licorice. Full-bodied, textured and layered, it has terrific fruit intensity, no hard edges and a great finish. Drink this hedonistic beauty anytime over the coming decade or more. - Jeb Dunnuck

Sweet pure and incisive offering bright raspberry and lavender flavors and a deeper note of bitter cherry. Finishes with excellent focus and length leaving spice and floral notes behind. The superb 2007 Cuvee Centenaire which I had the chance to try again in December is a remarkably lithe and elegant wine for the vintage and is balanced to age--no small feat for a wine from this ripe often outsized year.
