The biggest, richest 2009 of the three is undoubtedly the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Hautes Brusquières Cuvee Spéciale. The first words I wrote in my notes were “Rock Star,” and this awesome 2009 is overflowing with notions of black currants, licorice, roasted herbs and garrigue. Thick, rich, chewy and unctuous, it’s similar to the Vieilles Vignes, yet has another level of fat and texture. - Jeb Dunnuck

Showing an upfront and open profile with classic aromas of spice cabinet dried meats lavender licorice and mainly red fruits the 2009 Domaine de la Charbonnière Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Spéciale Les Hautes Brusquières 60% Grenache 39% Syrah and 1% Counoise aged in both small and large barrels is full-bodied and beautifully balanced on the palate. Pure textured and long this is more evolved and voluptuous than the Vieilles Vignes but should still have over a decade of longevity.

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, August 2011
A fleshy mouthfilling style with ample layers of plum fig anise and boysenberry preserves laced with bittersweet ganache and maduro tobacco on the finish. Very solid with latent grip. Best from 2012 through 2020. -JM

The aromas here are quite refined and focused if a bit reticent with notes of pepper and spice. The grenache here is not as fruity as in the winery's other cuvées but there is undeniable concentration at the back of the palate that bodes well for some short-term aging. Very complex with layered flavors the tannins are fine in texture and contribute to a structured finish. Give this wine a few years to open up and know it will last 12-15 years.
