Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, June 2012
A ripe, solid version, with mulled dark currant and fig fruit wrapped with toasted anise, ganache and pastis notes. There's a racy feel on the finish, with a twinge of chalk adding length. Best from 2013 through 2023. -JM

An expressive, smoky bouquet evokes blackberry and cherry-vanilla, supported by complicating notes of cola, allspice and woodsmoke. Sappy, sweet dark fruit flavors show a refreshingly bitter quality that buffers the sweetness. The vanilla note repeats on the gently tannic finish, which features a note of tangy berry skin

All from broken limestone soils, the 2009 Ogier Caves des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Terroir Eclats Calcaires is darker in color than the Galets Roules and shows an earthy, smoky, mineral-driven profile (not far from the Galets Roules in character) with ripe black cherry and pit styled fruits. The minerality is what sets it apart, and this medium-bodied Châteauneuf-du-Pape has good acidity, a concentrated mid-palate, and a dry finish.
