A blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 10% Mourvèdre, from vines averaging 55-years in age, the 2009 Domaine La Roquette Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a perfumed, elegant red that delivers loads of black cherry... A blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 10% Mourvèdre, from vines averaging 55-years in age, the 2009 Domaine La Roquette Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a perfumed, elegant red that delivers loads of black cherry, lavender, wild herbs, and olive on the nose. Medium to full-bodied in the mouth, it has solid ripeness, a round, fleshy texture, good acidity, and fine tannin that provides the focus on the finish. Certainly delicious now, it can also be cellared for 8-10 years.

Vivid ruby. Dark berries, potpourri and pungent herbs on the highly perfumed nose. Juicy, sweet and vibrant, with impressive clarity to its black raspberry and lavender pastille flavors. Picks up a smoky note with air... Vivid ruby. Dark berries, potpourri and pungent herbs on the highly perfumed nose. Juicy, sweet and vibrant, with impressive clarity to its black raspberry and lavender pastille flavors. Picks up a smoky note with air and finishes with outstanding energy, focus and length. I also had the chance to re-taste the 2008 bottling and it is still a bit bound up, but aeration bring out sweet dark berry fruit and spices. It looks to be on a slow aging curve for the vintage. --- Josh Raynolds

A blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape reveals a Burgundian-like delicacy with notes of spring flowers, sweet cherries, black currants, forest floor and spice.

Medium to full-bodied, elegant, pure and well-balanced, it should drink nicely for 10-12 years.

Ruby core with a rosy pink rim. The subtle but high-toned nose leads with raspberry, anise, and dried herb aromas along with a touch of orange rind and black cherry. Very soft and round, with flavors of wild strawberry... Ruby core with a rosy pink rim. The subtle but high-toned nose leads with raspberry, anise, and dried herb aromas along with a touch of orange rind and black cherry. Very soft and round, with flavors of wild strawberry, rose petal, and raspberry supported by cocoa flavored, powdery tannins with a strong underlying mineral streak. Very open and approachable now, this should be consumed over the next 3-5 years.
