This captures terrific ripeness intensity and density with stunning mouthfeel as layer upon layer of fig sauce braised plum cassis cherry eau de vie and pastis glide along together with notes of spice ganache and graphite hanging in reserve. The very long finish has cut and precision despite its weight. Should age effortlessly. Best from 2014 through 2035. 2300 cases made. -JM

The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape from the domaine has turned out much better than I predicted last year. A blend of 70% Grenache and the rest Syrah, Counoise, Mourvedre and Cinsault from the very northern sectors of Chateauneuf du Pape, on terraces just north of Chateau Cabrieres and Domaine Mas de Boislauzon, this deep purple wine has a gorgeous nose of fresh blueberries and kirsch, with almost meaty, chewy richness, loads of glycerin, full body, stunning concentration and purity. It was bottled in May and should have 15 or more years of aging potential. - Robert Parker

Finishes sweet and seamless with the blackberry and floral notes repeating.
