The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes comes primarily from two sectors of Chateauneuf du Pape La Crau and Mont Olivet. It is a dense ruby/purple color with plenty of garrigue lavender black currant black cherry sandy loamy soil notes along with underbrush. A quintessential wine of Provence - full-bodied powerful yet at the same time elegant and very complex - it can be drunk over the next 15+ years.

Exotic spice and potpourri scents accent intense red and dark berries on the seductively perfumed nose. Sweet expansive and energetic on the palate offering an array of berry and floral flavors and silky texture. Becomes spicier with air and finishes with outstanding energy clarity and cling. I find this delicious wine surprisingly approachable right now.
