Totally brilliant and up there with the best of the vintage the 2009 Domaine Tour Saint-Michel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Feminessence is a 100% barrels aged (some new) partially destemmed blend of 75% Grenache and 25% Syrah. Modern styled and showing plenty of classy oak yet with awesome purity of fruit and no shortage of finesse this delivers gorgeous aromas of sweet garrigue crushed flowers graphite creamy licorice and white chocolate that's supported by crème de cassis and raspberry styled aromas on the nose. This leads to a medium to full-bodied gorgeously textured yet elegant Châteauneuf-du-Pape that's loaded with sweet fruit has fantastic freshness and a very long borderline hedonistic finish. I'm a huge fan and this beauty should drink well for 10-15 years.

The sensational 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Feminessance which is 75% Grenache and 25% Syrah aged in small oak has the densest opaque color of all three cuvees. This wine has fabulous fruit concentration and comes across as a wonderful segue way between the traditional and the modern styles of Chateauneuf du Pape. Full-bodied pure and certainly a star of the vintage this wine can be drunk now or cellared for up to 12-15+ years. It is a brilliant achievement in 2009 and I kept going back to the glass for another whiff of the kirsch and black raspberry notes.

Gradually more high-toned red fruit and crushed rock aromas develop. The palate mirrors the nose with a rich creaminess loads of expansive black and red fruit flavors and a long supple finish. A beautiful balance of modern and classical with lots of ripe notes underscored by minerality red fruits and freshness. This is a pleasure to drink now but will also reward additional time in bottle.
