The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve which was made from frighteningly low yields has a whopping 16.5% alcohol compared to the 2010's 16.4 yet it is not even noticeable given the luxurious concentration and extraordinary depth and richness this wine possesses. A phenomenal example of opulence super concentration old vine viticulture and impeccable winemaking this black/blue/purple wine displays notes of spring flowers graphite blueberries blackberries licorice and some charcoal notes even though it is aged totally in old wood foudres. Given its opulence it can be drunk relatively early on but this wine will keep for15-20 years based on how slowly vintages such as 1999 and 2000 are aging.
