International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 106

($29; 85% grenache) Red-ruby, a bit less saturated than the Gigondas. Highly nuanced, liqueur-like nose combines roasted red and blue fruits, spices and coffee. Rich, fat and seamless, with near-exotic ripeness. With even more buffering extract, this seems less alcoholic than the Gigondas, despite being a half-degree higher, at 14.9%. Horizontal tannins really spread out over the palate. Philippe Guigal compared this wine in style to the house's 1990.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 145

Even better than the 1999, is the 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape. It reveals a deeper ruby/purple color along with sumptuous scents of creme de cassis, kirsch liqueur, licorice, and Provencal herbs. Boasting abundant glycerin, fuller body, additional black fruit characteristics, low acidity, ripe tannin, and a longer finish, it should be silky and accessible upon release.

Wine Spectator Author: Per-Henrik Mansson Issue: Web

Intriguing red, with some nice Chateauneuf complexity-wild herbs, leather, game. Modest fruit aromas in this mature Chateauneuf, which offers some wet earth and smoke aromas, but turns a bit tough on the finish. Medium-bodied, firm finish. 13,330 cases made.

Thrilling bouquet of red berries and slight leather. Tasted Earthy leathers, black berry, black peppers, smoke and very little tannins. Long finish of light smoke and dark berries.
