International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 112

($50) Saturated deep red. Superripe, utterly captivating aromas of raspberry liqueur, leather, chocolate, coffee bean, pepper, garrique, black olive and licorice. Huge and voluminous, with superripe, palate-saturating flavors of candied, liqueur-like red fruits, game, pepper and wild herbs, with a complicating saline quality. Exotic and larger than life. Wonderfully fat and full on the sweet, lush aftertaste. Perhaps a bit less tarry and more fruit-driven than the 2000. This will fill your entire mouth and then some. (Dan Kravitz/Hand-Picked Selections, Warrenton, VA; J&R Selections, Mt. Pleasant, MI; Martine's Wines, Novato, CA)

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 151

The 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee is a prodigious effort. The dark plum/ruby/garnet color is followed by a spectacular smorgasbord of aromas, including roasted meats, lavender, ground pepper, and thick, sweet blackberry and brandy-macerated cherries. Full-bodied, dense, and chewy, it has high levels of tannin, a huge finish, and a monster upside. Although less voluptuous than the 2000, the 2001 looks to be potentially the longest-lived and finest Cuvee Reservee since the wonderful duo of 1989 and 1990, both of which are aging splendidly.

Wine Spectator

Super, with ripe plum and blackberry fruit supported by notes of briar, brick dust, tar and bacony smoke. Rich yet racy, with a powerful yet perfumy fruit- and dried herb-driven finish. Shows a lot now, but built for the long haul. 5,500 cases made.
