International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 130

($79) Deep ruby. Pungent spice and floral notes accent bright red berry and cherry aromas. Deep, fleshy and sweet, with musky underbrush and garrigue adding complexity to the bright, intense red berry flavors. Very rich, in fact one of the more powerful wines of the vintage, with excellent depth and sweetness. The finish is chewy and strikingly long. Avril compares this one to 1995 in quality.

Bright ruby. Bloody, meaty, very sweet and jewelly nose - though much less rich and more transparent than the Etienne Gonnet. Still quite youthful. Dry finish. Very appetising.

One of the standouts in the vintage, Paul-Vincent's 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape is a gorgeous effort that does everything right. Both elegant and rich, with complex kirsch, garrigue, underbrush and saddle-leather aromas and flavors (among other things), this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, no hard edges and an overall seamless, elegant profile that makes it such a joy to drink. Upfront and ready to go, it will nevertheless continue to evolve gracefully for another decade.

Wine Spectator Author: James Molesworth

Amazingly refined, with a pure, silky current of raspberry ganache and cassis flavors that glides along supple tannins. Hints of mocha, mineral and garrigue check in on the long, pure finish. Has serious structure for the long haul. All about balance and finesse. 6,880 cases made.

96 points. Opened in honor of our new Pope, Francis I. This completely surpassed my high expectations. It was deep, profound, silky smooth and oozed Chateaneuf-du-Pape character, with warm grenache fruit framed by notes of lavender, thyme and spices. It was perfectly balanced, with ample acidity and a finish that went on forever. In a really good place right now, it was a terrific pairing with grilled lamb sirloin seasoned with garlic and Provencale herbs. Can't wait to crack open the 2007. Habemus Papam! (NOTE: The 2005 was Wine Spectator's Wine of the Year.)

The wine was gentle but stern. This initial taste was velvety with a pepper backend with above average tannins. The cedar, cassis and mild strawberry kicked it for me.
