International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 136

($119) Opaque ruby. Remarkably pure raspberry, boysenberry and floral aromas are eerily similar to a great Vosne-Romanee, with an exotic array of floral and incense qualities adding complexity. Uncanny for its combination of depth, sweetness and finesse, with suave minerality building exponentially through the finish. Flat-out stunning wine, and one of the greatest examples of young Chateauneuf I have ever tasted. I can't wait to actually drink it.

The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes was slightly off at the tasting, but I was able to taste it stateside, from a magnum no less. Stunning on all accounts, with awesome elegance and purity that's backed up by serious richness and depth, it gives up loads of roasted herbs, black licorice, charred meats and black fruits to go with a full-bodied, layered and silky profile on the palate. I've been lucky enough to have been through numerous bottles of this over the past few years, and it's just now starting to shed some of its baby fat, integrate its tannin (which are still present) and open up. Give it another year in the cellar and enjoy it over the following decade.

Wine Spectator Author: James Molesworth

Has a gorgeous mouthfeel, with intense, racy layers of boysenberry, raspberry ganache and fig that pump along velvety tannins while notes of Turkish coffee, mocha, fruitcake and chocolate fill in the background. The superlong finish flaunts power and depth, but stays pure and refined.

Open and decanted to 2hr, rebottle and in the fridge over night. Massive wine, explosion of berries and primary fruit. Virtually no secondary flavours. Probably wait a few years before trying again. Great wine.
