International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 142

($80; 100% grenache from vines over 100 years of age in the Crau and Pignan climats Bright red. Rich cherry and blackberry aromas are complemented by black cardamom, fruitcake and minerals. Deeply concentrated, powerful dark berry flavors with slow-building smokiness. The minerals repeat on the finish, which is broad, chewy and impressively long. This baby needs a lot of cellar time. (Eric Solomon Selections, Charlotte, NC)

Pretty volatile but masses of pleasurable super-ripe liquorice flavoured fruit. A strong statement of a wine this which promises lots of alcohol and pleasure. Slightly hot finish but not forced. All Grenache.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 179

A candidate for wine of the vintage is the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Grenaches de Pierre. The essence of kirsch liqueur in that Rayas/Chateau Lafleur style, this wine has great intensity, full-bodied power, a seamless, silky integration of acidity and tannin, and a massive but light to the touch mouthfeel, this stunningly brilliant wine tastes like the Musigny of Chateauneuf du Pape.
