International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 155

Bright ruby. A heady bouquet displays fresh red berries, sandalwood, dried flowers and a hint of baking spices. Creamy in texture, with lively acidity lifting sweet red and dark berry and candied rose flavors. Becomes sappier with air and finishes with very good clarity and lingering spiciness. Avril thinks this wine will surprise people with its ability to age.

Vincent Avril fashioned one of the finest 2008 Chateauneuf du Papes of the appellation. Made from a classic blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah and the rest an assortment of permitted varietals, it exhibits a dark color as well as a bouquet of lavender, kirsch, licorice, loamy balsamic notes and hints of roasted meats and herbs. Evolved by this estate's standards, it is an elegant effort with surprising density and richness. I actually prefer it to the 2005 (which was The Wine Spectator's Wine of the Year).

Wine Spectator Author: James Molesworth

Dark, inviting and very alluring, with captivating black tea, charred mesquite and kirsch aromas and flavors allied to a remarkably silky mouthfeel. Superlong, with mineral, violet, pepper and additional crushed cherry and plum fruit notes all gliding through the finish. Best from 2011 through 2027. 5,500 cases made.

Outstanding for the vintage. Classic aromas of herbs de provence, currants, cassis, scorched earth and forest floor. Great lenght, silky tannins! The wine's finish is very persistent and easily 45 seconds.
