Dark ruby. Pungent, expansive aromas of black and blue fruits, licorice, incense and violet, with a zesty spicy overtone. Shows outstanding depth and power, with potent dark fruit compote flavors and an enlivening jolt of minerality adding lift and bite. Closes sweet, sappy and extremely long, leaving sexy floral pastille and spicecake notes behind. Fans of Bonneau's wines need to start hoarding their nickels and Benjamins for this one.

The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve des Celestins might be the wine of the vintage and got a big 'Wowâ?� in the notebook. Thrillingly perfumed, with kirsch, currants, herbs de Provence, dried meats and spice-like aromas and flavors, it is an absolute knockout on the nose. This is all backed up by full-bodied richness in the mouth, and it possesses terrific mid-palate depth, layers of sweet tannin and a finish that pumps out plenty of sweet fruit. I don't know when it will be bottled, but certainly, I was blown away by the wine.
