Brilliant ruby. Black raspberry, cherry compote, blood orange and Asian spices on the heady nose. Shows excellent depth and focus, with sweet dark berry and floral pastille flavors picking up a smoky nuance with aeration. Finishes sappy, sweet and very long, with silky tannins sneaking up on the back end.

Another knockout effort from this estate, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Safres is one of the top base cuvees in the vintage. Exhibiting fantastic aromas and flavors of black cherries, melted licorice, liquid flower and pepper, this medium to full-bodied, decadently styled 2011 has solid mid-palate depth, ultra-fine, sweet tannin and serious length on the finish. Drink it over the coming decade or more. Drink now-2023.

Offers a silky feel, with dark plum, blackberry and raspberry fruit notes stitched with Earl Grey tea and warm tobacco leaf notes. Long and refined through the finish, revealing an echo of ganache.
