Bright ruby-red. Explosive, spice-accented aromas of red berry liqueur, incense and potpourri, with a deeper licorice quality in the background. Sweet, palate-staining red and dark berry flavors show an impressive interplay of richness and vivacity, picking up a smoky nuance with air. Closes with excellent clarity and lift, leaving lavender pastille and raspberry preserve notes behind.

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.
