    ($45; a blend of 65% grenache, 20% mourvedre and 15% syrah) Dark red. Soil-inflected aromas of gunflint, hot rocks, woodsmoke and plum. Saline, tactile and concentrated, with terrific density of texture leavened by strong but harmonious acidity. Tart berry notes, in conjunction with the wine's rocky, minerally quality, accentuate the impression of spine. This is rigorous today, but also seamless and suave. Very firm, building finish goes on and on.

    Lovely, elegant and refined, showing mocha, plum, smoke and grilled meat aromas. Clean finish. Round, it will get more so with short-term cellaring.

    The 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape, an unfined/unfiltered blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, and 15% Syrah, is more structured than the open-knit 2000 or muscular 1998. The 2001 is a dense, archetypical effort offering a classic bouquet of Provencal herbs intermixed with loamy soil, Asian spice, kirsch liqueur, cedar, and tobacco aromas. Sweet, peppery black cherry jam-like flavors emerge in the mouth. Dense, full-bodied, rich, and spicy, its tannic structure suggests 1-2 years of cellaring is warranted.

    Auction bottle held 1 year, decanted. Red and tile color. Black pepper, shaved roasted chocolate on the nose. Medium bodied, mouth-watering acidity, and pleasantly engaging finish, running a touch hot.
