  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    ($68-$105; 95% grenache and 5% mourvedre) Inky ruby. Stunningly fragrant bouquet of fresh red berries, cherry, minerals, Asian spices and fresh flowers; with its combination of power and purity, this smells like a Musigny. Deeply concentrated raspberry and cherry flavors are complicated by anise, cinnamon and floral pastille, with big but interwoven tannins adding grip. Finishes with outstanding silky persistence and a strong red berry character.

    Blend mainly Grenache (75%) and Syrah (15%). Lieux-dits: Montalivet, La Crau, Palestor. 30% destemmed, 85% in foudres. 12,000 bottles produced. pH 3.6 , RS 0.7g/l. Harvested 21-24 September. Mid ruby. A bit of animal fur on the nose -- too ripe? Extremely sweet and exaggerated. Porty. And some quite oily tannins, and fast fade. Not for me, though I'm sure it will appeal to some palates. Hot finish.

    Has lots of grip, with a very stony undertow carrying notes of wet pebble, sweet earth, licorice, coffee and fig. Pretty lavender and spice box hints flitter in the background as well. Dark and chewy on the finish for now, this needs time to settle into itself.

    Made from 75% Grenache and 15% Syrah, the 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape la Cuvee du Papet is deeper and richer than the classic cuvee. It exhibits gorgeous notes of sweet cherry and currant-like fruit, iron, garrigue and olive tapenade. This is followed by a full-bodied, structured, layered and concentrated Chateauneuf du Pape that has the balance and class to continue to evolve for another 10-15 years.

  • The estate, run by the esteemed Sabon family, can trace its history back to 1547. It includes 25 hectares of Chateauneuf du Pape and parcels in Le Pied de Baud, lieu-dit Monalivet, and les Gallimardes, as well as 15 hectares in Cotes du Rhone. Making wine is still a family affair, and three brothers - Jean-Claude, Pierre and Bernard - run the property, with Jean-Claude's son Thierry, the current winemaker, trained in the tradition of the domaine since day one. The wines are a majority Grenache, with Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault completing the blends. Mont-Olivet produces a red and white Chateuneuf du Pape, and a red and white Cotes du Rhone. The "Cuvee du Papet" is only bottled in the most exceptional vintages.
