Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 96

Also brilliant, the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reserve is full-bodied and concentrated, with classic Pegau wildness, beef blood, saddle leather and garrigue all emerging from the glass. Slightly lighter in color and weight when compared to the 2003, it's showing some maturity and can be consumed anytime, but will without a doubt continue to evolve gracefully for another decade or more.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

($50) Saturated deep red. Superripe, utterly captivating aromas of raspberry liqueur, leather, chocolate, coffee bean, pepper, garrique, black olive and licorice. Huge and voluminous, with superripe, palate-saturating flavors of candied, liqueur-like red fruits, game, pepper and wild herbs, with a complicating saline quality. Exotic and larger than life. Wonderfully fat and full on the sweet, lush aftertaste. Perhaps a bit less tarry and more fruit-driven than the 2000. This will fill your entire mouth and then some.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

Super, with ripe plum and blackberry fruit supported by notes of briar, brick dust, tar and bacony smoke. Rich yet racy, with a powerful yet perfumy fruit- and dried herb-driven finish. Shows a lot now, but built for the long haul. 5,500 cases made.

Wine Varietal: Rhone Blend

"Rhone blends" are typically red wines comprised of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre in varying proportions. However, the red blends may also include any of the traditional varieties grown in the Rhone Valley such as the 14 allowed in the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation. There are also Rhone blend roses which use the same varieties as their red counterparts. White Rhone blends are typically some combination of Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier, Grenache blanc, and lesser varieties.
