Tasting Notes

94 points Robert Parker: "An offering for long-term aging is the Cuvee des Generations. This full-throttle Chateauneuf du Pape, made in a modern barrique-aged style, retains plenty of the typicity of old vine Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre. Truly great stuff, the 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Generations exhibits notes of licorice, creme de cassis, vanilla, and espresso. Closed, but powerful and concentrated, it reveals similar flavors of cassis liqueur intermixed with kirsch, truffles, camphor, and spice box. A wine of formidable intensity and tannin, it will be drinkable between 2007-2025." (02/03) According to the Wine Spectator: "Sleek, elegant, modern-styled red, with fancy oak giving it lots of smoke, pepper, violet and other floral aromas. With time, it might settle down, as the rough tannins need to be tamed in this medium-bodied, pitch-black, extracted Châteauneuf. Best from 2004 through 2010. 750 cases made." (11/02)
