Textbook, with singed cedar and tobacco leaf, lavender and bay notes weaving through flavors of date nut bread, dried currant and mulled cherry fruit. All of this is harnessed by pebbly tannins that leave a juicy, mouthwatering feel on the finish. A domaine that hasn't missed a beat in quite some time. Drink now through 2021. (JM, Web-2012)
Shinning for its elegance and purity, the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape is a beautiful, complex effort that offers lots of kirsch, black cherries, garrigue and olive, with a darker fruit slant with additional time in the glass. Medium to full-bodied, mature, yet still lively and fresh, it has fine tannin, impeccable balance and a great finish. Called a good, not great, year by Daniel Brunier, enjoy this classic Vieux Telegraphe anytime over the coming decade. (JD)
