A wine that always does it for me, the 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de La Reine des Bois is open for business and has a sexy, voluptuous texture to go with classic Mordoree spice, licorice, graphite and black cherry and currant-styled fruit. Beautifully complex, full-bodied and with brilliant purity of fruit, drink it over the coming 3-5 years. (JD)
A sensational Châteauneuf-du-Pape that's sleek, yet rich and thick. Maintains elegance thanks to the succulent black and red fruit, which gives it a freshness to balance the ripe flavors and generous, sweet oak aromas accented by tobacco notes. Full-bodied and tempting now, but will improve as the tannins soften. (PM)
Full deep ruby. Strongly oaky aromas of cassis, blackberry, violet, bitter chocolate and leather. Impressively deep and stuffed with fruit; but the inky, chocolatey, licorice-tinged flavors and powerful oakiness suggest that this wine will need a good decade to harmonize. Finishes with major oak tannins and outstanding persistence. This may already be shutting down. 92(+?) points. (ST)
Lovely development, all herbs and garrigue on the nose. Still pretty dry on the end though. Vibrant. Really quite dramatic. But it will always be dry on the end, I fear.
