Tasting Notes

91 points Wine Spectator: "Distinctive, elegant and structured, with plenty of power and good concentration to the sandalwood, dried cherry and plum confit flavors. Stylish, with a touch of cream and mocha on the finish. Will be interesting to see how this continues to develop. Drink now through 2007." (07/05) K&L's notes - One of the truly grand wines of the Langeudoc comes from Prieuré de St-Jean de Bébian. The Bebian vineyards lie in the foothills of the Cevennes and about 3 km from the town of Pezenas. The vineyards are planted to all 13 varietals found in Chateauneuf du Pape and consist of twenty-eight plots on arid, stony and south or southwest facing slopes. The vines here are almost all the result of selection massale, and maintain a fine pedigree- the syrah from Chave (Hermitage), the grenache from Chateau Rayas, and the mourvedre from Domaine Tempier in Bandol. Yields are ridiculously low at 25 hl/ha, more than half the authorized volume for the appellation. The 2001 Bebian is stunning, the result of a fantastic vintage as well as meticulous winemaking. This is not a wine for the timid, and it requires a minimum of 3-5 years of cellaring. Blackcurrant, licorice and tar are matched by fantastic minerality and length.
