The only red presented, the 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Origines (50% Grenache 30% Mourvedre and 20% Syrah aged half in concrete and half in barrique) possesses a dark ruby color to go with smoky, toasty aromas and flavors of blackberry, licorice and wood spice to go with a medium-bodied, fresh and focused feel on the palate. Classic 2004 with its mid-weight aromas and flavors, yet excellent length and building richness, it should drink nicely through 2019. (JD)
Deep ruby. Explosively aromatic nose combines raspberry, black cherry and a hint of vanilla accented by suave oak spice. Lush, supple and very sweet, with deep red berry flavors verging on candied. Finishes on a creamy note of cherry-vanilla, with molten tannins and very good length. An utterly delicious and decidedly modern-style wine, with lots of oak but also the fruit to handle it. (JR)
Extremely dark and dense. Great sap and lusciousness. Rich intensity -- definite, if slightly oaky, glamour! Neat and extremely carefully made. Very tight and rich with lots of sweetness but more focus than most Châteauneuf-du-Pape . Definitely modernist and the finish fades a little which is why I suggest drinking it reasonably young. 18/20 points.
