A big step up over the classic cuvee, the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Quet is a blockbuster blend of 65% Grenache and 35% Mourvèdre that spent 14 months in tank and foudre. A big, rich, unctuous and concentrated effort, it offers lots of black raspberry, currants, olive paste and a kiss of graphite on the nose. Needing time in the glass to show at its best, enjoy it anytime over the coming decade. (JD)
Very rich and polished, with layers of black Mission fig, bittersweet ganache, hoisin sauce, melted black licorice, Black Forest cake and currant confiture, all stretched over ample but fine-grained tannins. Really long, with ample grip for the vintage. Grenache and Mourvèdre. Best from 2010 through 2028. (JM)
Dark red. Pungent, spicy scents of red berry liqueur and kirsch, along with deeper mocha and licorice qualities. Energetic and gently sweet, with deep red and dark berry flavors underscored by zesty minerals and firmed by dusty tannins. Gains weight and power with air, finishing spicy and broad, with excellent sappy cling and a strong echo of dark fruit. I'd let this one rest for a few years. (JR)
