2000 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Cuvée du Papet, Clos du Mont Olivet (J. Sabon)

Southern Rhône

$125.00 per Magnum (1.5L)


Out of Stock




"Saturated red-ruby. Wonderfully perfumed, highly complex aromas of raspberry, strawberry, redcurrant, blueberry, woodsmoke, violet and tree bark. Very sweet but very bright, with the perfumed quality carrying through on the palate. Highly concentrated but light on its feet, with intriguing herbal and tree bark notes from the mourvedre. (The mourvedre in 2000 was particularly ripe, deeply colored and structured, notes Thierry.) Juicy and very long, with extremely fine tannins. A very classy Châteauneuf with exhilarating aromatic character." Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

"The 2000 Châteauneuf du Pape La Cuvée du Papet (only made in 1998, 1990, and 1989) boasts a dense plum/purple color as well as a sweet bouquet of balsam wood, dried herbs, black cherries, currants, plums, and figs. Full-bodied, powerful, and tannic, it is not a Châteauneuf du Pape for those wanting immediate gratification as it requires 3-5 years of cellaring. I am not convinced it is a profound as the 1998 or 1990, but it is a top-flight effort that should age for two decades. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2020." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #145
