TASTING NOTES

"The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes has a dark saturated ruby/purple color and a gorgeous nose of camphor, beef blood, roasted meat, pepper, lavender, spring flowers, and assorted red and black fruits such as kirsch and blackberry. The wine is very Provencal, extremely deep, full-bodied, and ideal for drinking over the next 12-15 years. The tannins are there, but they are nearly obliterated by the wine's concentration and richness." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #173

"Bright ruby. Spicy red berry and kirsch aromas are deepened by black olive and pungent flowers. Creamy raspberry and blackberry flavors are gently supported by supple minerality, picking up a spicy quality on the finish. This seems livelier than the non-V.V. bottling."
