The 2009 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge has a classic Cristia nose and palate, quite chewy at present with excellent Grenache (90% of the blend), big and rich, sweet fruit and no oak so this is all about the fruit. Very full, long, classic. Drink it over the next five to eight years.

"Plenty of forest floor, sweet kirsch liqueur and raspberries, medium to full-body and a luxurious mouthfeel with silky tannins and a long, heady finish. This beauty is ideal for drinking over its first decade of life." 90-92/100
