Recent vintages have put this estate in the very top league of Châteauneuf-du-Pape producers, as commentators such as Robert Parker are quick to remark. Also of interest is the fine Côtes du Rhône, made with the same care and attention to detail, and selling for an eminently affordable price.

Wine AdvocateThe stunning 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape (14.5% alcohol) boasts a dark ruby/purple color as well as a super bouquet of sweet plums, figs, kirsch liqueur, and pepper. Layered, heady, and full-bodied, this hedonistic and intellectual turn-on can be drunk now as well as over the next 12-15 years.

Wine SpectatorMineral, wet earth, leather and smoke aromas, but also an earthy edge that hints at a traditional wine. Some intensity, this medium-bodied red turns a bit chewy due to the firm tannins on the finish. Best from 2004 through 2010. 2,500 cases made.
