  • This was surprisingly quite weak, a bit flabby, tired. Not faulty, but bad storage?

  • The energy and shape of this wine is pretty good, and belies its over the top %alc. But not my type of wine.

  • Concentré et fin, malgré le millésime souvent puissant et musclé, ce Clos des Papes 2006 nous a emballé par sa richesse et sa pureté. Fruits rouges compotés et acidulés, Hleurs sauvages, herbes du sud, pierres chaudes pour le nez, et en bouche, une belle tension saline en finale, salivante, rafraichissante, l'alcool n'agresse pas... Un beau classique de l'appellation a ce stade.
    Et Il a devant lui de belles années....

  • An integrated and balanced bottle. Dark fruit, earth and herbs, spicy. Balanced with food. Nothing over the top, does not show its alcohol. At the very end of the bottle a few raisiny notes emerged, but this was excellent and with age might well improve.

  • 2006 cdp's

    1 - Clos des Papes, deftly balanced delicious ripe fruit w/ characteristic clos des papes aromatic complexities and finish. 95pts

    2 - Giraud Grenache de Pierre, more coffee tones, austere at first with slight carbonation then opened up to reveal nice dark fruit profile. 93pts

    3 - Les Cailloux, similar fruit profile and aromatics as clos des papes but much less fruit for a much lower price, nice qpr. 92pts

    4 - Ch de Beaucastel, pretty uninspiring compared to others - definitely the worst wine of the bunch. not a bad wine, but just nothing special. lack of fruit/complexity. 90pts
