Elisabeth Chambellan Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes Red Rhone Wine


88 Points – Wine Advocate, October 2011 "The 2009s are just slightly higher in alcohol and a bit denser, but exhibit essentially the same characteristics — kirsch, roasted Provencal herbs, loamy soil notes, pepper and spice. They are perfumed and display more density, but again never seem to lose any of the silkiness and velvety texture that make these wines so appealing. Both cuvees tend to be mostly Grenache, with some Syrah and Mourvedre, and are aged in equal parts wood foudres and cement tanks. Chateauneuf du Pape’s charismatic mayor continues to turn out Chateauneuf du Papes in an up-front, precocious, totally seductive style. They are not meant for old bones, but it would be hard to find anyone who doesn’t enjoy these fruit-driven, classic Provencal wines." -Robert Parker
