Clos Des Papes Chateauneuf Du Pape 2009
Unquestionably a top-flight wine for Clos des Papes it is seductive and forward by the standards of this estate. Yields were a very small, largely because of their selection process and the drought. Beautifully pure displaying a deep ruby-plum color; black raspberry fruit, full body, nice acidity and sweet, velvety tannins. The 2009 is a beautiful success that should drink well for 15+ years.
