89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2002

($27; bottled two weeks before my visit) Red-ruby. Aromas of pruneau, licorice and spicecake, with a suggestion of caramel. Sweet and supple; voluminous and aromatic. But less complex in the middle palate than the Gigondas. Finishes with substantial, slightly tarry tannins that seem a tad dry after the bottling.

WINE SPECTATOR SURPRISE
03/30/2005
by CanonMJ
This wine was rated the number one wine of 2002 or 2003 by wine spectator magazine. It is certainly a very good wine, but I cannot justify it as being THE wine of the year. I agree with Mr. Tanzer's rating...89-90. I don't know what the current price of this wine is...it was selling for 30 dollars a bottle. I think this is a fair price, but not more!

About Chateauneuf du Pape

The Rhone's Chateauneuf du Pape has been one of the hottest categories of the new millennium in the American market, thanks in equal part to the nearly candied ripeness and full-bodied, chewy texture of these wines and to an unprecedented string of four consecutive very good to outstanding vintages between 1998 and 2001.
