Vintages 2009

Wine Advocate #204 - Dec 2012

Score : (90-92)

The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape appears to be a beautiful wine, although perhaps not at the level of the 2007 or 2010 (which will not be released for another two years). The elegant, medium to full-bodied 2009 displays lots of cedary, berry fruit intermixed with notes of garrigue, Christmas fruitcake, kirsch and spice. It is best consumed in its first decade of life. Robert Parker.


Score : 17,5/20

Un des meilleurs assemblages jamais produits par la maison, proposé avec un recul bienvenu, notes parfaites de menthol pour équilibrer la richesse en alcool, finale sur le musc de parfumerie, sensations tactiles magnifiques



Score : 14/20

Quel plaisir procuré par les arômes de ce Chateauneuf du Pape. Bigarreau, cassis, mûre font allégeance à la pivoine, au poivre de Sarawak et à la régisse. La bouche franche réunit tous les critères de garde autour d'un palais fruité et épicé aux tanins tendres.
