Very juicy, with a racy underpinning to the layers of raspberry ganache, blackberry and fig compote. Shows plenty of sweet spice, with hints of melted licorice, shiso leaf and tobacco. There’s also latent grip on the rather toasty finish. Drink now through 2023.

Bright red. Potent raspberry and candied cherry aromas, with vivid mineral and floral qualities adding energy; this has the elegant bouquet of a Burgundy. Silky and sweet, with graceful strawberry and raspberry flavors, medium weight and a long, sappy finish. In the modern school but in no way overblown.

Vivid red. Bright raspberry and cherry-vanilla aromas are complicated by smoky minerals, rose and lavender. Deeper black raspberry and cola on the palate, with tangy minerals adding spine and cut. Suave, finely focused and delicious now but balanced to age.

The beautifully precise 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape offers a gorgeous concoction of sweet cherry, plum, and currant fruit intermixed with notions of spring flowers, crushed rocks, and Provencal herbs, sweet tannin, and a medium to full-bodied, lush, long finish. It will be drinkable early, but because of its superb equilibrium, it should last for 12–15 years.

The earthy, Provencal, dark plum/ruby-colored 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape displays the vintage’s spicy side, with notes of new saddle leather, garrigue, licorice, pepper, and plenty of red currant and sweet cherry fruit. It is very good to excellent, and best drunk over the next decade. Both wines are made from 60-year-old 100% Grenache vines grown in a combination of both clay and sandy soils. Both are aged 18 months in wooden cuves prior to bottling.
