Clos des Papes Chateauneuf du Pape 2011, 750ml (WA96) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Clos des Papes Chateauneuf du Pape

750ml

Vintage: 2011
Region: France--Rhone--Chateauneuf du Pape
Appellation: Chateauneuf du Pape

WA96
(2009 shown)

Rated 96 points by the Wine Advocate: "One of the stars of the vintage and coming from absurdly low yields of 18 hectoliters per hectare, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape is a full-bodied, seamless effort that exhibits copious kirsch, ground pepper, dried flowers and underbrush as well as incredibly fine tannin, great mid-palate concentration and ample length on the finish. Relatively forward by this estate`s standards, it will be approachable at an earlier age than normal. Nevertheless, it will have 20+ years of evolution and is an awesome effort in the vintage. Drink 2015-2030.?" -- Jeb Dunnuck in Issue #209 of the Wine Advocate.

More Information about this producer: "One of the benchmark estates, Clos des Papes covers close to 90 acres in Chateauneuf du Pape and is run by the incredibly talented Paul-Vincent Avril. Favoring a single cuvee, his Chateauneuf du Pape is always a blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre 10% Syrah and the rest a mix of Vaccarese, Counoise and Muscardin. No new oak is used in the winery and all new barrels and foudre see three vintages of his non-vintage Le Petit Vin d`Avril before being used for his grand vin. Starting out, the two non-vintage Le Petit Vin d`Avril are both beautifully made (the vines are farmed just like Paul-Vincent Chateauneuf du Pape terroirs and the yields are miniscule) and well worth checking out."
