Region: France--Rhone--Chateauneuf du Pape
Appellation: Chateauneuf du Pape
(2007 label shown)
Rated 93 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `Beautiful in the vintage, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape is a forward, perfumed example of the cuvee that has classic Pegau black fruits, tobacco leaf, pepper and leathery notes as well as medium to full-bodied richness and depth on the palate. Early-drinking by this estate's standards, there's nevertheless good mid-palate density and fine tannin. It should have 15 years or so of overall longevity. Drink now-2026.'
