2006 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine du Clos des Papes

Deep in hue, nearing opaque, the nose boasts a terrific compote of ripe, black fruits, dark cherry and sweet raspberry as well as garrigue and spice scents. A very finely balanced, yet powerful châteauneuf, which seems to amply reveal the style of the vintage. This is exceptional, with such gentle persistence and pleasing notes of spicy complexity. Very ripe fruit, and nothing leaden-footed here. One cannot foresee this ever showing in anything other than a harmonious manner.
