2009 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Deus Ex Machina, Clos St. Jean
"The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Deus-Ex Machina may turn out to be the “wine of the vintage” if it’s not eclipsed by its siblings. Composed of 60% tank-aged Grenache and 40% demi-muid-aged Mourvedre, it comes from old vines in La Crau (60- to 100-year-old vines). It exhibits a dense purple color as well as notes of tree bark, roasted porcini mushrooms, beef blood, grilled Provencal herbs, steak tartare, licorice, blackberries and kirsch. The perfume nearly overloads the olfactory senses. In the mouth, this modern day legend in the making (which I could also say about the 2003, 2005, 2006 and 2007) is massive, backward and full-bodied..." Robert Parker, 96-98+ points.
