Clos des Papes Chateauneuf du Pape 2009


Top tear Chateauneuf from a very good vintage. Muscle bound full bodied style with every well ripened fruit note that you can conjure up.

Some people may think that it’s getting a little long in the tooth but not true, there’s plenty of gas in the tank, many of the world’s great palates are saying that you cellar this until 2035, but it is bloody delicious right now. Robert Parker gave it 97/100.
