Clos du Mont-Olivet Châteauneuf du Pape la Cuvée du Papet 2005
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
|Brand||Clos du Mont-Olivet|
The luxury cuvee of old vines that is virtually all Grenache.
Has lots of grip, with a very stony undertow carrying notes of wet pebble, sweet earth, licorice, coffee and fig. Pretty lavender and spice box hints flitter in the background as well. Dark and chewy on the finish for now, this needs time to settle into itself. Best from 2009 through 2030. 1,000 cases made
