CUVÉE DU VATICAN 2009 Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Southern Rhone Valley
Wine Advocate 90 Rating
From the bottle, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape has lived up to its pre-bottle form. Composed of 70% Grenache, 25% Syrah and the rest Mourvedre, Cinsault and other varietals, it exhibits a dark ruby/plum color along with plenty of juicy, succulent, cassis and kirsch liqueur notes intertwined with hints of licorice, incense and underbrush. This full-bodied, sexy, lush offering also reveals a note of nori, the seaweed wrap used in sushi restaurants. Consume this 2009 over the next 10-12 years.
