Chateauneuf du Pape, 2006
Domaine de Barroche
Domaine la Barroche has been in the Barrot family since the 16th century, in fact even before that when the Popes came from Avignon and decided to spend their summer vacation in Châteauneuf. Fast forward several centuries and Julien the youngest member of the Barrot has joined his father to help produce some stunning and exciting wines that are receiving world-wide recognition.
The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Signature is the lightest of the four 2006 cuvees. It exhibits a dark ruby color, rich black cherry and black currant fruit, loads of fruit in the mid-palate, a medium-bodied, elegant mouthfeel, and light tannins. …

Chateauneuf du Pape, 2005
Chateau de la Font du Loup
The 2005 Chateau de la Font du Loup opened up delightfully on the 2nd night with loads of liquorice, tobacco and leather around a sweet fruit core. Tannins had melted away and left a deliciously full bodied wine that gives me hope for some good ageing potential.

Delas Domaine des Tourettes
The most famous of all the northern Rhône appellations, its 120 hectares produce tiny quantities of very long-lived reds. The vines were grown in Roman times, although local folklore claims their origins to be 600 years earlier. The wines are powerful, with a deep colour and firm tannins, and the potential to age for many decades.

Chateauneuf du Pape, 2000
Domaine de la Charbonniere Curvee Mourre des Perdrix
This wine is a good value for CNDP scoring highly with consumer reviews.
The nose expresses a mixture of savoury BBQ ribs with floral and dark cherry. Soft on the palate and well balanced especially since the alcohol content is at 15%. A focused finish with moderate length.

1999 Hermitage La Chapelle, 1999
P Jaboulet Ainee (includes leather effect gift box with silk liner- *Not the one illustrated)
This garnet 1999 La Chapelle gives off candied red berry and chocolate grilled aromas, enhanced by an evolving hint of truffle and fur. Its airy and concentrated palate develops red and dark berries, grilled hazelnut, spices, chocolate and Virginia tobacco notes. The 1999 Hermitage La Chapelle possesses a perfect acidity that brings a lingering finish with very delicate tannins. This is a superb vintage for a great Hermitage.
Legendary hill and history built up the mythical reputation of this Grand Cru. 1999 Hermitage La Chapelle is a Syrah single-grape wine of Paul Jaboulet-Aîné. This varietal is planted on poor and varied soils with a great diversity of the terroir, which is the origin of the complexity of this wine. …

Chateauneuf du Pape, 1993
Chateau de Beaucastel
89 points Average Cellar Tracker Score
A fairly strong wine from a weak vintage. This wine benefits from about 2 hours decanting to allow the nose to open up into an excellent example of aged CdP. Light in colour, and decent colour at the rim, no true bricking. Complex, with the black fruits playing lead and the usual Rhone notes playing a background note. Long, long finish. A solid wine.

Cotes du Rhone, 1969
Les Chais de Beaulieu
Côtes du Rhône is a huge appellation in the south of France encompassing 40,300 ha. Plenty of white and rosé wine is produced in Côtes du Rhône but there can be no doubt that red is king. Usually Grenache will dominate the blend (except in the north where Syrah is allowed to be top dog, but these wines are relatively few) and is normally partnered with Syrah and/or Mourvèdre but a further 18 varieties are also permitted! A cheerful example might be light, soft, fruity and easy-drinking, while the finest examples may be full-bodied, concentrated, intense, spicy and ageworthy. But what they all invariably have in common is a fabulous sense of place and lashings of personality and character. …

Chateauneuf du Pape, 1967
CLEARANCE OFFER | WAS £159 | NOW £109
The red wines of Chateauneuf-du-Pape blossom and reach their prime between their third and fifth year, but their potential for aging is over ten years and more according to the vintage and storage conditions. Their color changes from intense garnet-purple in the early years to ruby after some cellaring. These wines are structured, with powerful and complex aromas of ripe fruit, mushrooms, truffles, underbrush, spicy notes, and wild animals.
