"Brilliant ruby. Spice- and mineral-accented red fruits and lavender on the intensely perfumed nose. Juicy, focused and pure, with excellent depth to its raspberry and cherry compote flavors. Puts on weight with air without any loss of vibrancy. The mineral element carries strongly through the finish, which features silky tannins and a strong red fruit quality. Extremely elegant Chateauneuf, balanced to age."

"Much more concentrated than the traditional cuvée, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape La Cuvee du Papet is a blend of 75% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre, from the Montalivet, La Crau, Palestor, Bois Dauphin lieux-dits, that was aged 85% in foudre and 15% in demi-muids and small barrels. Its deep purple color is followed by fabulous notes of black raspberry, currants, crushed rock and peppery herbs. This flows to a medium to full-bodied, structured and classically put together Châteauneuf that has fresh acidity and no shortage of tannin. Give this beauty 3-5 years in the cellar, and enjoy bottles through 2032. This staunchly traditional estate has produced a solid lineup in both 2012 and 2013. Looking at the 2012s, the Cuvee Papet is significant step up over the base cuvee, but both have no shortage of tannin and will benefit from short term cellaring. (JD)"
