    "The Burgundian-styled 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape is drinking at point today. Possessing beautiful notes of forest floor; truffles; spice; garrigue and sweet cherry and kirsch like fruit; this beauty has notable freshness and purity; medium to full-bodied richness; fine tannin and a layered; integrated texture that keeps you coming back to the glass. There's no need to delay gratification here and I'd enjoy bottles over the coming 4-5 years...95" WA 09/15. . "Full ruby color. Reticent but subtly complex aromas of maraschino cherry; plum; mocha; licorice and woodsmoke. Sweet; dense; very ripe and harmonious; with enticing flavors of maraschino cherry; dark chocolate and black licorice. This has lovely density and sweetness; as well as solid underlying structure. Wears its 14.5% alcohol gracefully. Finishes with thoroughly ripe; unaggressive tannins and excellent length. The '98 bottling is higher in acidity but less dense than the 2000; notes Paul Avril...90-93" Stephen Tanzer; Vinous Media
