 M Chapoutier Barbe Rac Chateauneuf-du-pape 2008

Vinous - 91/100
"Ruby-red. Bright, high-pitched red and dark berries on the nose, with a complex array of floral and spice qualities gaining strength with air. Lively, focused and alluringly sweet, with deep but spirited raspberry and cherry flavors and a nervy mineral spine. The finish leaves spice and floral notes behind, along with a hint of rose pastille."
Jancis Robinson - 18
"" Dark crimson. Really round and rich and spicy/herby. Pretty damned subtle. Very much more perfumed, subtle and gentle than original vintages. Lots of tannin on the finish. Pretty impressive! " "
