Product: VIED06
Vintage: 2006
Region: Chateauneuf-du-Pape
Bottle Size: 75cl
Grape Variety: Grenache Blend
Maturity: Ready to drink, but will improve
The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape reveals the vintage's peppery, earthy spiciness along with notes of forest floor, root vegetables, black cherries, and meat. This rich, medium to full-bodied effort possesses moderately soft tannin as well as good body, depth, and richness. It is a strong effort that should age nicely for 15+ years.
Score: 91 Robert Parker

Slightly firm, with juniper, sage and sandalwood hints framing dark plum, currant, coffee and mineral notes. The grippy finish has a cedar note in the background, with hints of black tea and tar. A gutsy style, with fresh acidity in reserve. Best from 2009 through 2028.
Score: 93 Wine Spectator

Our Tasting Note
Nose: Lovely nose of white pepper, black fruit, earthy and green grassy floor, just like you walk into forest.
Palate: Rich and full-bodied wine, dark cherries, plum, dried spices and white pepper. Good tannins and acidity structure give the wine excellent match with roast beef.
