Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jan/Feb 08
($65) Bright ruby. Vibrant red berry and cherry aromas are complemented by suave mineral and fresh floral nuances. Resembles a great pinot noir in its clarity and sexy raspberry expression, with silky tannins adding grip. Gains weight on the finish, picking up cherry and cassis preserve qualities, with no loss of energy or focus. I love this wine's suave texture. 94 points

The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape is superb, but it has to take a back seat to the 2006. Dark ruby with notes of underbrush, the seaweed wrapper nori, kirsch liqueur, and a bit of pepper and spice box, it is deep and broad, with outstanding concentration, moderately high tannin, and a nicely structured, pure mouthfeel. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2022. Laurent Charvin is carrying on as one of the most passionate, committed young vignerons of Chateauneuf du Pape and seems to go from strength to strength with his winemaking. I have recently been drinking my stocks of the 1998, and it seems to have hit that magical sweet spot in its evolution, although it has plenty of years to go. Parker 93
