Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, October 2007
The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (4,000 bottles produced) is a blend of 50% old vine Grenache and a few other grapes aged in tank, and 50% aged in barrel. It achieved 16.2% natural alcohol. The result is a full-bodied wine with fabulous concentration, a saturated dark ruby/plum color, and an ethereal black raspberry, blackberry, and blueberry-scented bouquet with notions of truffles and flowers in the background. It is exceptionally opulent, full-bodied, and deep with silky tannins and low acidity. Give it 2-3 years of bottle age, and drink it over the following two decades. 92-95 points

Stephen Tanzer's Int'l Wine Cellar, Jan/Feb 2008
Deep red. Sexy, pinot-like red fruits and minerals on the nose, with a suave floral overtone. Lush raspberry and cherry preserve flavors are enlivened by zesty minerality and framed by silky tannins, picking up more wild garrigue and tobacco qualities on the finish. For all its flavor impact, this is remarkably light, even delicate, with superb balance and precision. 95-97 points
