Description

The Domaine La Roquete Châteauneuf du Pape exhibits good sweet kirsch liqueur notes intermixed with some liquorice, spring flowers, and earth. Medium-bodied and elegant with sweet tannin, it should drink well for a decade or more. At the request of Daniel Brunier, all of the estates where he produces wines have been grouped together. There are some changes, several of which I noted last year. The second wine of Vieux Telegraphe has changed its name from Vieux Mas des Papes to Telegramme, and of course there is a major effort underway by Brunier to dramatically increase the quality of La Roquete with the introduction of a new luxury cuvee of about 4,000 bottles made from 100% Grenache from 70-year-old vines planted in a sector of Châteauneuf du Pape known as Les Pialons.
