Chateauneuf du Pape, Clos Du Mont Olivet 2009
"Another wine that shows the vintage characteristics beautifully, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape gives up loads of kirsch, sweet blackberries, garrigue and peppery herbs in its full-bodied, rich, concentrated and structured personality. There’s ample tannin here, so give it another year or two in the cellar.
I’m not sure if this estate produces one of the longest-lived Chateauneuf du Papes out there, or if it just seems that way due to the fact that they have such a fantastic library of old wines and I’m able to taste more of them! Nevertheless, Clos du Mont Olivet, which is now run by Thierry Sabon, is a brilliant estate that fashions traditional, age-worthy Chateauneuf du Papes that have incredibly broad drink windows." - Wine Advocate
