Mont Olivet Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Papet 6/1500 2016

Clos du Mont-Olivet 2006 La Cuvée du Papet, Châteauneuf-du-Pape 14%

At its best, Châteauneuf-du-Pape will show the resplendent array of the aromas and flavors I find here: dried clove high notes of mulled orange peels, all sorts of fruits that echo later against the palate, and the spicy charms that Châteauneuf-du-Pape seems to parent year after year; some places have the knack. Lovely and dry with tannins this reminds me of other exceptional Châteauneuf-du-Papes in their promising youth. Charming and apt, this tough little Châteauneuf-du-Pape is growing before your eyes and on your palate; spouting off plum skins and spice, raspberries and seasoned hardwoods. La Cuvée du Papet shows its earthen complexity and rich breadth –imagine once it reaches its sweet spot! -NL, April 2009
