The dense purple-colored 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape, 80% foudre-aged Grenache and 20% Syrah and Mourvedre aged in small barrels, offers a beautiful bouquet of blackberries, roasted meats, sweet herbs, and new saddle leather. Full-bodied and super-concentrated with no hard edges, it should drink beautifully for 12–15 years.

Dark and concentrated, with solid grip for the vintage helping to push the black fig, currant, mocha, bittersweet cocoa and Turkish coffee notes through the long, juicy finish. Drink now through 2028.

90–93 pts. : December, 2007

The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition is 80% Grenache and then equal parts Syrah and Mourvedre, with Christophe Sabon saying the Mourvedre was the best he had seen in over a decade form his estate vineyards. The Grenache is aged in foudre, but small barrels are used for the Syrah and Mourvedre. Dense ruby/purple, structured for a 2006, with sweet, concentrated fruit, low acidity, and ripe tannin, this is a seriously endowed, concentrated Chateauneuf du Pape that begs for 2–3 years of bottle age, and should drink well for 15 or more years.
