Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
The explosive 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape achieved 14.5% natural alcohol. No wood was used in its upbringing, and there was no bleeding of the tanks to increase concentration. Made from extremely old vines, it is a fabulous effort boasting an opaque purple color along with a gorgeously sweet nose of candied licorice, blackberry liqueur, underbrush, pepper, and kirsch. It is superbly concentrated, multilayered, voluptuously-textured, and exceptionally long (45 seconds). It is a traditional blend of 82% Grenache, 8% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre, and 5% Vaccarese. It should hit its prime in 4-6 years, peak at around age 10-15, and last for 20+ years. It is an awesome performance from one of Chateauneuf du Pape's emerging stars.

eviewer, Robert Parker - The Hedonist's Gazette - The 2000 is pure, silky sex in a bottle, whereas the 1998 is more animal and rustic. Both are marvelous examples of old vine Grenache-based Ch√Ęteauneuf du Pape that has never seen a day in wood ... old or new.

The glories at this estate are unquestionably their Chateauneuf du Papes. Fashioned from a blend of 82% Grenache, and the rest Syrah, Mourvedre, and a dollop of Vacarese, the 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape initially appears closed, but with 30 minutes of airing, it explodes from the glass. A deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by a sweet nose of creme de cassis, kirsch liqueur, licorice, pepper, and underbrush. Voluptuously-textured and exceptionally long (the finish lasts 45+ seconds), with silky tannin, low acidity, and full body, it is less tannic and delineated than the 2001, but it offers a gorgeous, seductive mouthful of old vine Chateauneuf du Pape. It will age effortlessly for 12-15 years. Readers who believe Chateauneuf du Pape can not be a wine of finesse and elegance should taste Charvin!
 

Additional Information

Region :
France
Though French wines are the highest valued wines in the world, esteemed wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne were only enjoyed locally until 150 years ago when transportation improvements made them widely available. French wine production is governed by a strict quality-control system, which regulates the grapes used in each region and classifies wineries according to an elaborate cru hierarchy. Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc are just a few of the important grape varietals with roots in French soil. View all our items from France
