Lot #518. Clos du Mont Olivet Chateauneuf du Pape La Cuvee du Papet 2009

Description: Consists of 3 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 95 VM.
"Vibrant red color. High-pitched aromas of raspberry, candied cherry, allspice and clove, with an intense floral quality that gaining strength with air. Showing more energy and delicacy from bottle than it did from barrel last year; in fact, there's something Burgundian going on here. Silky and seamless on the palate, with a bracing minerality adding punch to its sweet red fruit and floral pastille qualities. Finishes spicy and very long, with lingering red fruit and floral notes. This wine virtually always delivers the most bang for the buck of any Chateauneuf tete de cuvee and this vintage continues that streak." Vinous, Jan 2012
Provenance: The Alzette Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $200
