Showing brilliantly, with a deep, rich and layered profile, the straight 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape has gorgeous black cherry, earth, underbrush and background meatiness that gives way to a full-bodied, concentrated and pure feel on the palate. A foudre-aged blend of 30% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 5% Cinsault, with the balance a mix of the other permitted varieties, this knockout Chateauneuf du Pape will have another 10-15 years of prime drinking.

Note that in 2004 there was slightly more Mourvedre than usual in the blend - 35%. Medium+ garnet colour. Earthy aromas starting to kick-in with notes of loam, forest floor and tobacco leaf complimenting the red cherry and warm strawberry fruits. A waft of dried Mediterranean herbs. Medium to full body. Medium to high acidity and a medium level of grainy tannins are fleshed out by savoury and spice flavours. Long finish with a little minerality coming through. Drink now to 2025+. Tasted August 2009.
