Available for:
The Chateauneuf du Pape is 90% Grenache, the vines ranging in age from 60 to 100 years of age, and balance the other twelve Chateauneuf varietals. From these he obtains superb natural ripeness, usually in excess of 14%. The vinification is traditional and the aging is for the most part in large oak foudre, but also a portion in barrique, however no new oak.

One of the finest wines of the vintage is the 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape, a true star and certainly one of the finest wines Philippe Ferrand has yet made. A dense saturated purple color to the rim offers up notes of seaweed wrappers from a sushi bar interwoven with licorice, blackberries, creme de cassis, kirsch liqueur, and Asian spice. Superbly concentrated, with terrific purity and a full-bodied, layered palate with good freshness and definition, this is a stunner and can be drunk early or cellared for up to 15 more years.

Very pure, with a big beam of raspberry and boysenberry confiture running through the middle, along with notes of licorice, violet and graphite. Long finish has deceptive grip. A producer steadily on the rise. Drink now through 2026.
