Robert Parker - 87-89+ See more...
The 2008 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes comes from primarily old vine Grenache from the sector known as La Crau, and is blended with small quantities of Mourvedre and Syrah. A dense ruby color is followed by notes of Provencal herbs, lavender, licorice, spice box, and plenty of red and black fruits, good breadth of flavor, and an attractive savory quality. It should age well for 8-10 years. (Not yet released) Previously recommended in issue #179, but not tasted out of bottle: 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Speciale (94-95), 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (92-94), 2007 Cotes du Rhone Cuvee Speciale (91-93), 2007 Cotes du Rhone y Louis (91-93)

The only question with this wine is whether it might be too much of a good thing. It's full bodieed and densely concentrated, with oaky notes of toasted almond and vanilla layered over plummy fruit, finishing warm and lush. Hedonistic to the max. Drink now.
