92 points "The stunning, deep ruby/purple-hued 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape exhibits black fruits, licorice, incense, and hints of grilled meats and garrigue. While not as explosively aromatic or full as the 2007, the full-bodied, velvety textured, big, substantial 2006 is a top success for the vintage. Drink it over the next 15 years." Best 2008-2023

92 points "Very juicy, with layers of raspberry and plum fruit cascading over each other, while fruitcake, red licorice, floral and mineral notes fill in the background. The long, driven finish lets the purity shine. Really fine-grained. A very consistent performer, this should flesh out nicely in the cellar. Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah and Cinsault. Drink now through 2023. 2,000 cases made. –JM" Best 2008-2023
