Winemaker Notes:

First produced in 1989. the Flagship (jewel) of the estate and made only in exceptional vintages from our oldest vines of Grenache (the oldest were planted in 1901) with a compliment of Mourvedre and/or Syrah in varying proportions according to the vintage. All the varietals are fermented together and give rise to a wine both concentrated and elegant and with a great finish.

The deeper hued 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape La Cuvée Du Papet checks in as a blend of 75% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre, and 10% Syrah that saw plenty of stems and aging mostly in foudre, with a small part in demi-muids and barrique. Straight-up sensational notes of blackcurrants, ground pepper, garrigue, leather, and graphite emerge from the glass, and it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a concentrated, dense, powerful mouthfeel, building tannins, and a brilliant finish. It's built for the long haul, and along with the 2016, it's one of the finest wines I've tasted from this talented family. Hide bottles for 7-8 years and enjoy over the following 20-25+.

Dense nose of black cherry, bitter chocolate, smoke and licorice. Very concentrated, compact and youthful. However, the tannins and wide-screen body are already beautifully integrated. Very long finish, powered by full, plush tannins. Drinkable now, but best from 2025.

Dark in profile, but very seductive, with the cassis, crushed plum and cherry reduction notes carried by the substantial yet very silky structure. Light floral, incense, black tea and warm earth details score the finish. Tantalizing now for its mouthfeel and expressiveness, but there's no rush at all. Drink now through 2038. 300 cases made, 100 cases imported.

Brilliant violet. A highly perfumed nose displays mineral- and spice-accented red and dark berries, licorice and a hint of potpourri. Sappy cherry, black raspberry and spicecake flavors show vibrant lift and take on floral pastille and botanical herb nuances as the wine opens up. In a lively style, finishing sweet, floral and extremely long, with fine-grained tannins adding final grip.
