Domaine Raymond Usseglio & Fils Cuvée Impériale Vignes Centenaires Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2009

$47.95

One of the top Chateauneuf du Papes of the vintage...from 100-year-old vines planted in pure sand... this wine is close to rivaling their great 2007. Its stunning blue/purple color (remarkable for Grenache grown in sand) is followed by a full-bodied wine revealing exquisite concentrated notes of incense, lavender, camphor, black cherries and black currant liqueur. Tell-tale licorice and pepper characteristics are also present in this voluptuously textured, fleshy, full-bodied effort that is already drinkable. One of the stars of the vintage, it is capable of lasting 15-20 years. Robert Parker
