Gaillard Cote-Rotie Rose Pourpre 2004 
Characteristics: Pierre Gaillard’s 2004 Rose Pourpre is strong, refined and worth ageing. Derived from the parcel of Côte Rozier on the slopes of Ampuis from a gifted parcel just below the justly famous La Landonne vineyard whose wines retail between $400 and $500 a bottle, this south facing amphitheater is comprised of the same brown schist, rich in iron oxide and remains one of the warmest parts of Côte Rôtie. This plot, measuring less than two acres, turns out exhilarating Syrah wines with extremely peppery noses balanced by the sweet and sour tension of plums and roasted meats. Given ten years to come into its own and mature into a great wine, the 2004 Rose Pourpre embodies this to be sure but now also bears tertiary notes of lofty pine resin and heady roses in bloom –all grounded by a meaty bouillon bottom –there is nothing like an aged Syrah that is still fresh despite all these savory, dry roasted mushroom depths. This is a fragrant wonder just opening into a glorious and graceful stride.

Mont Olivet Chateauneuf-du-Pape 6/1500 2016 
Characteristics: Garrigue and ripe raspberries meld licorice, sage, rosemary and lavender! Fragrant with roses all over the palate and long onto the finish this is exemplary Chateauneuf-du-Pape in that it is thoroughly packed with engaging red and black fruit but really expressive of the fragrant garrigue one loves to find and thrilled when found at this intensity. If you love the heady scent of woodlands, eat game, or simply like to sip wines of soul and inimitable character, this needs ticking off your list of sought after joys -you will have a friend for life.

Mont Olivet Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Papet 2016 
Characteristics: Chateauneuf du Pape par excellence! Though riding high in its stirrups in its flushed youth, the 2010 La Cuvee du Papet, dense earthy aromas of wild mushrooms in tension with more elegant and high floral and yet beneath it all is a meaty, sanguine raw venison, spiced citrus rind. Garrigue, minty eucalyptus, soft black cherries and heavily ripened, red fleshed pluots make for a compelling Chateuneuf-du-Pape.
Wine review by Nicholas Livingston, February 2013

First produced in 1989, the flagship jewel of the estate is the Chateauneuf-du-Pape made only in the exceptional vintages from our oldest vines of Grenache (the oldest vines were planted in 1901) with a compliment of Mourvèdre and/or Syrah in varying proportions. All the varietals are fermented together and give rise to a wine both concentrated and elegant, with a great finish.
