'Performing even better out of bottle than it did from foudre, the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape is a sensual, sexy, lush, medium-bodied, dark garnet-colored offering with a rich bouquet of tapenade, plum liqueur, lavender, smoke, and Chinese black tea. Sweet, full-bodied, lush, and layered, it is a total hedonistic as well as intellectual turn-on. This up-front Chateauneuf should be consumed over the next 7-8 years.'
