2005 Domaine Roger Perrin "Reserve des Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1214207 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep ruby. Intensely perfumed aromas of red and dark berry preserves, sexy gingerbread, anise and vanilla. Sweet raspberry, blackberry and cherry-vanilla flavors boast impressive depth and clarity, with firm but harmonious tannins adding grip. Turns spicier on the finish but maintains a remarkably sexy, fruit-dominated personality. Has the material to age but this is awfully delicious now. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2008)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Offers loads of iron grip, but the core of wonderfully pure blackberry and black currant fruit is an ample foil, while graphite and black tea flavors and velvety tannins rumble through the finish. Serious juice. Best from 2011 through 2024. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2010)

90-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2005 Reserve des Vieilles Vignes is a Chateauneuf du Pape built for the longer haul (for example, the 1998 Reserve des Vieilles Vignes is still aging slowly). Full-bodied, backward, and unevolved, this wine will certainly be even better by the time it’s in bottle. Deep ruby/purple to the rim, with a classic, but tight nose of crushed black cherry and jammy raspberries, a bit of incense, spice box, and pepper, it is full-bodied, powerful, with good acidity and moderately high tannins. This wine will take some time to resolve its tannin but should be at its best between 2009 and 2022+. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2007)
