The 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes may not attain the perfection of the 1998, or the pure exuberance and voluptuousness of the 2000, but it is a brilliant effort. A wine of nobility as well as purity, this cuvee, made primarily from 50-100 year old Grenache vines, exhibits a dark plum/purple color as well as a sumptuous bouquet of Provencal herbs, roasted meats, creme de cassis, blackberries, and violets. Floral and full-bodied with a seamlessness that only old vines can provide, it possesses rich, concentrated, pure fruit, low acidity, and admirable delineation (because of its tannic structure). Give it 2-3 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following 15-18 years.

Winespectator / James Suckling (90)

Lovely aromas. Elegant, offering layers of smoke, spice, plum, blackberry and leather. Full-bodied, with firm but well-integrated tannins. The finish is mouthwatering from the good, clean-tasting acidity, but a bit tough. Needs time.
