A candidate for the wine of the vintage in 2002 is Clos des Papes’ 2002 Chateauneuf du Pape. A severe selection resulted in a medium-bodied, Burgundian-styled red possessing sweet and sour cherry, pomegranate, spice box, and balsam wood characteristics. Natural alcohol of 13.8% gives the wine body. Light tannin is noticeable in the spicy finish. This 2002 should drink well for 7-8 years.

Robert Parker

Other details

This bottle has been in storage until recently and is now currently in wine fridge. This is an excellent wine from a great estate in an off-vintage. It still retains that slight gamey chargacter one find in Chateauneuf from estates of this quality.

A must for any Rhone fan.
