2013 CLOS DU MONT-OLIVET “CUVEE UNIQUE” Châteauneuf-du-Pape
One of the reference standards for top-quality Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Clos du Mount-Olivet is a blend dominated by old vine Grenache, with some of the vines dating back over a century… This third generation, family owned winery has a history of stellar reviews, and a reputation for producing some of the best Châteauneuf-du-Pape, all while keeping their prices impressively realistic.
The very special “Cuvee Unique” is a barrel selection from the winery’s regular Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and is much more limited, and can be construed as a Reserve Level wine. When Josh Reynolds reviewed the winery’s lower end Châteauneuf, he raved, calling it, “Graceful, focused and appealingly”, “a suave blend of power and finesse.” 91-93 Points… You can bet that the “Cuvee Unique”, which is a barrel selection of these same barrels, would generate even more praise.
An aromatic masterpiece, originating from a wide range of vineyards from the North to the South of Châteauneuf, each adding its own unique aspect, and contributing to the final blend, which is spectacular. This is simply one of the best Châteauneuf-du-Papes, under $50, on the market…
