Wine Advocate

The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Quet (80% tank-aged Grenache and 20% small barrel-aged Mourvedre from 60-year-old vines) is spectacular. Its dense purple color is accompanied by an exquisite bouquet of boysenberries, mulberries, blueberries and other wild mountain blue and black fruits. Possessing great intensity, a full-bodied mouthfeel and superb purity, it is a singular expression of old vine Grenache blended with Mourvedre. The finish lasts for 50+ seconds, and the wine has a skyscraper-like texture as well as a multidimensional set of aromatics and flavors. This brilliant offering is more evolved and forward than either the 2007 or 2010.

Score: 96. —Robert Parker, October 2011.

Wine Spectator

This is all lean muscle, with singed mesquite and tobacco notes pushed by dark currant, braised fig, plum reduction and tar flavors that cut a broad swath. Densely wound through the grippy finish, with a mouthfilling bittersweet cocoa edge that stays polished and fresh. One of the bigger wines in the vintage. Best from 2013 through 2024. 460 cases made.

Score: 94. —James Molesworth, November 15, 2011.
