Tasting Notes

In 2003, there will only be a Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Marie Beurrier. This cuvee has gotten better year by year. It was overly dry, hard, and austere in its youth, but it has filled out nicely, and his incredibly long elevage in old small barrels appears to have concentrated the wines in a way that only Bonneau can achieve, and neither Bonneau nor any modern oenologist can offer an idea as to why these wines turn out so remarkably given the cellar conditions. There are so many unidentified mushroom-like growths sprouting from the walls and, occasionally, on the outside of the barrels. Thank God for such mysteries!
