The top wine (formerly called the Reserve Sixtine), the 2011 Cuvee Sixtine Chateauneuf du Pape is the best of the 2011s and an interesting blend of 40% Grenache, 35% Mourvedre and 25% Syrah that was aged 60% in barrels. Beautifully concentrated, with toast, pepper, earth and blackberry-driven aromas and flavors, it flows onto the palate with a medium to full-bodied, concentrated and rich texture that is decidedly un-2011 like. Beautifully done and a rock-solid wine in the vintage, it should have a decade of longevity. Oct 2013, www.robertparker.com, Drink: 2014-2021

Saturated ruby. Black raspberry, potpourri and woodsmoke on the highly perfumed nose. Sweet and broad on entry, then more taut in the mid-palate, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and a touch of spicecake. Puts on weight with air and finishes smooth and long, with lingering floral and spice notes. Jan 2014, www.vinous.com
