Looking like a step up over the ’12, the 2011 Châteauneuf du Pape Arioso is 100% Grenache, all from the Pignan lieu-dit and vines planted in 1942, which will spend about 60 months in demi-muid prior to bottling. Despite this crazy long elevage, it stays fresh and lively, with a rich, rounded and creamy texture that carries loads of black cherry, black raspberry, spiced meat and crushed-flower-like aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, ripe and yet also elegant, it will have 10-15 years of longevity.||While I was able to taste a number of 2013 samples, I wasn’t impressed, nor able to really tell what cuvees those would go in, so I opted to leave those reviews out. eRobertParker.com.October, 2014
