Average critic rating : 89.0 points



Slightly broader, with a more velvety texture and slightly more concentrated fruit is the round, generous 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Etienne Gonnet. This wine displays lots of spice, earth, plum, fig, and black cherry flavors, has no hard edges, and is quite hedonistic, but again, best drunk over the next 7-8 years. ||This has been one of the most reliable estates in Chateauneuf du Pape for well over two decades. The Gonnet brothers and their family, working in their cellars in Bedarrides, just next door to Vieux Telegraphe, produce two estate cuvees and a negociant wine. The general practice is to age the Syrah and Mourvedre components in small barrels and the Grenache in tank before blending. Wine Advocate.October, 2008
