Readers who love kirsch liqueur intermixed with ground pepper and almost a liqueur of herbes de Provence and earth will go bonkers over the character and concentration of the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Etienne Gonnet. This wine is so gorgeous now it is hard to believe it is actually going to age that well, but knowing this wine from the 1990 vintage, which is somewhat similar, it ages beautifully for 12-15 years.

Wine maker notes
Owned by the Gonnet family, this domaine is run by the two brothers, Michel and Jean. Font de Michelle is located in the town of Bedarrides, the southern-most village in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The Gonnet family owns almost 30 hectares (75 acres) of vineyards, with the largest portion of their vines in La Crau, one of the most favored sites in the entire appellation. The Grenache vines in La Crau are between 45 and 110 years old. Michel and Jean make a severe selection of only the oldest vines to produce a few hundred cases of this outstanding example of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. This is a wine that can be aged for 10-20 years. 60% Grenache, average age 75 to 110 years old, picked late sur maturite 20% Syrah, average vine age 40 years old 20% Mourvedre, average vine age 40 plus years old Half of the fruit is de-stemmed All of the wine is made in small casks This wine is bottled unfiltered.
