Chapoutier’s 2005 Châteauneuf du Pape Croix de Bois is gorgeous, and while I’ve always preferred the Barbe Rac to this cuvee, I think the quality between the two is neck and neck. A blend of 100% Grenache that was vinified and aged all in concrete, this naked, raw expression of the variety gives up classic jammy dark fruits, toasted bread, garrigue, red licorice and sweet spice on the nose. Silky, refined and elegant, yet with full-bodied richness and tons of character, it’s a knockout bottle of Grenache to drink anytime over the coming 5-7 years.

Tasting note


The 2005 M. Chapoutier Chateauneuf-du-Pape Croix de Bois Rouge is a testament to the art of winemaking. This organic and biodynamic wine, hailing from the renowned Rhone region of France, presents an intense red appearance and a nose rich with black fruits and blackberry jam. On the palate, it is unctuous and ample, boasting warm tannins that promise a wine with the potential to age gracefully for decades. The winemaking process, which includes vinification in concrete tanks and a careful ageing period, ensures a pure expression of Grenache. With a full-bodied richness and a flavour profile that includes toasted bread, garrigue, red licorice, and sweet spice, this wine is a true delight for the senses. Enjoy it now or let it evolve in the cellar for a few more years.
