Clos des Papes are one of the great Chateauneuf producers and rarely fail to produce a good wine each vintage but the 2006 stands out from the crowd for value. The 2007 vintage received a perfect 100 point score sending the prices sky high and the 2006 to the long forgotten past. Yet the 2006 was an excellent vintage: elegant, well-balanced, and full of verve that has aged beautifully.
