Background: The January 2012 issue of Decanter Magazine featured an extensive tasting of 2009 Chateauneuf-du-Pape. 235 different, in fact!
Only 2 wines in 235 received Decanter's prestigious 5 Star Award. This great value wine was rated #2 - a fantastic achievement for a wine at this price level.
Decanter's #2 2009 Chateauneuf-du-Pape was the Domaine Tour Saint Michel Cuvee des Deux Soeurs. It received 5 Stars and a score of 18.88 Points (just a fraction behind the #1 wine which scored 19 Points).
Decanter says: 18.88 Points. Fresh, clean nose. Soft tannins, delicate use of oak and soft ripe fruit, with a floral uplift and refreshing acidity. Has delicious complexity and clarity of fruit with fabulous balance. Poised and elegant. Drink: 2012-2020. 5 Stars.
The wine outscored far more expensive 2009 Chateauneufs from Usseglio, Clos St Jean, Chapoutier, Roger Sabon and Bousquet des Papes to name just a few.
