Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Sanctus Sanctorum 2012
Clos St. Jean

(lightly scuffed label)
1 magnum

"The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Sanctus Sanctorum is a singular wine and comes from a small plot of ancient Grenache vines that are located on the famed La Crau lieu-dit, on the eastern edge of the appellation, near Vieux Télégraphe. It offers an insane bouquet of cassis, kirsch and black raspberry intermixed with sweet licorice, toasted spice and ground pepper that's to die for. This is followed by a massive, full-bodied, seamless wine that has building tannin, no hard edges and a finish that won't quit. The only problem here is that it's almost impossible to get your hands on a bottle (there are roughly 200 magnums to go around). It's certainly in the same ballpark as the 2009 and 2010, and will have two decades of longevity, although it should be firing on all cylinders in 5-6 years." (99pts Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate #215, Oct 2014)
