91 points "Even more impressive than the Rubis is the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Pierres Dorees. Aged in old small barrels (75%) and tank (25%), it is a blend of 75% Grenache and 25% Mourvedre. A dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by aromas of fresh mushrooms, blackberries, cherries, plums, and figs. Full-bodied and rich with moderately high tannins, it is a serious, classic, old style Chateauneuf du Pape that requires 2-3 years of cellaring; it should keep for two decades." Best 2010-2030
