Clos du Mont-Olivet is a true insider's Chateauneuf-du-Pape domaine.  It's the collector's choice for traditional, aromatic and age-worthy Chateauneuf-du-Pape.  The estate is a beacon of traditionalism and the wines are classical in style with heady, complex aromatics.  Robert Parker called it one of the great Chateauneuf-du-Pape estates and went on to write, "One of the benchmark producers of Châteauneuf-du-Pape…the consistent results have always been classic Châteauneuf-du-Papes that stand the test of time."  Wine critic Jeb Dunnuck writes, "Consistently outstanding, classic Côtes du Rhônes and Châteauneuf du Papes emerge from Clos du Mont-Olivet, run by the incredibly talented and thoughtful Thierry Sabon for a number of years now.”  The dynamic and talented Thierry Sabon has garnered vast praise across the wine world.  It has become very clear over the many years that Thierry has been in charge of this family estate, that the quality has never been higher.  Clos du Mont-Olivet wines are remarkably intricate and refined.  They value freshness and elegance over bombastic power.  The Cuvee Unique is a special bottling done with North Berkeley Imports.  The 2021 Clos du Mont-Olivet Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Unique is fresh, lively and elegant.  It's done in a beautiful, classic style with terrific overall balance.  This Rhone red has aromas of blackberry, red cherry and baking spices.  It's smooth and concentrated with a very long, graceful finish.  It has flavors of tart cherries, red plums and light licorice.  It's polished and layered with ripe tannins and bright acidity.  Enjoy! 

James Suckling, 93 Points 

"This 2021 Chateauneuf has wonderful red fruit aromas and a very satisfying harmony, which is more than most of the wines. Lots of gentle tannins give this a pleasantly mellow mouthfeel that's very easy to enjoy, but also sophisticated. Long, graceful finish." 

Vinous, 92 Points 

"The 2021 Châteauneuf-du-Pape matured for 20 months in a combination of foudre, , concrete and steel tanks. This 2021 Châteauneuf-du-Pape offers up lively aromas of ripe red and black fruits, tomato leaf, cloves and dried herbs. It is a polished and layered full-bodied red with ripe tannins and bright acidity, capturing the freshness really well." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"A special North Berkeley Imports selection, aged exclusively in older éclairs passed down from generation to generation in the Sabon family, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. A wine that can and will age with grace for 15 years or more.  Aromas of blackberry, red cherry and baking spices. Smooth, concentrated yet balanced; flavors of tart cherries, red plums and light licorice. Very long." 

Alcohol: 15%
