90 Pts Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Much broader and slightly deeper ruby in color than the regular bottling is the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Vigneronne. Boasting classic kirsch liqueur notes intermixed with tobacco leaf, spice box, and pepper, it is expansive, heady, and seemingly high in alcohol given its intoxicating nose and flavors. With outstanding fruit, low acidity, and a sweet, silky finish, it should drink well for 10-12 years." -90 Points - Robert Parker
"Deep red. Earthy but sweet on the nose, showing darker fruit tones than the Pieds d'Armand as well as notes of sassafras and roasted coffee. Large-scaled and rich, with plump cherry and dark berry flavors and notes of tobacco, licorice and exotic blood orange. Finishes broad and long, with a trace of heat and fine, well-managed tannins." -90 Points - Josh Raynolds - International Wine Cellar
"Henri Bouton decided to retire in 2006 and sold his vineyards belonging to his Domaine des Relagnes, to Chateau Calissane and 3.5 hs to his former son-in-law Olivier Hillaire. Olivier already worked at Domaine des Relagnes as winemaker with Philippe Cambie as consultant."
"The Chateauneuf-du-Pape is made from 90% Grenache, 5% Syrah, and 5% Mourvedre coming from the vines in the lieu-dit Grand Pierre. The wine is aged in tanks, demi-muids, and small barrels. Approximately 5000 bottles are produced." -Harry Karis - The Chateauneuf-du-Pape
