Tasted Saturday, December 28, 2013 by rocknroller with 209 views
Six of us gathered for the annual holiday CDP tasting. On paper this had the potential to be one of the finest CDP tastings imaginable. Six very highly regarded wines . You never know how the wines will perform, but I don't think any of us could have hoped for anything more. Each and every wine had the potential to be WOTN in most any CDP tasting, and these wines all performed splendidly tonight.
WOTN voting was very difficult given the outstanding wines in the lineup. However, some clear choices came to the surface on this night. Would the results be the same if we had the same wines in 5 years? I suspect, the competition would be even tougher than it already was.
Voting was done with 3pts for 1st and so on, and split votes were allowed.
#1 WOTN: 2001 Domaine de la Mordorée Cuvée de la Reine des Bois (3+3+3+3+2.5+2=16.5pts)
#2 WOTN: 2001 Domaine Pierre Usseglio Cuvée de mon Aïeul (2.5+2+1.5+1+1=8pts)
#3 WOTN: 2005 Domaine Pierre Usseglio & Fils Réserve des Deux Frères (2+2+1.5+1+1=7.5pts)
2003 Pegau Reservee (3=3pts)
2007 Clos des Papes (1=1pt)
