Opened the night before but not consumed. Day 2 was really great. Very well balanced and great precise fruit with nice minerals and spice.

Last bottle, but surely a nice one! A totally brilliant effort. The Chante Le Merle continues to sing beautifully with plenty of integrated and balanced dark mature fruit, wet saddle leather, classy garrigue, abundant liquorice and fresh herbs. With an impressive texture and complexity, the integration is just superb. This is "total" experience - without doubt... The palate is full-throttle and has an impressive length and vibrant exuberant texture. Acidity is there, but still not overly expressed, just balanced. There is no sign of heat at all. The integration has just continued to improve and is no very impressive. Altogether a super effort! (score is 95+)

Showed nicely. Soft ripe red fruit with hints of savory notes. There was a flutter of violets on the nose that was quite nice.

I was reluctant to rate this one because Rhone wines are apparently not really my thing. As they go, though this one was extremely pleasant. Very rich, strong floral bouquet; nicely integrated tannins, not overpowering the delicious ripe fruit; surprisingly long finish. A little heavy duty for my tastes, but an excellent and well balanced wine.

20+ CDP Dinner (Bristol): Started of with a bit of bottle funk that blew off. The best description is that this is a charming wine if not fading a bit. But quite enjoyable.

Bottle was slightly oxidized, but the fruit and structure behind it was not interesting and next night the oxidation worsened and was dumped.

Very tight and muted with exceptionally grippy tannins on day one (definitely needs more time). Re-corked and opened again the next day. Much more expressive with slightly stewed plum, rhubarb, raspberry, strawberry, baking spices and a hint of cedar which followed through on the pallet. Tannins were still a little aggressive but much easier to handle on the 2nd day. Very graceful and elegant. An absolutely gorgeous wine which needs at least five more years before it really comes into it's own. Can't wait!!

2008 Bosquet des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc

White Rhone Blend more

5/29/2015 - huse wrote: 90 points

Varietal composition: 45 % Clairette, 35 % Grenache Blanc and 20 % Bourboulenc. Maturation: 80 percent of the wine was aged in stainless steel; the remaining 20 percent in new demi-muids (600 liters oak barrels) for 8 months. Color: light yellow (still quite young). Nose: aromatic bouquet of white flowers, lime, melon and a hint of fennel. On the palate: a nicely balanced wine dominated by rich yellow fruit and supported by a refreshing acidity and an herbaceous minerality. Good length. I think this wine is at its peak; drink it now and over the next year or so.

Samenstelling: 45 % Clairette, 35 % Grenache Blanc en 20 % Bourboulenc. Rijping: 80 percent van de wijn rijpte op roestvrij staal; de resterende 20 percent gedurende 8 maanden in nieuwe demi-muids (eiken vaten van 600 liter). Kleur: licht geel (nog steeds een vrij jeugdige kleur). Neus: een aromatisch bouquet van witte bloesem, limoen, meloen en een vleugje venkel. In de mond: een mooi uitgebelanceerde wijn, gedomineerd door rijk geel fruit en ondersteund door een verfrissende aciditeit en een kruidige mineraliteit. Degelijke afdronk. Naar mijn mening is deze wijn nu op zijn hoogtepunt. Optimaal drinkgenot: nu tot volgend jaar.

10th of 12, previous bottles very good to fine plus but one corked, not decanted - deepish, glossy brick red, little development; very attractive and integrated bouquet tending to floral and damson and black cherry with a little truffle and sous bois but no obvious grenache pepper or mourvedre sweaty saddle; medium full, glossy/velvety for CdP, old vine depth and length, very persistent and classy, best bottle yet! Fine plus (18/20).

What a great wine already! Beautiful and lush bouquet with ripe dark fruits and beautiful spiciness. On the palate soft and sweet, but also beautiful acidity and tannin. All in a perfect balance. Some chocolate as well. A very complete wine. Delicious already and this wine certainly has the potential still being great in the 2020's. 98 for tonight.

Beautifully ripe and sweet fruits and soft garrigue in the bouquet. On the palate ripe fruits as well, herbs and spices like pepper and a firm amount of acidity. Needs a few years to show what it has in store. Try around 2016. 90++ for today

Dense, powerful nose with spice and dark chocolate; amazing concentration on the palate, thickly fruited. Dense, powerful wine. Ageworthy - very impressive.

Gorgeous sophisticated port-like bouquet leads to a sharply bifurcated wine of over-ripe fruit and lingering, bitter tannins with traditional Rhone accents. I hope this will come together with time.

Pretty good without being exceptional, this is approaching full maturity with tertiary notes of garrigue and underbrush combined with dried red fruit. 13.5% alcohol so not heavy, neither clumsy, just a little boring perhaps.

Nose is mostly raspberry and kirsch for me. The palate, though, is really interesting; a combination of cherry liqueur, blood, and tart acids. It's the sanguine flavor that really get me -- I'm a fan. But I could use a little more of a counterpoint to the fruit and tart. Still -- a wine worth watching, and I am glad that Bosquet is on my radar.

Another poor showing of this wine at a tasting, this time properly flawed with unpleasant barnyard notes on the nose - sweet, maderised. Very sweet and equally unpleasant on the palate.

Magnum night with the neighbors (Somewhere on E. 4th street): From Magnum, this is young still but a nice showing. The nose has raspberries, some earthy funk, spice and slight floral notes. On the palate, this is not real ripe which works for it especially so young and at dinner. Nice black raspberry fruit. juicy acidity. Some complexity. A few years at least from peak of course, but drinking well today. A nice addition.

Återigen, ett riktigt bra vin med fin mognad. Troligen på topp nu pch ett tag framöver. Fortfarande taniner kvar som bär upp frukten exemplariskt. Mer lakrits och djup i smaken än jag noterat tidigare.
Prisvärdheten är verkligen 100%
