After keeping it all these years, the wine was slightly corked. Of what I could taste through the TCA was an over-ripe, over the hill wine.

Garnet ro ruby garnet at the rim, opaque and a bit cloudy. The smells are crushed cherry, cinnamon, tar, blackberry, blueberry... very complex. The tastes are cherry, olive, blueberry, cinnamon, sweet spices, espresso, stone, and garrigue. There is a little heat but this is not unbalanced, the tannins are stout, the acidity is wonderful, and there are loads of complex and delicious flavors. Fantastic bottle today.

Deeper red than VT 95 drank alongside. Damson , garrigue and old leather on nose. Restrained power on palate , plenty of fruit and earth with long finish. A good contrast with VT which on this occasion was the more elegant but both very good in their own way.

Not the fruit driven clos des papes I am accustomed to , this was more beaucastel in style with lots of barnyard leather and garrigue. The funky bramble earthy berry fruits reminds me of Barolo with it's spiced finish.

Holy cow! How to rate this? First describe it... Deep sweet blackberry and cherry nose with a hint of mint freshness and some Bordeaux like elements. Amazingly well balanced palate. Acidity, sweetness, bitterness and alcohol all perfectly together. Sweet and fruity with depth and layered. Amazing finish which never seems to end. Exeptional wine. One of the best I have ever tasted, absolutely sublime! And therefore a well deserved 99 points.

This was surprisingly quite weak, a bit flabby, tired. Not faulty, but bad storage?

Decanted and drunk over 1.5 hours. Autumnal wine. Nose and mouth have a slightly brownish tinge, with notes of compost behind the lovely garrigue. Excellent bottle. Tannins have fully melted, leaving fine layered structure behind. I'll drink remaining bottles slowly over the next 3 years

TN: Rhone dinner (The Grill Room at Capella Hotel Georgetown): This also shows incredible well. The best bottle of the 03 Clos des Papes I had. More red fruit driven compare to the 03 Pegau, intense ripe sweet red fruits, cherry, strawberry, raspberry, rare steak, animal and earth. Exceptional concentration, intense jammy red fruit driven palate impression, nicely layered fruits, good acidity, nicely integrated tannins and lovely long finish. This also needs another decade but is already quite enjoyable.

Quite open and delightful - also light on it's with underlying sweet noses of Grenache, and the rustic Mourvèdre more in the background. Though very fresh, this fully mature, if you not looking for the very old and very tertiary. To me, this hits the spot - and though i have no bottles left, I can live with that, and this will get me through #electionnight.

Last couple of bottles , while very good were not up to the best. This was a great bottle. Colour still deep, magnificent nose, rich damson leather herbs, all in balance. Delicious on palate still firm fruit, broadening out in the middle palate to a perfectly poised finish. Gorgeous.

Touch of licorice on the palate.
Very enjoyable.

A Casual Wednesday in Toronto with the Toronto Cru (FWR, Toronto, ON): (tasted blind) This pours moderate ruby with some translucency and slight flecks of orange toward the rim. The nose shows abundant alcohol, powdered red candy, twizzlers, herbs, violets, cured meat, a touch of oak and dry earth. Certainly a modern style, but also maturing. The palate shows medium tannin, medium acid. I wondered whether this was a barbera, but ultimately didn't know. I didn't find that this spoke to it's region or was particularly exciting.

Beijing dumpling night Chez Moi (courtesy of Grace) (At home): My third and last magnum. Rich and smooth as I remembered, with a heady nose of dark berries and licorice. The palate is more refined than your usual CDP, partly because the alcohol is so neatly tucked away at the back of the fruit. The finish is long and velvety. This wine is very enjoyable, except that after a couple of glasses, it starts to get a bit heavy (for my taste)...

Super Tasting 4 of 5; Chris does 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape (Chris' House): Double decanted approximately 2 hours in advance, served blind. Translucent garnet in the glass. On the nose, this was showing a bit deeper in aromatics than some of the other wines, with seemingly more varietals here. Overall, quite clean aromas of blackberry, cherry, plum, dried herb, earth, spice and a touch of volatile acidity. On the palate, again, relatively clean, with tart red/black fruit, spice, earth, showing medium acidity, finishing moderate, with a bit of grip on the back end.

This is quite a Burgundian-type of CdP.

The color has already a bit lightened. The nose is stunning, with aromas of smoke and tobacco, but also very refined ripe red fruits. The somehow sweet taste is quite similar: smoke, tobacco and dark berry flavors are prominent at first, while red fruits and berries are dominating later. The taste is full-bodied and intense, but there is also some lightness and tenderness on the palate, partly due to the fresh acidity. The taste is very long.

This was a great experience, and I think that the wine was also in a very good phase right now. I am sad that my one and only bottle has now been consumed.

Un nez de fruit rouge ( fraises), de laurier, garrigue, poivre, kirsch, un peu d'anis, dans un ensemble complexe et suave. La bouche est à pleine maturité, c'est un vin encore vigoureux mais bien assagi, avec de la finesse et une belle précision. À boire sans trop tarder. 92 pts

Fresh crushed raspberries, sour cherry, thyme and iodine. Slightly tart. Good balance yet the tannin's were much more integrated than I would have expected. Short finish. Undoubtedly a well made wine without any technical faults, however this bottle failed to excite me - it lacked depth and interest.
