2000 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

First time I have had a proper try of an older vintage of this wine with time to enjoy and savour. Boy, well worth the wait. The nose was amazing.
Lovely balance on the palate.
Think this is in its sweet spot. May improve, it it's great now.
Can't wait for the next one.

Well, hello old friend. The color here is light red, almost Burgundian. Lovely spicy, perfumed nose underpinned by subtle red fruit. So light and elegant, resolved, tertiary flavors of underbrush, dried red fruits and tobacco. Fully mature now and not likely to improve. A great treat if one wants a throwback to old-school neuf. Love it.

Decanted 3 hours. Soft nose of balsam, tree sap, and dusty cherry. Round and balanced in the mouth with dark red fruits and cherry bark coming through. Medium finish. Wanted to like this more. Everything was where it should be but the volume was turned down too low. Didn't really pop. Good pairing with Provencal short-ribs with olives and orange zest.

A very nice wine. Pretty nose. Tannins have mostly subsided, very smooth, but with a lot going on underneath. Dark color, blackberry and certainly garrigue.

Some nice wines over the last two nights; 5/13/2015-5/14/2015: I have been really enjoying the 04's lately. As a general rule, they seem to be entering peak drinking for my tastes. This was no exception. Purple/ruby in color. The nose was great with raspberries, dark cherries, spice and leather. Full bodied. Great juicy texture. Lots of layers of fruit and earth and spice on the palate. Long finish. Beautiful wine. Not a monster, but not reticent either.

Très riche et dense, fort complexe et jeune.
Texture juteuse et bonne acidité, un brin moderne mais bien avec une belle pièce de viande.

Dinner Wines and a Teutonic Tasting; 5/7/2015-5/10/2015 (Various): Light medium red color. Coravined a glass plus and drank over 2 hours. Still doing just fine and I really can't believe its been almost a year and a half since I last had it. Just lovely with the damp earth, garrigue and leather out front and dried red berry fruit in the background. The palate is light bodied, tart with dried cherries, and medium tannins that give definition to the earthy elegance.

Still showing well. Quite rich and full on the palate. Not as much of the tropical elements at this point, but still has a savory aspect and good acidity to balance it. This still has quite a bit of fullness and character. I don't know if it will improve any, but it should show well for a few more years.

Junguenet bottling. Garnet color with faded edge. After a blast of funk, some red fruit. Medium weight with some glycerine. Toned down plummy fruit and herbs. Retains a pleasant sweetness upfront, but a harsh finish. Overall, this bottle did not create much of a positive impression and seemed to be on a downward slope.

1990 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

4/30/2015 - Caruso Likes this wine: 100 points

Perfect bottle in perfect condition. This is really suprising. Not only the best bottles of 1990 Clos des Papes I ever had, but the best bottle of Clos des Papes. Round, lush with great purity, poise and length. Exploding Flavors and a style that reminds of top burgundy. Of course it should be drunk up, because you never now what's the condition of a bottle unless you pulled the cork. This bottle however could have been cellared for a decade or more, but a bottle one year ago which probably was corked and oxidized had a cork in poor condition.

What a beauty this Clos des Papes! Unique complexity, restless aromas, multidimensional, in constant opening, when will it stop delivering?! Rich and pure, revealing strawberry, cherry, gooseberry, butter, wet grass, dirty mushrooms, read meat, cotton candy and wild flowers. If you can take your nose aside get ready for the creamiest sweet fruit, spiced, perfectly framed by soften tannins, offering both physicality and subtlety, riding smooth and savory and lasting forever. Drink now!!! (2 hours decanted) 96

Completely different on the body; it was still quite fresh, with orange marmalade, tropical fruit, honey, minerals, and almond. Good acidity.
