Good young C9DP. Spicy nose with hints of petrol and flowers full in bloom. Some bay leaf. Good palate, tannic and firm but very nice to drink.

Little better than the previous bottle. Full of perfume! Flowers full in bloom on a summer evening in the mediterranian, garrigue. Tasty palate, good wine.

Big, ripe wine. Sweet fruit. Young but very enjoyable. With 15% alcohol I drink it slightly chilled otherwise the alcohol is overpowering. Like it.

Nice wine, but did not stand out enough, to warrant purchasing additional bottles.

Just pulled a double of these bottles out of the cellar. Although I broke the cork while opening, the nectar inside the bottle is still great. Aroma although present, it did not jump out of the bottle. Good earth, black cherry and pepper flavors were dancing throughout the night. Well balance and very enjoyable. Looking forward to the next bottle.

Decantered for over an hour, could have waited longer, but the aroma was too good to wait. Deep crimson color on the rim of glass, the dark fruit aroma was intoxicating. The taste of dark fruit, cherries etc was overwhelmingly delicious. This bottle is what CdP is all about. Good price, great wine.

corked. Disappointing in that the wine was smooth but taste masked by cork taint

Surprisingly tasty. Tannins are still present, but they are not upfront. Rather, they are in the background and unobtrusive. Lovely dark purple color, without bricking. Roasted meats, and tobacco dominate. Well balanced, with enough acidity to make this wine drink younger than its years.

87-89: definitely in a mature phase. Earth, dark fruit, meaty notes. Big nose, short finish, decent value.

Pnp through a vinturri; appearance of a medium diffused purple-ruby; nose of musky black cherries, some green leafy herbs, and some hints of black fruits and cassis. Black peppery olives, dark espresso, with some dark black cherries on the palate; tannins on the front dissolve after some air; medium bodied with a medium finish.

Was expecting a lot given the producer and the vintage but this was a real disappointment for me.

Nose showing pretty black currants, some anise and brambly note as well. In the mouth the initial attack is good but then this just absolutely falls off a cliff. Thin and hot on the finish with little fruit.

Not sure if this is gone or perhaps just in a dumb phase. I don't have any more but if I did, I'd hold a good deal longer.

Post-Christmas Get Together (Mostly Loire Whites and Southern Rhone Reds) (San Francisco): Light ruby with tawny rim. Some animal elements on the nose along with blue fruit and distinct tree bark. Medium weight, good dark red fruit but much more serious and savory than the '05 Marcoux served before it. Still significant remaining tannin. Not as much of a crowd pleaser as the Marcoux, but I found it full of interest and not too funky to enjoy.

Very nice CdP that would have garnered a higher rating except it is still young. I will hold my other bottle for 3-4 years.

Consumed over two days. Good, solid CDP blanc. Medium-full bodied, concentrated. Mellow tannins and good richness on the mid palate. Low acidity.

Deep ruby. Balanced, but maybe just a touch too sweet. Nice meaty and smokey notes.

Lovely right now. Golden yellow color. Very rich on the nose, with flowery and tropical aromas. The taste is wonderful, like a real symphony of fruits of both tropical (e.g. pineapple, mango) and European (e.g. apricot) origin. There are flavors of honey and flowers as well. The taste is low-acidic, heavy and thick, but not overly fruity or sweet at all.

As the white Rhône wines age quickly, this is in quite a developed phase at the moment. But this phase is adorable, so drink this now, if you have a chance!

2 1/2 hour decant time. Has a medium-dark crimson-ruby in appearance. The nose is getting some strawberries, kirsch, hints of iodine, and meat. Raspberries and currants on the palate; somewhat creamy with its nice dose of grainy tannins. Medium bodied with a medium+ finish. Hold this for a couple more years before trying again.

Retailer tasting: Good herbs and spices, red fruits, a firm amount of sweetness, but also good acidity and tannin. No more notes, but this is a good wine. Early maturity now and certainly lovely until 2018+
