Started off smellng fairly tired: plummy old fruit. Decantation actually helped the wine, bringing forth the most amazing nose of raspberries. On the palate it was still somewhat plummy but with a sense of freshness,

Chocolate covered blackberries comes to mind at first...lots of plum, a light cola thing....super mellowed tannins. Not much on the nose but mouth feel is nice and soft with a good finish. Prolly the best Vaqueyra I've had but to be honest I don't have them a lot since I feel they need lots of time to be good. A bit left for night two is still solid though the sediment at the end is a bunch. To be expected for 10 yr old bottle of somewhat rustic Rhone origins.

Not even ten months since my last bottle, and the forward fruit that this wine featured in the past has receded considerably. This is now awkward, with the fruit in retreat and the tannins showing very dry. The 15.5% alcohol is also noticeable. I suspect that this wine's best days are in the past, rather than it being in some awkward, funky period from which a mature and complex and better wine will emerge. Back in NYC after Scotland.

Well evolved in terms of colour. On the nose not much fruit, a hint of dried fruit maybe, forest notes, spices, slightly barnyardy at first. On the palate bright acidity, spicy, again not much fruit. Decent length but pretty tart and drying finish. Past its peak based on this bottle - drink up. 86-87

Nice, clear garnet color; on the opening – mild nice nose of strawberries and Herbes de Provence.
Light body, almost watery; very unbalanced palate, too much acidity and too low on tannins and alcohol, a bit harsh aftertaste.
After two hours - less fruits on the nose, little bit improved palate, but overall still very disappointing for 2006 CdP.

Fully mature, lovely sour cherry, silky, wonderfully integrated. The fruit has faded, leaving a bright, leathery wine with notes of a beef-cherry reduction. Not complex nor profound, just lovely, satisfying drinking.

Excellent showing, much better than the bottle I had a couple of months ago. Very expressive nose, with some floral and peppery overtones. Purple color with very little cloudiness and just a modest amount of sediment. Tasted of ripe black fruits with some nice earthiness and minerality, silky and balanced, with a medium long finish. In a peak zone, probably not going to get much better, but should be able to stay in a good spot for a while longer.

Honey, beeswax, pear, quince, lanolin, cashew. Good richness. The acidity is waning, the finish is abrupt. Solid wine.

Double decanted about 2 hours in advance, served blind. Bottled corked.

Second bottle pulled from cellar, popped and poured. Deep garnet in colour with a slight brick. On the nose, this was a touched reduced with a rubbery element noted, this blew off to some degree over time, revealing the underlying kirsch liqueur, baked blackberries, anise and a touch of wood. There is quite a bit of heat on the nose noted, making this rather unpleasant to take in. The palate is similar, with high ripeness and extraction, showing sweet black fruits, licorice, and spice. Finishes moderate and quite hot. Overall, not a pleasant drink and outclassed by a number of wines this evening.

A beautiful bottle of mature CNDP that would have great appeal to Burgundy fans. Gave this a short decant and the aromatic profile was classic old world with a good amount of Garrigue. The texture was silky smooth and the wine had a beautiful lightness to it while at the same time full of flavor and good balance and tension. Almost old Volnay like in character this would be a good ringer to bring to a Burgundy event. Held out well on gas for night 2. impressive especially for the vintage. While i don't see it getting better this will probably drink very well for several more years.

Medium dark ruby. Meaty aromas of wild cherry and pepper. Mostly Grenache, showing cherry, ripe raspberry, plum, pepper, and smoke. Rich and powerful. Holds up well to big flavorful meats.

Decanted for an hour plus. Delicious and in its prime drinking window now. Didn't take more detailed notes, but a nice southern Rhone that doesn't have overpowering alcohol.

We have numerous 2000 and 2001 ChdP. This has consistently been one of the Bette, including vs. Beaucastel, Clos des Papes, etc. this was no exception. No sign of brick or tiredness. Great ChdP earthy nose, but not funky, and color still solid. In the mouth, very smooth and perfect balance of dark fruit, earthiness, garrigue. Great finish, and while drinking perfectly, no sign it's headed down. Only two left!

Tasting delicious.
I would say drink now, however.
It is very close to peaking although still on the younger side.

I write this note only to say it is a very nice bottle of wine. I have had since release. A classic chateaunef de pape. This is why you buy a wine and hold. Why do I buy bordeaux!

Very funky nose and pretty good fruit on the palate, but overall not well integrated. It is drinking well now though as we popped and poured.

Found this in my cellar. I had not been entered in CellarTracker. It must have been a gift, but I can't remember from whom or when it was received. Clear dark garnet. Nose of leather, cherry, plum, and a hint of anise. Ripe, fruit-forward palate of black cherry, plum, and prune. Good length. Pleasant acidity. Minimal tannins. No discernable oak. Overall, this was a simple, quaffable CdP, not structured for aging.

Round and big. Powerful with lot of ripe fruits. Full body and long finish. The tannins are smooth but a bit drying. Still on the primary side but really delightful right now. I recomend 1 hour of decanting. At under 40 an incredible QP ratio

Deep lemony but in very good condition.
Typical Rhone white aromas of quince, a little nutty, floral and slightly honeyed. Nice smooth texture and good finish.

This was bottle decent, but not as good as a couple of others I have had over the past year or so. The color was purple and a bit cloudy. Nose was ok. Smooth on the palate with some black fruit and a touch of structure. This particular bottle was a bit past its peak.
