It's okay. Has the proper parts, but none of the pizzazz. Hoped for more...

From half bottle. Opened & left to rest for like 1 hour.
Herbs, light red fruits, touch of spice. Feels young, a touch dry at times and with a bit of feeling of heat on the palate. Definitely a lot more expressive than 6 months ago (Papies 88). Feels about right but maybe a bit more time will help it evolve more. 89

4th bottle of 2005 vintage. All the bottles were bad or showing oxidation and bitter notes at 10 years time. Will not buy Vieux again.

Turning brick red on rim but still dark purples and reds. Fresh - doesn't taste 20 years old! Balanced fruit, round mouthfeel, little bit of leather and earth and very gorgeous long finish.

Cellared since release, perfect cork and fill. Cherry, red berries, clean earth on the nose right from the start, a bit of leather and iodine come out over time, med-full body, well balanced, drinking well now but wouldn't be surprised to see more complexity in 5 more years, excellent.

Allemand, Jamet, Burgs, Barolo, Yquem, and more: Herbs, a little earth, and savory fruit, a lovely classic Chateauneuf that only shows the vintage in a little sweetness on the back.

Pulled the cork and pretty much ready to drink. However, definitely showed it's true character after being open for an hour.

Lovely mature wine, everything in it's place without a sharp point anywhere. Oozes class and offers plenty of interest. Delicious.

Nicely mellow. A touch of the south, but controlled. Restraint over power. Possibly a little dry on the finish, but it rounds out and smooths with air. Lovely. ****

Mid red with little maturity. Beautiful nose, restrained persistent almost Burgundian , layers of flavour. Very elegant and pure ,in the zone but years ahead of it. Stylish and moreish.

Showing great, pure class! Silky, almost no signs of age, ethereally light yet concentrated. Yum. Brambly earth, juicy dark cherry.

Decanted for a good hour or so. Bricking at the edges. Gamey, with raw meat tones, farmyard, burnt toast. Still a good deal of astringency. Still feels unbalanced to me, can't pin it down exactly. Have rated earlier bottles similarly lowly.

Garnet with faded rim. All garrigue-lavender and mint, predominantly. Medium weight, cool, greener elements also are most prominent in the mouth. It's interesting that you feel more than taste the remaining red fruit and a touch of fig. Good acidity and completely resolved tannin. My last bottle of this-very good but definitely time to ring the bell.

Note from memory - Brick red color, aromas of herb and earth. Dark fruit leather and garrigue in the finish. Drinking well, much better than last bottle, would not keep significantly longer in a good mature place now.

WS originally rated this 95 (#5 in Top 100 Wines of 2008) & it still exemplifies an amazing wine. Dense & chewy, but not tiring to drink due to fresh acidity & edgy, gravelly feel driving blackberry, currant & sweet spice notes. Long finish w/ briary grip, w/ notes garrigue & hot stone. This has many more years to go...

Oh so pale--green rather than even yellow let alone gold. Is there bottle variation or are we talking different cellars (though my bottles have been consistent). No heat. Delicate lemon verbena nose. Lacks obvious presence or complexity but I think this is a bit of a stealth wine. I'll be interested in what good bottles have to say in 10 years time.

More of a personal note / reminder, but the wine was about where I'd expect it to be at age 10. The tight coil has loosed quite a bit over the past several years and the wine can now be enjoyed with a meal. This particular bottle will easily hold another 10 years and improve for at least another 5. Hold for five more years if you prefer VT on the smooth cherry liquor side of things, which I do.

Deep dark reddish-violet garnet in color; almost opaque with some very slight clearing at the edges. Full, forward, fragrant & attractive nose of complex ripe fruits aromas of dark cherries, blackberries & plums with lovely floral overtones of violets & lavender & earthy notes, cedar, classic kirsch and garrigue notes, dried Provencal herb notes, licorice, peppery, mint, dusty, leather & minerals. Medium-full to full bodied with a very good concentration of well balanced, silky smooth textured, complex, lush, ripe fruit flavors of sweet cherries, blackberries & dark plums with spices, herbs, anise/tar, dark cocoa, earthy & minerals. Long lingering smooth finish. Drinks quite well at present with decanting & airing, but has the potential to continue further development with additional aging.

Much better than the last bottle (hot, roasted). This one is fruit dominated as in ripe, sweet fruit, however the acidity and tannins are in balance so it drinks well so far. Only just opened. I don't want to look at the % alcohol but my guess is 14.5 - 15% ish
