Dégustation horizontale Châteauneuf du Pape 2001 (La Caverne de Collin): Sans note prise, je garde le souvenir d'un vin frais, au nez fruité et poivré, à la bouche assez gourmande dans un style précoce. Surpris de l'appellation au dévoilement, il me paraissait plus léger. Bien et agréable, mais sans grande profondeur. 88 pts

Decanted and started drinking. I was a bit surprised to hear this was closed as the nose was really intense. Lots of underbrush, dark fruit, coffee, meaty notes. Great acidity and fairly soft and long finish. This was good from start to end.

Drinking very nicely. The nose is wonderfully complex. If I were scoring just the nose I would be in the low to mid 90s on this. The palate is quite good, though a slight bitterness on the finish. I don't think these will last too much longer, but still quite delicious. I would never have guessed that this would have lasted 17 years or more.

The fruit has racheted down since my last bottle in 2011, bringing out more tannin and acidity. Liked this more with the lusher fruit as this style does not lend itself so well to creating a classic ager as it lacks the elegance and complexity that you look to get over time.

Day 1 Olive and blueberry, sweet basil and other fine herbs. Backwards on the palate for the first hour, tannin then fruit. That changes slightly over a few hours. Very tiny ripe blackberries muddled in stone, wet earth, grippy tannic bite, and smoke.
Excellent old world example
Day2 has smoothed this wine considerably. mix of dark berries and exotic apple.
excellent

Medium garnet-red, pale-edged. Wicked good "country" wine nose: dust, leather, mushroom, black pepper, tar, menthol, hint of cranberry juice and was that a wet dog. On arrival, low tannin and sharp acidity; makes your teeth squeaky clean. Worked plenty well with duck terrine, fruit and rich cheeses, but this one definitely needed the fat alongside to enjoy. From our neighbor's collection.

Big, delicious full-bodied red from old vines. Considerable sediment. Paired well with sirloin steak. Would pair with game, lamb, etc. Not as 'oaky' as the first bottle, just big and lush due to the old vines, mostly. What a joy...

Le Sang des Cailloux Vacqueyras has long been a favorite of mine. The 2012, however, is admittedly too young (a condition complicated by my lack of a wine cellar where I'm currently staying). On the upside, delicate floral notes of lilac and violets lend a softening note to an otherwise masculine wine. There are, too notes of black cherries, blackberries, incense, sandalwood and loamy earth. Medium-bodied, with good concentration and power, there is an iron ore note that leaves the finish metallic-seeming.

Major barnyard funk dominates, taking a good hour to blow off. Once that settles down, this is a rich, spicy, complex wine that is fun to drink and a nice accompaniment to food.

What an interesting wine with lots of changing in the glass. At first zesty and ripe with grenache fruit character and earth, then tarry and meaty with syrah notes coming to the front. A lot of back and forth. I'm guessing best to drink in the near to midterm.

Perfectly a point now. A lovely mix of dark fruits with liquorice, and dark chocolate. Great balance. Enjoyed by all the 12 who tried them; sadly they enjoyed them so much all 5 bottles were finished and I have no more to worry if they are still in their drinking window!

Good solid Grenache based wine. Lots of fruit on the nose with hints of herbs and garrigue. The palate is rich with dark fruit, but maintains nice acidity to keep it balanced. Very tasty, but not super complex.

If last night's bottle was representative (purchased on release), this is getting a little long in the tooth as the acids seem to be having the upper hand on the fruit. Granted, I just did a PnP, and probably should have decanted one hour, but it was served during one of the many holiday weekend dinner parties at the house this weekend and was drained in no time by those that had been at it a while...so decanting wasn't necessary according to the well-watered guests. 14,0% abv (fully integrated).
