2000 Bosquet des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Chante Le Merle Vieilles Vignes

Red Rhone Blend more

5/25/2015 - liber Likes this wine: 93 points

10th of 12, previous bottles very good to fine plus but one corked, not decanted - deepish, glossy brick red, little development; very attractive and integrated bouquet tending to floral and damson and black cherry with a little truffle and sous bois but no obvious grenache pepper or mourvedre sweaty saddle; medium full, glossy/velvety for CdP, old vine depth and length, very persistent and classy, best bottle yet! Fine plus (18/20).

Red Wine Tasting Party - Opened an hour before tasting. No decant. Initially, aromas of barnyard funk with hints of dark berries. After swirling and air, the aromas changed to saline like qualities (reminded me of seaweed on the beach). Delicious but still young. Dark red and purple berries. Full bodied and plush. Soft and silky with a long finish! 14.5% alcohol content still shows.

Contrary to the very open Barroche Pure, this wine is (already) quite locked, but the bouquet shows red and dark forest fruits, garrigue and white pepper. Same on the palate with beautiful acidity, firm tannin and a long, sweet finish. It is quite easy to taste the potential in this wine. 96++ for tonight, but around 2022 and 2025 this wine will really shine. 98+ almost definitely. Unfortunately no bottles in my cellar, but I hope my friend have some….

Concentrated bouquet with a lot of dark forest fruits and beautiful garrigue. Same on the palate. Perfectly ripe fruits, a beautiful balance between sweetness and acidity and soft still very youthful tannin. Still in its open and youthful stage this wine is very close to perfection. Around 2020 or a bit later it might score the perfect 100. For now 98 - 99+ Have a few, so there will be a follow up, but probably not before 2018 or 2019.

Nose of mushroom, blackberry, and liquorice. Medium-light in body, with nice acidity but slightly out of balance alcohol (14.5% per label). Long, earthy finish. Drink now through 2018.

This is one minerally driven CnP...
Warm stones, damp earth with some ripe black berries.
Loads of minerality on the palate, high acidty, weakish tannins.
Nice purity of fruit here; high pitched, almost jellied red fruit, but also some figs, plums. Long long aftertaste. Delicious savory notes. Garrigue herbs. Structured, yet balanced and elegant…
Alcohol is somewhat present in the finish, but totally in control…
Great value for a CnP

Fruit, pepper, herbs (lavender, sage, bay, rosemary), garrigue, violets, rust, dustiness, minerals, and smoke on the bouquet. The wine drinks like it smells, adding notes of baking spices and enhanced fruitiness. Medium acid, light to medium tannin, balanced. This somewhat modern CdP cannot hide its Old World roots. Highly enjoyable! Drinking very well now and should continue to through 2022+.

The wine features an attractive bouquet of red and dark berries, plum, kirsch, spice, ash, sous-bois, moss, flint, cured meats, iron, and hints of smoke. Deftly-crafted and harmonious, the wine drinks like it smells, adding a saline element. Medium plus acid, medium tannin, with appealing texture imparting a sense of viscosity, pleasantly gripping, quite long. Great overall balance, no angularities, even the 15 percent abv seemed unobtrusive. By no means a flamboyant blockbuster, this seductive wine shows off the appellation's sleek and stylish side. Remarkably approachable and well integrated, it is probably in an early drinking window. Drink by 2025-2028+.

No detailed notes, but one of the best high-end 2010 Chateauneuf bottles I've opened to this point. Yes it is young, but after a few hours' decant everything is in such a good place - texture, depth, structure are all incredibly rewarding and impressive.

45 minute decant. Excellent wine that improved in the glass. Ripe with black cherries, blackberry, prune, and hints of licorice with slight leather on the back end. Balance, texture and nose were classic CdP with a pleasant lasting finish. Just now approachable 2015 - 2029.

Decanted several hours before drinking. Lovely purple-ruby colour, awesome nose of black fruits, spices and wood. On the palate, glossy and layered, with waves of sweet fruit and flavour. The air did the wine a lot of good. Drinking now.

Nez intéressant sur la confiture de framboise. Un mélange de fruits murs et épice avec un petit côté fumé. Encore une belle acidité mais à mon avis le vin est très intéressant à boire maintenant. Bu en même temps qu'un vieux télégraphe du même millésime et la veille julienne était plus rafinée et plus complexe.

Colour showing some age but not a lot.
Nose well rounded, savoury, some maturity but still generous fruit (grenache +).
Palate very good mouth filling and intensity. Some tannin at back. A year or two might diminish it, but it does add to the mouth feel. Although it has a reasonably high alcohol level (14.5% according to the label) the wine carries the alcohol well, so the impression is not hot.
