I can't get on with this wine. It is now yielding itself which is a plus - typical aromas of Southern Rhone reds - but for me it is undone by a bitter twist at the end. Is this the alcohol? A little too stern for me. I wonder where the love is.

splash decanted and was delicious but not great depth. Red and black fruits and some tar and wet earth but no funk or nonsense. After an hour more juicy and darker core. Then with lamb ... Came alive and sat up straight like matron had snapped. Really delicious and a good food wine, not too imposing or loud.

Probably should have been opened 2-3 years ago, brownish color and very tired but not over the hill completely.

Nose full of dark fruit and peppercorns. Yum. With time open it gained a black cherry nose and palate, quite juicy, but with tons of minerality and energy.

This was almost too much.. The structure of this wine means it should not be opened until 5 yrs at least. However, today you can get glimpses of its potential. Heavy, rich full with strong tannins that will do miracles in e few years time. Nose is packed with flavour: Fruit, leather and maybe tar. However, today its acidity and tannins will be too much for most people. Have bought a few to open in 2020, only then can this wine get a fair rating.

Lots of sweet, ripe red fruit in the mouth initially, then some garrigue (I think) and signs of underlying tannic backbone. This seemed mature to me.

A great tasting, full bodied, amazing legs wine. It opened and drank well but the second glass was even better as the wine continued to open up and the flavors began to burst.

Wonderful, starting with a fragrant alluring nose and moving to a slight sweetness that quickly transitions to a fruit forward, viscous long finish. Truly a wine worth every penny.

2007 Domaine de Fontavin Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Red Rhone Blend more

5/24/2015 - jlhkiss Likes this wine: 92 points

Opened and decanted 2.5 hours ahead of a garlic and herb pork roast with root veggies. Dark purple color with a red/violet hue. Concentrated nose brings a lovely bouquet of candied raspberries, strawberries, and especially blackberries - a nice red and black fruit combo - backed up by a potent black liquor cassis, garrigue, mint, and a powerful menthol herb mix. The palate is square, big on entry but medium on exit, bringing black Manhattan cherries, more ripe raspberries, only hints of dark fruit, and nice touches of black licorice and candied strawberries into the finish, which is dry, refined, and lengthy. Overall, drinking superbly now. Still a little on the hot side for my taste, but then again, it's been awhile since I've had a cDP and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Drink now - 2022.

- Brick color. It's in total harmony with a medium/full body. Smooth texture with a medium finish - Decanted for 90 min. Great CDP. Smooth from beginning to end. Solid fruit flavor a without the annoying tartiness. We had it with a variety of foods, including a hot salsa and a lamb dish. Wish I had more...

Much fruitier than our last bottle. This was mostly strawberry and maybe some other red fruits. It was kindof shut down at the beginning, but it blossomed into a much more fruit impactful wine although still very dry and interesting. I liked it.

Very curious. The nose smells a bit pruny and overripe to me, but the palate, though a bit hot, is nice, with a soft, velvety texture, dried cranberry and dried cherry flavors, and a nice snappy finish. Still, it's hard not to consider this wine flawed. No idea what it tasted like 10 years ago, but I'm...very curious.

5/24/2015 - SpoochMan Likes this wine: 92 points

Coravin taste. On the nose, lots of red fruit, along with garrigue, earth, and a hint of lavendar (?). On the palate, lively red and blue fruits, fruitcake, garrigue, and lots of earth/mineral on the long (but somewhat dirty tasting) finish. Some heat from the 15.5% alc, but got a bit better with air. It mellowed out a bit with 20-30 min of air and became a bit more accessible. This seems to be in its drinking window but with plenty of life left. Quite good, especially if you like the style. Note for future: K would probably NOT like this.

Even better now . it's easy and sophisticated , a great combination , and very well made. Just realized its more Mourvèdre than Grenache. Most innarestin. Sad it's the last one.
