Not enough here to crack the 90 points. A Chateauneuf that feels more like a simple CDR.

I was expecting more much from this as the 2007 was quite good.

Absolutely fantastic wine. The purity and freshness of the fruit is out of this world.

Nose: I was expected a power fruit forward nose but I got a very refined and precise nose made up of sweet plum, minerality and guarrigue for the most part. beautiful

palate: Again ...very refined altought powerfull. The tannin were sweet and were adding to the complexity of this wine. The fruit profile mirror the nose.

Fantastic wine !! A gem !

Much imroved from last time I tasted this wine. Pretty much the same structure and a little bitter in the finish which is associate with the difficult vintage of 2007.

2/10/2013 - Ben Paquet Likes this wine: 87 points

Very nice QPR at $18

Nose: OK we did not decant so the wine felt a little oaky and jammy, but still retains some bordeaux character with plum, pencil shaving and darf fruits.

Palate: Again, a little oaky but nonetheless quite interesting for the price. Nice splash of Plum and pencil shaving. The mid-palate is a little watery but the final is bone dry with quality tannins.

Lovely and very good QPR.

Fantastic Napa Cab Franc. Reminescent of a good quality High percentage Cab Franc St-Emilion.

Nose: Liquorice, plum, dark fruits, iron, violet and dust

Palate: Beautiful kick of dark fruits, liquorice, menthol and dust in the entrance. Then, some aged fruits and flower along with new leather comes in. The final is still tannic but fine grained and sweet.

Great Wine !

We all loved it !

Very very young !!!

Nose: Powerfull splash of red and drak fruits. Oaky. Some flowers as well.

Palate: Wow! this is full bodied. Maybe too much ! Very good fruit profile but a little oaky and the tannins are still young and intrusive. This will age well given the nice fruit up front and the refreshing acidity.

Very nice wine but way too young.

Not a bad sauterne but a little simple even for its age. It also lacked a proper finish.

Palate: Orange marmelade, tropical fruit and a little bit of spice a the end.

Not bad but far from great.
