    June 22, 2016 - I loved Cuvée Chaupin of the same vintage, but didn't really enjoy this one. Too hot, stewed and plump. Contrary to what I expected - serving it colder than usual only made it worse. Earthy, overripe, burnt fruit on the nose and palate. Sweetish but without balancing accidity and no freshness. It was more or less ok shortly after opening, but went downhill afterwards. It was quite decent when paired with strawberries - somwhow this pairing worked.

    May 1, 2016 - Lovely nose of garrigue, earth, red fruits and smoke. Deep red colour, not much sign of age. Choclatey tannins, herbs, liqueured red fruits on the palate and the structure for further development. The only downside for me was slightly too much alcoholic sweetness. Overall, high quality CdP.

    October 23, 2015 - Elegant and balanced. Liquid flowers. One of the best '04 CdPs so far for me.

    September 6, 2015 - Still young and fresh tasting, not as earthy as some CdP wines, but lovely nonetheless

    (Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes) Intriguing vanilla and savory nose; nice rich plum, black fruit, tar and pepper palate with juice and a little heat; medium-plus finish
