    November 12, 2016 - From a bottle purchased upon release and cellared in pristine fashion, this medium garnet wine is very impressive. Now 17 years old, it flaunts complex aromas and flavors of dark plums, pipe tobacco, loamy earth, leather and baking spices. Medium-bodied, freshly acidic, seamlessly alcoholic (14%) and with soft residual tannins, it is in a distinctly different but equally enjoyable place than it was when last tasted several years ago. Gaining traction on the mid-palate and finishing long, this is a Châteauneuf that has aged ever so gracefully. Those holding well-cellared bottles should find it to be delicious for at least 3-4 more years. Drink now-2020.

    November 5, 2016 - Extremely elegant, with lovely vegetal notes. A light(ish) CdesP which is completely ready. Delicious

    October 29, 2016 - Brisket Bash Deux: 10 Vintage Vertical of Clos de Papes and more (Siggy & Jenny's Place, Mpls, MN): Dark red color. PNP, drank 1 glass over 20-30 minutes. Drank as part of a vertical of Clos des Papes (95, 98, 99, 00, 01, 04, 05, 06, 08, 09). My second favorite of the flight. This has great fruit, red to dark red,, good concentration, very balanced, nice tannins, and silky texture that stands out; earth, refined.

    August 21, 2016 - Pretty musty on opening (but not TCA), this really didn't hit its stride until Day 2, when it showed a decidedly middleweight, elegant expression of CdP. No jam-packed fruit or blazing alcohol, this showed strawberry fruits, smoke, and spice in an understated, but no less compelling, fashion. If this is what "off vintage" CdP is like, I need to find more like it!
