    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!

    May 23, 2016 - This was spectacular! Lots of concentrated red fruit and spice. Had some earthy elements going on and great balance with a firmly acidic finish. Everything seemed to be in balance with this bottle.

    May 20, 2016 - Birthday Celebration Chateauneuf-Du-Papes (Bill's, Wilmette IL): Nose: This was just rearing to go, but in a more funky perfumed way with black cherries, violets, garrigue, kirsch, funk notes, potpourri, mesquitte smoke, and hot stones. There was a good amount of layering and depth that just constantly drew you into the glass.

    Taste: Medium bodied with medium acidity and silky tannins. The feel is polished, poised, and refined with black cherries, violets, potpourri, mesquitte smoke, funky notes, raspberries, and hot stones.

    Overall: This was a gorgeous Clos Des Papes. This is in its pomp right now with a perfumed and refines style to it.

    April 23, 2016 - Occasional dinner group; A vertical of 15 vintages Clos des Papes and some great extra's. (@ B in SvG): This is a great and beautifully mature wine now with in the bouquet red berries, garrigue, minerals, smoke, tobacco and a pleasant touch of barnyard. On the palate still ripe red berry fruits, garrigue, earth, beautiful acidity and still slightly sticky, very good tannin. Great length! A wonderful wine to drink now and the next 3+ years.

    January 18, 2016 - Cupo granato. Il naso rapisce, con sensazioni di legno di rosa e sandalo, amarena matura, pepe, appena accennata tapenade, carne arrostita, bergamotto, bello e netto. Bocca piena, elegante, giovanissima e lunghissima. Entusiasmante
