    April 23, 2016 - Occasional dinner group; A vertical of 15 vintages Clos des Papes and some great extra's. (@ B in SvG): Beautiful bouquet with good fruits, garrigue, smoke and some toast. On the palate juicy red berry fruits like raspberries and also cherries. Good acidity and bitterness. The tannin is still a bit sticky and drying in the finish. A beautiful and elegant wine in its young maturity stage.

    January 16, 2016 - No detailed notes - from a magnum, this was short and dry. Quite a disappointment, though well-crafted. Very Good.

    January 16, 2016 - Popped and poured. This was tasty from the outset. The wine was medium bodied but rich and dense with glossy sweet fruit and classic CdP kirsch notes. On this day the wine was open and smooth. At this stage in my palate development I prefer CdP from leaner years as the fruit still comes across as rich to me without being over the top. This was quite enjoyable.

    January 9, 2016 - Excellent as before and slightly better than I remember. A lot of ripe plum, balanced, complex, and delicious.
