  • One of my first disappointing 2010 CDP's. This is all gloss and doesn't show much character. While nothing technically wrong, it shows no sense of place at all.

  • The nose was bursting with ripe black cherry, blackberry, cinnamon, dark floral tones, and hints of wild herbs. On the palate, it was incredibly rich, yet balanced with ripe dark fruits, spice, savory dark broth and a slight bitter twang. Dried red fruit saturated the senses throughout the finish with a slight rich soil and herb tone. Darker, richer and more detail; this wine has come along nicely with a year in the cellar.

  • Tasted over 2 nights. Liked the first night better where the fruit was pure with a coffee undertone. Night two was bitter with alcohol coming to the foreground I didn't notice on the first evening.

  • I'm sure this is will be a really fine wine in 3-7 years time, but I'm not sure why one should wait. It's seriously good today, completely open and ooozing of cherries, red currant, chrushed stone galore, signature garrigue, a licorice twist and subtle nori/seaweed. acidity is absolutely brilliant, the wine has power but doesn't carry any extra weight. Beautiful with food and a lovely companion when contemplating things during a warm summer evening. 91-ish.

  • It took a good amount of time to finally open (try day #2) so I'm on the fence as to whether it's starting to close down at this time. A very modern style, not overripe but definitely on the "rich and flamboyant" side for CdP. A dark, luxuriant fruit characteristic, with blackberry, some pruniness and subtle bitter expresso flavors. Tannins were a bit rough, but complimented the fruit. Wonderfully nuanced finish as well that went on for some time. I was impressed with the quality of the winemaking, especially for a general cuvee. Hopefully it will open up again in a few years if indeed it has now closed down.
