  • Pulled from 13C cellar for about 6hrs and BYO'd to restaurant. Brownish-purple color shows the 14 years age of the wine. On opening, robust fruit aromas, palate of fruit forward black fruits, med-full bod, not terribly complex, good finish. Showed better and gained some weight after about an hour of air in bottle, tannins appear on finish that's perfectly integrated and finish was longer. Very little (practically none) sediment.

    Very good wine overall, in mid-to-late drinking window, no need to wait any longer.

  • This bottle was a little different from the one I had a month ago. The color was purple, without much cloudiness. Expressive nose. Tasted fresher and had more fruit, a bit less complex, but a smoother finish. A nice CNP that is still in a pretty good place, but I would drink up.

  • Purple color and a bit cloudy. Pleasant nose, although a bit restrained. At first it tasted a bit tired and harsh. After about an hour it evolved into a nicely balanced, mature CNP. The wine is still in a good zone, but might be starting to slide from its peak.

  • Not decanted. The wine has a pale red/garnet hue in the glass with a slight, noticeable haze. The bouquet is moderately intense, dominated by red cherry and leather. The palate is very traditional in style, showing cassis, red cherry, leather and cigar box. There is a gamey, animal character to the wine. It is definitely showing advanced age and just beginning to come down from peak. Acidity is medium and overall the wine is balanced although a bit hot. Definitely best to drink in the next few years before the alcohol overpowers the rest of the components. I really like the moderately long, classic finish.
