  • Popped and poured. Light ruby. Nuanced nose of sour cherry and menthol with a hint of herbs. Seemed to me more like an old cote rotie than a chateauneuf du pape. Very soft, as the tannins have completely melted away. The acidity and alcohol are just beginning to dominate, so i would drink sooner rather than later.

  • A terrific mature CdP with very classic old Beaucastel aromas. Medium ruby color with little bricking. Big nose of cherry, menthol and dried herbs and a slightly wild/gamey Bandol-type characteristic. There is some warmth, but it's in check. Very, very sweet on the midpalate with excellent density and a lingering sweet finish that is a bit Ruby Port-like. A fascinating wine that is still holds on to its identity even at this mature age.
