  • Châteauneuf-du-Pape session (Extra Space): Tasted blind. My own bottle. Pop and poured. Drank over 2 hours.
    Appearance is clear, medium intensity, ruby colour. Legs.
    Nose medium+ intensity, with a touch of brett, and aromas of earth, garrigue, animal, licorice, spice, dark red cherries, sweet herbs with more air. Developed.
    On the palate, dry, vibrant high acidity, medium+ alcohol (14.5%), smooth rounded high tannins, full body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of earth, garrigue, animal, licorice, spice, ripe dark red cherries, cranberry, Provencal herbs. Long finish.
    Outstanding quality. Very complex and complete. This is what aged CDP should aspire towards. Just edged out the 1998 Clos des Papes CDP by a bit. Enjoy now, and over the next 3-4 years.
    85% Grenache, 5% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre and 5% Vaccarèse.
    The average age of the vines are 60 years.
    No destalking of the grapes. Maceration period 15-20 days.
    Foudres or barrels are not used. Vinification and ageing in traditional cement vats.

  • Fully mature, aromas of fresh, Provencal herbs, black cherry, licorice and wet earth pop with little effort. Lush, silky and fresh, the kirsch finish carries through.

  • PNP with friends in restaurant....some brett, but very nice and better with time as it opened and stuff blew off....people liked it very much...I didn't get much, but classic old school.

  • Popped, breathed in bottle two hours, consumed over next two. This bottle performed like a champ, with wonderful aromatics and the show continued on the palate, singing from the first sips, evolving in the glass and offering up a finely knit tapestry of ever-changing nuance. Lovely balance, translucent ruby/garnet, wonderful intensity and an elegant, lengthy and expanding finish.
