Very disappointing. Just not much of anything going on with this wine. No nose and no distinct characteristics to say "I'm from ChnP". Even on day two not any better. Not sure what to expect from the rest of these bottles.
(le vin a passé 3 heures en carafe): 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah et 10% Mourvèdre de vignes de 65 à 125 ans d`âge. Là on jase! Ample, dense et complexe. Un beau fruit juteux avec un beau boisé maitrisé…long et élégant. Jeune certes mais tout est là. Excellent!
Deep, rich purple with long, slow legs. Nose of spice, herb, earth/soil, licorice. Flavor of blackberry, raspberry, black cherry, tea, hints of aged tobacco and smoke. Lots of oak. Medium-full body, coarse with very firm tannins, lingering big, tannic finish.
To judge this wine at this point is impossible. It has great potential, all the cdp fixin's. I think the low score was possibly a bad bottle because this wine which was enjoyed by many "in the know" and was loved.
