    (Clos des Papes Châteauneuf du Pape) An incredibly good condition cork here, pale, solid and with no travel of colour up the sides at all. The colour is mature, but still with plenty of red pigment. Great meaty fruit on the nose, with leather, tobacco and game, and also the faintest hint of mushroom. Nicely textured at the start, still with a good substance despite its age. Full, bold, this is no shrinking violet. Indeed it shows quite a firm character in its build, with a solid backbone, and it is still showing some tannins, all ripe and velvety, with high-toned fruit nuances alongside, tinged with violets and sweetness. Great acidity too giving it a good frame in the mouth. Brighter than the meaty-fruit nose suggested, with elements of peach and aromatic fruit with it. A firm finish. Long although a little raw in terms of grip at the end, the ever-so-slightly disjointed alcohol showing through I think. This is unlikely to get any better from here I feel, although my data points on this estate, with bottles at this age at least, are limited I admit.
