  • This a very balanced and food-friendly CdP. Medium (+) ruby with some garnet on the rim. The nose is clean and still developing, with ripe red fruit and black fruit and little earthiness. The palate is dry and consistent with the nose, but with both tart and ripe fruit. The acidity and tannins are medium. The alcohol is medium (+) to high (at $14%) but not really out of balance. The body, flavor intensity and length are medium (+). It actually paired very well with a grilled peppered tuna steak with roasted potatoes and Provencal herbs. It is definitely in its optimal drinking window now and - although it could certainly age for several more years - I would be inclined to drink it in the shorter term.

  • Much fresher than the 7/6/15 bottle but still exhibited a somewhat roasted character. Nicely silky and thick on the palate.

  • Right up the middle here, recognizable CdP funk, core purple fruit and rocks. Nice balance. Not a wow wine, but drinking well and food friendly. At 10 years in a nice spot where the fruit is still playful but the structure and tannins are in balance. No pronounced secondary flavors yet.

  • Prototypical CnP, straddling the line between traditional and modern. Resolved tannins, black raspberry and plum aromas and flavor. A hint of garrigue adds interest - very well done.

  • Good balance with a bit of complexity. Should have a couple of more years of life. A very good entry level CNP.
