  • Clos des Papes Vertical (Tribeca Grill): A stunning wine. The nose was ethereal and full of mature nuance of wild mushrooms, truffles and herbs overlying a bed of raspberries. The palate was exceptionally delicate with earthy wild raspberries framed on the entry and finish by garrigue. The finish also showed a touch of spiciness. With no noticable tannin, the fruit lulled quietly along on string of acidity. While others remarked that the finish was short, I could not disagree more. I found a sneaky persistance to the wine that I believe owed a debt to the acidic structure. The thing I loved about this wine was the quiet self-assurance it showed. Whereas many of the later wines shouted to you, this one made you lean in to hear a whisper.

  • Clos des Papes Vertical (Tribeca Grill, NYC): Purchased off the wine list by the group. This wine was recently acquired at auction. Rusty red in color with a deep and powerful nose. Wonderful mid palate but the finish was too abrupt. Tons of acidity and notes of red fruit and truffles. If I had this blind I might have guessed an older Burgundy. So much fun to drink this wine. Mine didn't last long but others let it sit and it quickly died with air. What a treat to taste this.
