I think I may be at the end of my Ch√Ęteauneuf-du-Pape rope. I've tried so many different CDP's and none of them match my palate that well. I know there are a ton of people out there that love their CDP's and the 2007 vintage is being sold as an epic one, but there's something just off for me. It could be the overall fragility of the wines or the fruit or the funk I sometime get, but, overall, CDP's just leave me empty. Not enough mouthfeel or finish. So, probably not going to give any CDP a high rating, at least for my palate. This one is perfectly fine - feels well balanced, fruit is tasty and there are some good Christmas spice notes, but, overall, just leaves me wanting more. If there are any suggestions on a CDP that I must try, let me know, but, for now at least, I'll probably give up the ghost on CDP.
