This has the "Tapit" label of this wine. 30 minute slow ox. Has a medium-dark purple-garnet in colour. Nose of sweet black plums and cassis with some blueberries. On the palate, blackberries and dark unsweetened mocha are noticed right away with a touch of dark tobacco; tannins are hardly evident. Medium bodied with a medium finish.

Pnp through a vinturri. Medium ruby in colour. Nose of semi crushed red berries with some ripe plums with a hint of herbs. On the palate, there are blackberries with some earthy and graphite profile at the end. Light-medium body with a medium finish. I've had the regular CdR Reserve of the same vintage and compared to this, they're almost even with this one having a little more definition. Makes me wonder which cuvee has more grenache in them(I guess the former).

On the palate, there are ripe raspberries with some syrup of candied cherries along with some garrigue and black fruits in the end. Medium+ bodied with a medium+ finish.

Pnp through a vinturri. Medium garnet/light brick red in colour. Nose has some funk that blew off after a few minutes revealing a red fruit minerality akin to smelling a wet cinder block that has been doused with strawberry juice with some hints of tobacco. On the palate, some peppery, spiced, earthy red fruits with some leather are noticed. Medium bodied with a short-medium finish.

On the palate, there are spicy, peppery black cherries with some dark green herbs and a hint of licorice at the end. Medium bodied with a medium+ finish.

Pnp from a magnum. Medium purple-violet in colour. Nose of dark cherries and plums with some garrigue. Palate-wise, there are brambly and peppery black plums and cherries along with some hints of red stone fruits and touches of dark chocolate at the end. Medium bodied with a medium finish. Surprised how this seems to be open for business right now, even for a magnum. Great qpr.

An hour decant time. Medium ruby-garnet in colour. Getting dark plums with some woody cassis and dark fresh tobacco on the nose; a slight green hint is noticed as well. The tannic palate is getting blackberries and black cherries and some espresso and tobacco notes. Medium bodied with a medium finish. Let this calm down for a few years in the cellar. Interesting history of this domaine.

On the palate, there are some sour maraschino cherries and semi sweet raspberries with some underbrush; slight hint of minerality. Light-medium bodied with a short+ finish.
