Nose: Pungent Blackberry and herbs. Complex, dark n brooding. Some funkyness (in a good way) on the nose matchning the fruit and acidity of the wine. Big, senusual and firm dark fruit, spices and hints of oak. Best chateauxneuf I had in years. Drinking well now but will last 5-10years of cellering.

don't know where to start with this amazing wine, beautiful ruby red color. perfectly balanced acid/tannins. its Powerful but still elegant. the nose is and explosion of redberries with hints of blackberry, pepper, tar violets and some tosted oak. the taste is just as amazing as the nose sweet redberries with streaks of dark fruit, pepper/herbs/bayleaf and some coffehints from the oak.

notes from memory: Deep dark almost black color, massive nose, sweet darkfruits, flowers and some funky/barnyardy notes. in the mouth the wine is big and bold but not heavy, nicely integrated tannins with a refreshing acidity.taste: loads of sweet dark fruits, apple peel, flowers and some crushed stones/barnyard'ish hints. great stuff

notes from memory: big and dark nose with blackberry blackpepper flowers (viola) hints of raspberry. in the mouth you get an medium body wine with nice fresh acidity loads of blackberry/raspberry, blackpepper & bayleaf.
some of the wine was poured into a halfbottle and stored in the fridge for a couple of days. the last half was really delicious. the wine had really come together, the acidity stepped back abit and made the spicy elements and some sweet fruit step forward. Im glad I have 3 more bottles + a magnum, this will be 93+ in a couple of years

big nose of blackberry, cherry, violets, bay leaf and hints of oak.
Clean fruity taste (bonedry not jammy fruit) dark fruits violets Cherry and hints of pepper/bayleaf + some very well intergrated oak. the wine was better on day 4 (stored in a halfbottle in the fridge) this one needs cellaring for a couple of years no doubt. good stuff

day one: fresh green apples, citrus and some honey... half of the bottle is poured into a halfbottle and stored in the fridge for 5 Days: the wine seems to have more body, still crisp with greenapples but less citrus and more honey/tropical fruit character. its really nice now, bur will probebly get better with age.

a rather powerfull nose: Cassis (with some red fruit thrown in), cedarwood, coffe, tobacco and oak. an elegant wine with sleak body but firm tannins (like bordeaux should be ;) taste not as powerfull as the nose but really nice, its drinking well now but will probebly age well for another 8-10 years. with the 07 vintage in mind this is excellent stuff.

black current, dark fruits and some coffe/oak on the nose. black current, plum and some nicely intergrated oak adding some luxurious coffee tones to the finish. there is an hint of greenishness to it (I guess its the vintage) but its not ruining the wine. its quite soft and ready to drink but will probebly last a few years more

Classic Mature Bordeaux nose: Cassis and barnyard.
Taste is dry, hints of Cassis, iron, leadpencil and barnyard. great stuff for around 35-40€ some more fruit wouldnt hurt but its no big problem.

Oak, oak and oak...My first Château d'Ampuis, Im guessing its completly shut down right now. only oak and some faint red fruit, aromas somewhat complex and the mouthfeel execellent. Five hours after opening it started to show some fruit but this needs alot of time. wait atleast five more years for this one. 85p now, but Guigal knows what he's doing so this probebly will turn out execellent some day.

fruity wine with hints of blackberries and strawberries and a spicy finish. quite powerfull but I would have liked some more Mourvedre in the blend (90% Grenache, 5% Mourvèdre, 5% Clairette) too beef it up some more. even so its a great wine.

My first Saint estephe: from what I heard about Montrose I expected more tannins but this is surpricingly smooth, just some tannins in the back. cool dark fruits and some cedar/herbs/pencil plus some nicely intergrated oak. if this Is what Ch. Montrose can do with a second wine in a off-vintage, then I cant imagine how good the first wine is in a good vintage.
