Community Tasting Notes 13

  • fingers Does not like this wine:

    February 27, 2019 - It seems the older I get, fewer and fewer CdP's float my proverbial boat and this is one of the many. It's a fair representation and well-crafted, but I feel like I can find this same enjoyment in many wines half the price. Open/closed, dumb/smart, who know's? But it's too much work to figure out. Gimme Clos or Beau... then we'll talk ;)

    October 9, 2017 - Consumed over two days. I'm not getting as much fruit as prior notes suggest. What there is, is dark rather than red. Nonetheless, I like this (if not at this price). Espresso, a hint of chocolate, spice, leather.

    May 28, 2016 - The wine is very good, but I expected better integration at this point. There were some excellent lavender and red cherry notes that clashed somewhat with some of the spicy tones on the palate. I enjoyed the wine, but perhaps it needs some more time in the bottle. Hold these for a couple years?

    December 24, 2015 - Consumed over the course of two days. Still a very, very young wine. If I had more bottles, I would not touch them for another five years.

    Classic CDP kirsch favors emerged on day two. Not sure it's worth the price of admission, low on the QPR scale.

    August 26, 2015 - A medley of dark red fruit, licorice, tea, forest floor, and charcoal. The nose is spectacular once you give this a couple of hours to open up. Deep & rich on the palate; a wine that draws you in emotionally. Take your time with it. The reviews from 2012 & 2013 found this in a closed/dumb phase. Give it another go now – its shining, and expect it to for many years.
