    November 14, 2019 - Utah. Certainly ripe, but well balanced, and somehow manages to be elegant and "typical" CdP at the same time. A good time to drink it.

    July 27, 2019 - PnP at a restaurant and ready to go without decanting. Still fruit forward, but not as much as earlier bottles, and the structure is fading as the tannic backbone has receded more. Agree this is on the downhill slope now, so I would drink fairly soon. Being 100% Grenache, this is higher in alcohol and fruit than I like, and prefer more typical cuvees with syrah, mouvedre, etc.

    May 14, 2019 - Still very nice but starting to show some age. Glad I finished it.

    April 14, 2019 - Good balance for a concentrated and big CdP. I suspect it's poised to start going downhill.

    November 2, 2018 - The first thing I noticed was the unexpectedly dark ruby color from this fourteen-year-old Chaupin, which ran from its core to the rim. On the nose, I found an inviting mix of rich cherry compote, brown spices, tobacco leaf and hints of dusty earth. It was velvety and rich on the palate, yet it maintained a wonderfully fresh personality, as the wine seemed to glide effortlessly across the senses, showing notes of sweet blackberry, fig, lavender, violets and milk chocolate. Its tannins were fully resolved, yet the acidity remained perfectly balanced, enveloped by the wine’s body, creating an amazing textural experience. The finish was shorter than I’d hoped, with the slightest sensation of heat, yet still displaying a flurry of purple florals and dark fruits before tapering off. The ‘04 Chaupin is fully mature, yet showing no sign of decline. That said, I wouldn’t wait much longer on any bottles still in the cellar
