    December 20, 2021 - Spectacular CdP. Delicate yet intense nose of plums, cherries, even roses. The mid-palate is an explosion of fruits - but in a very harmonious way that goes hand in hand with the balanced acidity and the oaky notes on the ending that shows integrating tannins and developing notes of forest floor and tobacco. My first Clos does Papes - and certainly not the last!

    December 14, 2021 - 刚开瓶有樱桃酱、樱桃利口酒、黑莓、蓝莓和葡萄味芬达的果味,伴随着略妖艳的紫花香,中后段开始有些橄榄、桉树和肉味,微微带一点浑浊的巧克力味以及奶油味,整体比较开放。入口酸度较高,单宁量中,先是光滑,随后转粉质,酒体中。主要时黑樱桃、蓝莓之类的果味,比起嗅觉要透亮一些,整体还比较紧锁,还有皮革、烟草、花瓣之类的味道,中后段有些植物气息。瓶醒一个小时之后,口中的果味展开了,红黑相间的果味和花香,化作具有精致且整体感的流动。91-92/100

    October 24, 2021 - I rarely drink C9dP but was curious to see how the 2013 vintages was in the Southern Rhone Valley as I was expecting cooler weather characteristics as in Bordeaux and Burgundy. Pnp and drank over two days. The wine is quite elegant, particularly on day 2 with more red than dark fruit, an almost confectionary like sweetness on the attack, glycerin, quite aromatic, fine to medium tannins.
    Nice wine - the only thing I do not understand is why such a cooler vintage style from C9dP in 2013 has to come with 15% alc. Are there really wine drinkers who would not prefer this kind of wine with 13% or 13.5% alcohol instead?

    October 7, 2021 - Boozy nose of kirsch and red roses. Tangy black cherry fruit with a light cacao backbone, adding quartz and mace as it quickly flows into a finish of smooth elongated tannins, vanilla bean, and coconut flake, quickly drying out into old oak.
