    September 18, 2021 - Brad's Belated Big 6-0 Birthday Celebration (Brad & Marcia's Place, St. Paul, MN): Dark red color. I believe this got a quick splash for sediment. Drank a glass over 45 minutes next to a beautiful '89. This was a fair bit bigger, very spicy, strong garrigue notes, bold with some more stewed plum notes to go with the cassis and black cherry. Showing a little heat too. Not quite up to some past bottles.

    August 20, 2021 - I honestly had little hope that this was going to be remotely drinkable as I haven’t had much luck with Chateauneuf’s aged more than 10 years. I thought it would be past it’s prime. I was wrong. Still very fresh and ripe, some brick on the rim with silky smooth tannins, some sweetness, tobacco leaf red berry notes, medium body with a never-ending finish. No decanting required; I would push the drinking window further to 2026. Hats off to the Perrin family.

    August 2, 2021 - Tasted blind. Very pretty nose with red fruit, savory notes, old leather, and tart berries. Medium acidity with quite integrated tannins, cassis, and red berry flavors on the palate. Nice finish. This is a very pleasant, mature CdP!

    July 12, 2021 - A little past it’s prime. This vintage hasn’t aged as well as some others and should be drank soon.

    May 16, 2021 - Robe vermillon d'intensité moyennement pâle.

    Nez au démarrage de faible intensité, fruit noir, mûres, kirsch léger. Après quelques minutes, arômes de terres, animale, jus de viande léger et olive noire léger. Après 1 jour, les Prunaux d'Agen aux lards fumés sont clairement identifiables.

    En bouche, fraicheur intacte avec des tannins qui sont savoureux. Cela manque maintenant de structure et la finale est relativement courte.

    (Beaucastel) This was ok but really did not ring my bell. 1995 is a not so thrilling vintage with Rayas towering above everything. Very rustic with some serious austerity on the palate and a burnt-ashen character and loads of red fruit. Acidity was average and the wine came across as boring
