Community Tasting Notes 7

    July 12, 2020 - I discovered this chateau rather late (around 2018) in my search for the top chateaux in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. I’m very glad that our tour guide introduced us to one of the oldest establishments in the appellation. Ordinarily, they’d make their wine quite traditional in the old school manner. But this rendition is remarkably different. Dark garnet hues turning brilliant ruby violet at the rim with a transparent edge. The legs show an unusually high viscosity, and confirmed by the label which indicates 15% of alcohol. The nose gives off ripe blackberry, candied raspberry and smoked baking spices. The palate is plush, seamlessly integrated with just enough acidity to carry the ripe fruit notes all the way to the long, dusty finish with hints of toasted oak vanilla. This is a delight. Very elegant and a crowd pleaser. Drink now until 2030.

    September 13, 2018 - Burgundy, Rhone, Provence Trip; 9/3/2018-9/15/2018 (Burgundy, Rhone, Provence, France): Tasting pour at the Chateau. A 60/30/10 GSM blend. While this is about big dark fruits with a ripe and lush character, there is still good balance as well, soft in the middle with vanilla, and a slightly clipped finish. 89 to 90pts.

    September 12, 2018 - Classic galet terroir. The syrah and mourvedre component is aged in new oak for 18 months, the grenache in demi-muids so distinct differences evident from the base bottling

    In the glass, this shows more red shades; on the nose huge floral spice with harsher notes on back
    Smooth round texture, rising acidity, smooth supple tannins dark fruit and hard spice on the finish. Long round acidity is drawn out on back
