June 19, 2020 - Decanted for and hour and a half. Aromas of boysenberry, currant, wild cherry, blueberry and roasted herbs. Flavors of raspberry ganache, cherry, blueberry, roasted herbs and hint of iron. Got a bit of heat of the nose and palate of this. Hoping it blows off but not too distracting. Ends with a raspberry and iron finish of 25-30 seconds.
Update: After about the 2 hour mark, corked.
May 30, 2020 - A solid CDP value. Very approachable and a good entry CDP, although not outstanding.
December 13, 2019 - Decanted for 1.5 hours. Aromas of loganberry, raspberry, iron, herbs and flowers. Flavors of raspberry garnache, wild cherry, boysenberry, fig and herb. Ends with a long finish of 30+ seconds with fig and raspberry notes. Just as good as I remember over the summer.
November 13, 2019 - In a blind tasting of 8 CDP 2016 wines, deep red color, red licorice, Brussel sprouts, spices, Flintstone vitamins & iodine were present in this full-bodied lengthy finish wine. Definitely the most vegetal of the bunch yet intriguing in a weird way, I did enjoy. Priced $55 CAD drink over the following 10 to 15 years.
August 27, 2019 - corked
August 19, 2019 - Pop and pour. Aromas of roasted herbs, raspberry garnacha, touch of cherry and warm fig. Flavors of raspberry garnacha, cherry compote, fig and herb, Ends with a 25-30 second finish with cherry and herb notes. This is drinking really well right out of a pop and pour. For the price this is a great Chateauneuf!
May 23, 2019 - 2016 CdP (and some other wines over dinner) (NY Racquet and Tennis Club): One of the bottles at the table was corked. I was on the side with a 'functioning bottle' although I'm not sure that helped this wine much. I found the first part of the taste enjoyable. It's for sure more in that fruity and fun style. You can kindof get the alcohol but in the way that suggests wine. Then kindof halfway in the alcohol seems to take over and more in the flavors of grain alcohol than wine alcohol and it's a offputting. Preferred the beginning flavors, but overall wasn't keen.
April 16, 2019 - Medium to dark red; fat rounded nose, dark fruit, licorice, ripe dark cherries; nice rounded smooth attack, quite heavy but with good acidity to balance, tar, mild tannins at the end; young and vibrant with a likely long life ahead
March 19, 2019 - Served by the glass. Bored and monotonous. Some note of Provencal herbs and red fruits. Nothing to die for. Juicy but with a watery texture on the palate. Without complexity or depth. It is not necessary to let it age. For those who enjoy this type of wine.
Servido por copas. Aburrido y monótono. Alguna nota de hierbas provenzales y de frutas rojas. Nada por lo que morir. Jugoso aunque de textura acuosa al paladar. Sin complejidad ni profundidad alguna. No hace falta dejarlo envejecer. Para quién disfrute con este tipo de vinos.
