Community Tasting Notes 3

    October 12, 2020 - 13x 1980 Birthday Bash: Tasted blind from a magnum. Sadly, this bottle was past its prime. Hints of dark red and red fruits, herbs but an all-consuming soy sauce, broth layer which destroyed everything which might have been there. Usually these Clos des Papes can age very well but I guess that this bottle wasn’t stored properly or else it would have had more life left.

    September 19, 2020 - "You only turn 40 once tasting" (At home): Double decanted. From magnum. There was just a little bit of fruit left, but disappointingly there was mostly only beef juice left.

    February 10, 2018 - Really the essence of Grenache/CDP, with its lovely herbal-inflected ripe raspberry fruit. Tannins mostly resolved, fully mature, lightish in body but still showing fruit. If more CDP tasted like this, I would drink it more often.
