    April 16, 2019 - Served blind. A dark purple /ruby. I remember thinking this was a "spicy mother f*cker". Lots of chocolate with time too. In its drinking window. Served by SH with JO.

    March 11, 2019 - Outstanding wine, drinking at peak. Half the tasting group had this as their WOTN.

    March 9, 2019 - 1st of 12 bought en primeur and pulled out of storage. Perfect levels and condition. Complex nose and still young in the mouth. Very impressive.

    February 28, 2019 - I love this wine. The nose kills me from the pull of the cork - sweet red fruit, fresh flowers, garrigue, and exotic spices. The texture is glorious... so light on its feet, it dances on the tongue. The impression on the palate is harmonious and complex, something new in every sip. This is at its peak and should maintain this level for several years. My last bottle and I will miss this great wine.

    February 17, 2019 - Dark; unabashed, typical of the vineyard, shapely but not shy; splendid, power-packed, full bodied, nicely weighted. Good for drinking now & next 15 years. Archetypal.

    (Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape) Very slightly cloudy cherry red color with pale meniscus; bretty, herbaceous, olive nose; somewhat mature, stemmy, herbaceous, dried berry, pepper and smoke palate; medium finish 91+ pts.

    (Clos des Papes Chateauneuf du Pape) A fine, cherry red hue. On the nose there are some dark, brooding fruits, smoky-roasted cherries, but otherwise this wine is giving little away at the moment. It has a great presence on the palate, with lots of weight and a firm, grippy, masculine tannic structure. Very decent acidity too. Richly endowed, youthful but withdrawn, with a composition bordering on monolithic, this wine needs time, but it was worthwhile taking this first look.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Clos des Papes) Great nose of crushed hot pebbles, cherry liquor, kirsch, wild berries, smoke, little bit of an exotic tomato hint. Elegant but with sweet concentrated fruit and tremendous ripeness. All perfectly ripe red fruits. Seamless yet spreading. Great acid and serious stony complex minerals on the finish. As Yaacov has repeatedly said this is one of the most Burgundian CDP's out there. This was singing on this particular night.

    (Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape) Beautiful, aromatic nose with hints of Asian spice; deep, tasty, brambly fruit with soft tannins
