    January 26, 2020 - Not an expert in this region, but this is a great wine and well made. Surely mature, this was really pleasant

    January 23, 2020 - Medium ruby red in color with clearing at the edges. Full, forward & attractive nose of ripe fruit aromas of cherries, blackberries & plums with overtones of garrigue & floral notes of lavender & dried Provençal herbs, pepper, anise, earthy/dusty notes, minerals & a hint of oak notes. Medium-full bodied with a very good concentration of well balanced & smooth textured, ripe fruit flavors of dark cherries, blackberries & plums with spices, herbs, pepper, beefy, minerals & a hint of oak/vanilla. Long lingering finish. Drinks quite well at present with decanting & airing but at 19 years of age, it is at or quite close to its peak of development, so drink up!

    January 19, 2020 - Certain one of the wines of the weekend among 90 bottles. Complex with brett, cigar, herbs de provence, red fruit, and earth. Certainly at later maturity with more secondary than primary characteristics but a lovely example of aged CdP. Drink now.

    January 1, 2020 - Edelt treverk, mørke bær, jordtoner, bark, spice. Frisk frukt. Stor i munnen men relativt slank til appellasjonen å være og ikke skjemmende fruktdybde. Fast utgang. Bra Chateauneuf, men forsvarer ikke helt prisen

    December 30, 2019 - Agree with last few earlier reviews. In a great place right now. Some initial barnyard followed by ripe fruit. Tannins fully integrated. Wish I had more than two bottles left. But really not sure it could get any better!

    (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 Richly endowed, youthful but withdrawn, with a composition bordering on monolithic, this wine needs time, but it was worthwhile taking this first look.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
