    July 3, 2020 - Lots of dark fruit, very nice balance, nice acidity paired well with fatty beef. Still bright and lively, no need to hurry up and drink these. I'm going to wait up to 10 to drink another.

    April 29, 2020 - Full bodied, round, mature, yet still lively, peppery, spicy, sweet with loads of Grenache presents and the Mourvèdre secuering the freshness. This remains a great wine. JH liked it very much, still many years left, he found - reporting from day 2.

    April 29, 2020 - My last of a case purchased ages ago when I still like CdP. While I don't dislike it now, it's rarely what I want and I no longer buy it. Based on my last bottle, I gave this a short 30 minute decant before drinking and I think it benefited. There was a good deal of spice and moderate red fruit, good intensity. Structure was nicely proportioned, nothing sticking out. Hoped for, but didn't get, a little more richness, even with air. I enjoyed it, though it got overwhelmed a little by the spices in our lamb meatballs. I would say it's at or even a bit past peak, so drink up.

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 Richly endowed, youthful but withdrawn, with a composition bordering on monolithic, this wine needs time, but it was worthwhile taking this first look.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