Community Tasting Notes 6

    July 5, 2017 - Garnet hue. Nose of earth, garrigue, pepper, floral notes. Fully integrated on the palate with layers of soft red and black plum cut with earth and stone with additional elements of white pepper and tampenade.
    Lower acidity and dusty tannin, leading to a long, gentle finish of red fruit, garrigue, and brier. Lots of positive comments from the peanut gallery and it paired very well with BBQ chicken from the grill.

    March 8, 2016 - Châteauneuf-du-Pape 1998 (Chez moi): I still remember the bottle I brought to restaurant Le Sommelier a couple of years ago, and how gutted I was to find, that mybottles had vanished from the cellar; allready then so elegant, vibrant cool and intense. Also tonight in grown up company, it is quite special; burned rubber, yet light, nervous, a bit herbal, but charming & light. You have to wait for these wines...

    February 19, 2011 - A few wines at a cassoulet cook off. (Chris Wilford's): A very nice, classique, grenachey CDP. Rustic in the right way, chunky in texture with pretty black fruit, licorice, garrigue and game, it’s started to take on some nice secondary development. It went quite nicely with the cassoulet. A-.

    July 3, 2008 - really a strange showing here, and controversial at the table... very plush in texture but the acid was odd and so was the fruit... maybe issues with the barrels? Would have liked to have tried it later... it had been opened three hours prior.

    October 28, 2007 - Bottle stored in cool conditions since purchase. Removing the lead foil revealed a tiny bit of cork protrusion, the cork was stained all the way to the top. The wine was deep purple in color, though, and the nose was full of healthy garrigue, leather, red fruit, and gamey smells. The palate was remarkable for lots of sweet gooseberry and strawberry notes, so sweet that we ended up using it as a dessert wine after dinner to accompany the cheeses! After four hours, it did deepen and develop garrigue, cinnamon, and earthy elements, but just barely. Still, it was harmonious and well-integrated throughout the meal. Not sure this was a typical bottle; will try again in a few years.
