    September 19, 2021 - Drinking very well in half bottle. Red fruit, olives and other rhone flavors, well integrated, smooth texture.

    September 12, 2021 - Kleur: Fluwelig en doorzichtig oranjebruin. Aroma / bouquet: Zeer expressief en vooral tertiair bouquet zonder zelfs een spoor van primaire of secundaire aroma's. Op dit moment domineren accenten van vleesjus, sojasaus, marimite en een hint van madeira. Smaak / Afdronk: Boterzacht. Verfijnde zachte zuurgraad, verfijnde zachte tannines. Zacht, tegelijkertijd mondvullend. De aromatische complexiteit is niet meer op zijn hoogst. Verfijnde, lange afdronk. Algemeen / potentieel: Ik was lange tijd wijn-gerontofiel. En zeer belegen Ch9dP hoorde ook bij mijn voorkeuren. Naarmate ik meer belegen word, neigt mijn voorkeur naar wijnen in een minder tertiaire fase. En dat geldt ZEKER voor Ch9dP. Briljante wijn die ik desondanks graag een paar jaar eerder had willen drinken. 50 + Kleur: 5 + Aroma / bouquet: 11 + Smaak / Afdronk: 17 + Algemeen / potentieel: 8 = 91/100

    Colour: Velvety and translucent orange-brown. Aroma / bouquet: Very expressive and mainly tertiary bouquet without even a trace of primary or secondary aromas. At the moment, accents of meat gravy, soy sauce, marimite and a hint of madeira dominate. Taste / Aftertaste: Buttery smooth. Refined soft acidity, refined soft tannins. Soft, yet mouth-filling at the same time. The aromatic complexity is no longer at its highest. Refined, long finish. General / potential: I was a wine-gerontophile for a long time. And very mature Ch9dP also belonged to my preferences. As I become more mature, my preference tends towards wines in a less tertiary phase. And that is DEFINITELY true for Ch9dP. Brilliant wine that I would have liked to drink a few years earlier. 50 + Colour: 5 + Aroma / Bouquet: 11 + Taste / Aftertaste: 17 + General / Potential: 8 = 91/100

    September 10, 2021 - Really bad. Hope it’s an off bottle. Smells oxidized.

    July 16, 2021 - Decanted for 1 hr then served in Zalto Bdx.

    This was really rather elegant and composed with gorgeous cherry and raspberry fruits bound together with a clean seam of acidity. After 2 hrs the wine opened up considerably to show notes of dusty hedgerow and scrubby rosemary. In a lovely spot and most likely at its peak although I could see this winding down beautifully and gently over the next 10 years.
