    August 28, 2019 - Coravin: Inky ruby. Nose has red berries, leather. Less rich than the CEG and CDJ of the same vintage and less of the pruney notes, but livelier. Medium length. 87-90.
    Decanted: Above + meaty notes on nose. Dark fruit and meaty notes on palate, spicy. Moderate length. 88-90.

    March 15, 2019 - Powerful, full-bodied and rich and packed with flavours of raisins and ripe plums. Clearly a biggie but falls short of the full sledgehammer treatment as the weight is kept in check with a clearly defined acid structure. This slipped down remarkably easily for such a big wine. Very different to the more feminine, fruit-driven 2012 we had in mag at l’Absinthe. At its peak right now but will prob go another 3 years without too much difficulty. I shudder to think what its big brother will taste like.

    February 7, 2019 - Another bottle having enjoyed it so much last month. Alongside cheesy leaks with ham. Very nice. All a good CNDP should be.

    January 16, 2019 - Decanted an hour prior to drinking. Leather and spice and all things nice as the poem goes. Lovely and drinking very well now, but no rush.

    December 15, 2017 - 2007 always causes a bit of trepidation with Chateauneuf. So many wines have been overripe, over alcoholic, overdone. Not so here. This is an elegant wine, with very classic herbal, leather, earth and dusty fruit flavors. It’s a little bit subtle, so needs food that is not aggressively flavored, but it’s a wine for drinking, and isn’t that what a wine should be.
