    September 5, 2020 - Dyp rød kjerne og bred oransje kant. Tydelig aroma som kommer med preg av viltkjøtt, sur-søt frukt, lakris, underskog, lavendel, rosmarin og kaffe. I munn er den medium + fyldig med god konsentrasjon og tydelig syre/tannin som gir god ryggrad til vinen. Med luft så kommer det frem mer kompleksitet i smaken med innslag Garrique, lakris, urter og sur-søt frukt. God lengde. Utviklet seg positivt i de 2 timene det tok å konsumere flasken, så her er det oppside for gode flasker. Har hatt flere flasker av denne vinen de siste 1,5 årene og det har vært varierende modning. Hvorfor er alltid den siste flasken(denne) den beste?

    November 22, 2012 - From magmum. Worked nicely with the turkey due to the complexity of flavors and the relative lightness of the wine given its origin. Mature wine, classic Chateauneuf. Good stuff.

    December 17, 2011 - From magnum. Much better than the bottle opened in October. A wonderfully mature nose of funk, barnyard, dried fruit and spices. One of Christian's friends said that he wanted to just sit and smell this wine all night long. A medium bodied wine with a palate of nice red fruit, sous-bois and spices. The tannins are fully resolved. Chateauneuf du Pape from a time when there was more focus on subtlety and finesse than noise and blockbusters. Lovely.

    October 15, 2011 - From magnum. The wine must have been filtered before bottling because there is no sediment whatsoever in the bottle. Good mature Chateauneuf in a surprisingly light style. The tannins are fully integrated and soft. I get an on-and-off metallic flavor on the palate which is slightly disturbing. This is a good but not great wine. The 1994 version enjoyed at La Table Comtat in Seguret this summer was far more distinguished and the 1995 tradition from this grower has far more punch.

    December 15, 2007 - Champagne and Rhones at Craig's (Henriot, Chapoutier, Guigal, Chave, Telegraph, others): My contribution to the night. Tasted from magnum. Double decanted about five hours before serving. Deep red color. Appears extremely youthful. The nose is an expressive blend of black fruit, mineral, garrigue and a mild barnyard funk. Brooding yet enticing. On the palate this has an appealing blend of red fruit, mineral and earth. The weight and texture are very nice and the overall balance is impressive. Flavors are expansive in the palate from the attack through the long satisfying finish. This bottle was much better than a previous bottle tasted. Drinking well now and should hold for quite awhile (especially in magnum form).
