    December 31, 2021 - Gift from my daughter for Christmas selected by her wine enthusiast boss, knowing I love good wine. A great choice from my favorite CdP producer with just enough bottle age to reveal the complexity in this offering. Cherries on the nose with seasonal spices and earthy undertones giving it a definite sense of terroir. Drank over a couple of hours on a low key New Years Eve.

    December 28, 2021 - Fabulous wine. A bit smoky like some BDX can get. Hit its peak at about 4 hour decant time. Kept evolving.

    December 3, 2021 - Echo what I said before. Top, top class CdP here, everything that you love about the best of these wines. Buy up if you can get it below $150, this is a lovely wine to be gotten at a fraction of the price of some of the bigger names from other wine regions of the world with the same level of pleasure.

    November 25, 2021 - Just fantastic. Plum and cherry notes with a good bit of earth and herbs. Just a perfect expression of Provence.

    November 22, 2021 - This is drinking fantastically right now. I quite like the lighter texture of the 2009s. The wine manages to pack loads of blue fruit and kirsch without entering the dreaded confected zone. Drink now for optimum pleasure but these will hold or a while too.

    (Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape) Dark red violet color; brett, tart black fruit, subtle herbs, savory, garrigue nose; tight, garrigue, tart berry, mineral, charcoal palate; medium-plus finish (too bretty for a 2009 bottle of wine going for over $150)
