  • Taking one glass direct from the opened bottle. Dark concentrated fruit. Cherry for sure but also tar and liqourice. Nothing extra at this point.

    Waits for several hour and nothing much happened. Raisin evolved. That is NOT my favorite taste in a wine. Right now this is really bad QPR but maybe it will mature. 88.

  • Un nez d’épices et d’anis, avec du fruit noir, qui m’amène tout de suite sur son appellation. La bouche est pleine, chaleureuse et épicée, puissante et fine à la fois. C’est riche, encore bien jeune, mais l’équilibre est admirable, rien ne dépasse. Un grand Chateauneuf. 93-95 pts

  • Very modern and fruit forward with cherry, plum, and strawberry accented by some garrigue and a subtle gamey note. Nicely aromatic and full bodied with decent structure.

    Calineuf-du-pape.

  • Plenty of kirsch and cherry on the nose. A deep deep core showing tar bramble and some scorching. After two hours the intensity remains. The alcohol level is elevated as it’s young so the wine dries a bit on the back end.
    Night 2: the nose shows a bit of tar. The wine is very smooth and easy with good depth. A bit of bite on the finish, but it maintains elegance. A lot to like here.

    Should be a stunner— drink from 2026-2040. I am inclined to let mine rest near term.

  • First bottle of 6. Opened for 90 minutes, but no decant. This is a great wine right now, but might improve a little with age. Might be slightly better than two other vintages (2006 & 2007) that I have had in inventory. The similarity and consistency among the three vintages is very high.
