Bosquet Des Papes

Clos de l'Oratoire des Papes

Comtes de Neipperg St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend

Sticking with St. Emilion for the night. This wine is quite different from the last. Deep dark stewed blue fruits and figs, pencil lead, quite extracted, nose and palate in harmony transmitting similar notes. Even the darker color forshadows the darkness to follow. This wine is oppulent, but without the big fruit forward New World bravado. It stays true to Bordeaux but pushes the limits. Medium plus alcohol and body, slightly drying tannins, long finish. I regret that I have finished my steak because this wine craves a proper food pairing. Excellent and it will only get better.

Château de la Gardine

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2014

Enjoyed tonight for Valentine's Day. The problem with finding a wine to complement lobster, swordfish, cream spinach, steak and Crème brûlée is that it's just about nearly impossible to do. Well, I saw this 14 CDP on the menu and stopped looking. Compared to the 09, I knew (or at least hoped) that this wine would have been more rounded. My notes of the 09 showed a wine that was robust, 'hot', as the season was definitely more ideal than the 14. But, the good thing was that this wine really opened up with minimal decanting. The wine poured a medium density, nose of black cherry and funk. Entry of this wine is medium+, front revealed dirty black cherry, bramble, mushroom, dirt, a hint of chocolate mint. Rounded edges from start to finish. The wine complemented all food served rather well, and was a nice luscious wine to enjoy even after it was all over. I would definitely say that this is perhaps a more unpredictable vintage (the 14 Clos des Papes was firing on all cylinders when I checked in on it a while back). But overall, this is a vintage to hold 1-2, drink the rest now and enjoy them for what they give you. 92. — 5 years ago

Väldigt mycket smak. Len karaktär. Lång eftersmak att tugga på. Svårt att hitta mat som mäter sig med hur mycket det var. — 5 years ago
