Châteauneuf Du Pape Grenache

Château Rayas

Réservé Pignan Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache 2008

Beautiful. Brown rim, dark Cherry, herbs, and some smokiness on the nose and palate. Beautiful soft tannins, and beautifully balanced. As always, the most southern Bourgogne available on the market — 21 days ago

Henri Bonneau

Réserve des Célestins Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2004

From the great Henri Bonneau, along with Château Rayas, the master of CDP. (He and Jacques Reynaud were actually dear friends). It’s insanely expressive and its ultra intense aromatics leap from the glass.

The complex bouquet is layered with rich black and red fruit, leather saddle, wilted violets and savory herbs. It just floats on the palate with its supreme elegance, caressing texture and weightless intensity. So Burgundian in that sense. The finish is so long, lifted and intense, leaving you craving another sip when its flavors finally do dissipate. 04 Célestins is a total knockout.

Bosquet des Papes

Chante Le Merle Vieilles Vignes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 1999

Though likely past it’s peak, that must’ve been something even more special. Took an hour to sort out the rich brambly red fruit, plum sauce and shroomy earth. A real treat. — 6 days ago

Bright red cherry. Big tannins, but drinking well now with a short decant. This one can clearly go for many years. — 2 days ago

Château de Beaucastel

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2007

Oxidized but delicious. Raisin sweet, earthy nose, and with the aged southern rhone influence this is drinking almost like a PX sherry or a moscatel. Palate is stewed date, apple, walnut — haroset! Still providing pleasure but don’t wait on this. From 375ml. — 2 days ago

Domaine de Beaurenard (Paul Coulon et Fils)

Boisrenard Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2003

Soft red berry and underbrush nose led a plush, smooth and liquored-up core of red plum and kirsch. Lots of variation in this case but I loved em all so far. — 6 days ago

Domaine La Millière

La Bessade Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2015

Dark garnet with blackish purple core. Inviting nose of black cherry, red apple, and cola. Full-bodied palate yields black cherry, raspberry, red apple peel, anise, and light patent leather. Supple medium plus tannins mid-palate to finish. Medium plus acidity. An excellent Rhône red that’s ready for any “red wine” situation from American steak dinners to medium and hard cheeses to cigars. Drinking wonderfully now, but will satisfy and develop through at least 2030. — 14 days ago

Château La Nerthe

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2017

Bought this one last year at property where I found it splendid. Yesterday I had my doubts on what I drank back than and yesterday. Still very good with quite some elegance but a bit too much alcoholic heat. Probably this needs another year or two — a day ago
