We first tried a bottle of Celestins in a restaurant in Gigondas some years ago, and for me it was a WOW Wine. Had this latest bottle on Sunday with Roast Pork. Medicinal to begin with which blew off. Barnyard aromas - horse manure. In hindsight this could’ve been Brett but the overall impression and tasting was impressive and memorable. Glad I have 3 left. Showing a medium to full bodied palate. This is textbook CdP in the old school genre. The tannins are silky and sexy - a liquorice note together with saddle leather. Henri Bonneau passed away in 2016 and the wine making is now carried out by his son, Marcel. A visit to his archaic cellars was keenly sought after and rarely granted. Mould all over the walls, rickety stairs light bulbs dangling from the ceiling and a floor which stuck to the soles of your shoes was how one visitor described his experience in the cellar. Nevertheless this is a CdP up there with Rayas and the top Cuvée from Beaucastel. The blend is usually 90% Grenache with the balance made up of around 4 or 5 different varieties. — 10 months ago
Kick-off your shoes, pour a glass and relax. Warm and delicate, well balanced and smooth. A great wine for every occasion. — 3 years ago
Such an amazing wine.
This fino one day decides to not be, loses it flor and has a flirt with Amontillado..

P: Feels a bit dying upon entry, sharp and luxuriously sapient and enveloping, leather shoes, oils that will always provide mystery.Caramel, Chalk, treacle…cobblestones.A beautiful thing to imbibe. 20°

This is hazy, just as the label advertises, and just delightful. Would pair amazingly well with a curry of some sort. Bright and delicate, the hops are quite well-balanced. — 3 years ago
Very nice aglianico. Dry. A little barn-yardy. Some cherry fruit. Not an easy drinking crowd pleaser but I think that’s what I like about it. With food. Dig it. — 6 years ago
