Tintot Special Cuvée Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2015

We pulled this from our cellar and brought it to V. Mertz for dinner. We enjoyed a couple of other wines as aperitifs and then ultimately did what anyone given the opportunity should do: pair it with lamb chops. We poured it into a decanter while we enjoyed the conversation and opening courses. Given the setting, there were no formal notes however, I can confidently report that the 2015 “Tintot” absolutely slaps. From the first sip to the last, it was all balance, power and class. It was also a spectacular showcase for Mourvèdre. It was hard to fully judge color because the lighting was so low but it appeared to be nearly opaque. A touch feral with a slightly gamey element to it but there’s a great big ol’ basket of black and blue fruits with red and purple flowers, garrigue, some black pepper and cedar chest. Structure is still quite firm but totally enjoyable. While this is an unusual assemblage for the region, it still comes across as a wine from Chateauneuf-du-Pape. This was my first “Tintot” and it has left quite the impression. Drink now with an hour decant or over the next 7-10 years. P.S. it probably goes without saying, but the pairing with lamb chops was sublime. — 8 days ago

Cuvée du Quet Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2005

Unusually dark, tarry, tannic and masculine for a Ch9dP. Probably reflecting the 30% Mourvedre in the blend.
Hints of iron, oxtailsoup, blackpudding, charcoal, dark spices and bitter chocolate. Although there are still a few blackberries and dates bobbing up and down in this brooding and rustic wine, I’d drink this within a few years time. At this moment, there still is enough freshness and vivacity too keep things enjoyable.
Impressive. And very nice.
