La Crau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2015

I took one whiff and a taste of this and remembered why I love CdP. Red and black berries, earthy, dried herbs, raspberry and coal dust. 60% Grenache; 20% Mourvèdre; 15% Syrah and 5% other permitted varieties Has depth and flavour but does it at just medium bodied. I didn’t realise I had a bottle in mid June 2023. I normally try to spread them out a bit. — 8 days ago

Where is that signature brett funk? Loads of dominate fruit yet the structure isn’t quite up to par. — 16 days ago

[Tasted on September 25, 2023 at Jay’s house with Jay]

Red plum, red currant and sour cherry, with notes of leather, meat and forest floor. Well balanced wine with silky body.

Domaine Charvin

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2020

2020 vintage. Decanted for air-no sed. Medium body. Just enough back door acidity/tannins to cover that delicious, macerated raspberry smoothie at the front door, meet and greet. 8.30.23. — a month ago
