La Crau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2007

See previous note 127 weeks ago. Notes of raspberry and dried fruits. Still herbaceous and after a while there was garrigue. The palate was more full bodied than usual in this excellent vintage - medium to full bodied. More savoury than fruit driven at 14 years with resolved soft tannins. A hedonistic mouthful of deliciousness! Grenache 65%, Syrah 15%, Mourvèdre 15%, Cinsault 5% - first 10 months in cement and then 12 months in large foudres. Balanced, harmonious and classic. — a day ago

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc White Rhone Blend 2019

Interesting White Rhône Blend of Clairette, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Bourboulenc. Great way to start Thanksgiving Day! Bright and fruit forward, but quite weighty. Wonderful texture. Golden yellow color. Nose of apricot, white flowers and honey. Pallet featured apricot, white peach, quince with a touch of citrus and fresh herbs. Touch of saline and mineral. Very long, floral and unctuous finish. Wine we shared preparing the Thanksgiving Meal! Thanks for sharing Kase! — 11 days ago

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2018

Sometimes it’s simply fun to try a wine at its precocious best. This CdP is a perfect example of that fun. With 75% Grenache leading the charge...and a slightly tannic/hot first act...the wine settles down to reveal globs of great concentrated dark fruit, whiffs of garrigue, and CdP’s ever familiar spice and game characteristics. This ‘18 deserves to be in your cellar maxing out in about 10 years. A lovely, lovely wine. (Paired it up with a ground coffee/brown sugar/chipotle chile powered grilled NY strip steak. A perfect 10!) — a month ago
