Chateauneuf Du Pape

Henri Bonneau

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2007

Unique, like nothing else in Chateauneuf and in 2007. Bonneau’s touch is all over this wine, superbly constructed, not overripe despite being an 07, beautiful blend of primary and secondary aromatics. 🙏
This wine concluded yet another terrific night at l’Oustalet. Congrats to their team for a much deserved 1* Michelin Star !

Vieilles Vignes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2005

This is an amazing chateauneuf-du-pape. Showing black fruits with earth, spices, peppercorn, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, graphites and vinaigrette.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.

Very fruity and complex with a great mouthfeel and balance.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up and shows some tannins.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

Robert Parker 91 points.

This 2005 vintage was great, and it is really showing. Will be good in the next 5 years, but it is peaking now.

Delicious and yummy with so much complexity.

Aged in concrete vats, and oak barrels, for 18 months.

15% alcohol by volume.

95 points.

$100. ( less than half that, if you buy current vintage)

Domaine Saint Préfert

Réserve Auguste Favier Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2012

Dark ruby in color with short brick rim.

Strong nose of blackberries, blueberries, plums, light vanilla, forest floor, tobacco, earth, light oak, dark chocolates, black pepper, spices, wet leaves and graphite.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, sweet cherries, plums, over ripen strawberries, raspberries, earth, light vanilla, wood, leaves, river rocks and spices.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a great CDP from a good vintage, that is drinking very nicely now. Very tasty and easy to drink. Well balanced with a nice mouthfeel and nice complexity.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly. Tangy, tasty and interesting.

At the beginning of its drinking life, and will age nicely in the next 10 to 15 years. If you can find the 2015 vintage, grab it.

I paired it with cheeses, meats, olives and light appetizers.

A blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Cinsault and 10% Syrah.

15% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Clos des Papes

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2015

By this point in the night, I wasn’t taking detailed notes. Ripe and concentrated, cherries and sweet spice. Aromas weren’t well developed on PnP, but a nice wrap-up to a Grenache-focused night. — 6 days ago

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2014

D6. Young. Very young. Even though it was decanted and frequently agitated, this one didn't come out to play until almost 2 hr after opening. Nose of Bing cherry and mint. Some red clay must. The entry is very acidic. Black cherry hint but Bing cherry backbone. Herbal middle. Started to show terroir-driven notes to the finish. Youthful and tight tannin. LOTS of life ahead. Be in NO HURRY to drink this one. I'd say optimal drinking time 5 to 10 years. — 7 days ago

Monthly WTF wine group meet up. This month is new world vs old world Rhône’s. All wines tasted blind. 3 flights.

This was tasting really smooth. I guessed mid ‘00s new world Grenache. Stewed raspberries and blackberries, cardamom, old plum, and even some old graham cracker sweetness upfront. Retained some solid spiced red fruit notes on the palate and some savory herbal notes. I didn’t get any black pepper on this. Nice.

This is textbook CdP. A little Brett-y funk on the nose and in the mid-palate but finishes long and soft with intense cherry cough syrup yumminesss. — a day ago
