Chateauneuf Du Pape

Château Rayas

Pignan Réservé Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache 2005

Without doubt the best Chateauneuf-du-pape I ever had! And this is only the second wine of Chateau Rayas! This 2005 is just perfectly balanced and ready to drink. Very very long finish with red fruit notes and pepper...

IX Réserve Improbable Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2001

Definitely at the end of life but there is still something to be said for this wine. Is it a Parker 94?...no. But it has a nice profile on the palate. Cherries and ripe fruit. It’s the nose that brings this wine down a notch and a little unbalanced on the back end with high acidity. Overall, it’s nice not great. — 6 days ago

Domaine de la Presidente

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grands Classiques Blanc 2015

Bright straw gold. Abundant nose of white flowers and dried yellow tropical fruit. Full-bodied palate echoes the nose adding white pepper, honeycomb, nuts, sweet corn, and a host of smaller layers. A firm backbone of acidity runs throughout from entry to finish. We all know CdP as a red wine, but its white counterpart should be on everyone’s list. The offering by Domaine de la Presidente (from the classic 2015 vintage) is an excellent entry point into this facet of Rhône wines. Well suited to pair with roasted chicken, pork loin, swordfish, game fowl, or root/green vegetable combinations. Drink now through 2025. — 14 days ago

La Bastide Saint-Dominique

Les Hespérides Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2013

Nose has smokey dry earth, dry lavender, old licorice, dried black cherry, ripe black currant, dried blackberry and (light) dried oak.

Palate has silky dried blackberry, ripe plum, black currant jam, (light) dark chocolate, dried blueberry and light tannins. Mouth coating texture. Future bottles should be 2023+

50% Grenache & 50% Mourvédre

Paired with a bottom round beef roast, slow cooked 8+ hours with autumn root vegetables and the au jus from the roast, thickened with a little of my own tomato paste, delicious.

Thanks. Not big CdP drinkers here, as most need time to settle. Household storage bottles are recent, so they're sleeping. Have enough older versions, but they are off-site, so hard to PnP, planning required.
Not a 'new' pic, been rocking it for several weeks. Until Julia and Team push out the Android update to address the first round of bugs on their new version, I can't update it. I'm going to work thru all of the fur-kids once I have the ability to change it again.

Domaine de la Janasse

Chaupin Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2014

Blue fruit, touch of bacon, long finish. Good now but likely better in 5yrs. Tannins weren’t harsh but not fully integrated either. Pairs very well with lamb chops, cumin and fine herbs. — 3 days ago
