X Cuvée Anonyme Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2015

Uninterrupted rim saturation. Dark plum with rich pressed blackberry aromas; Applewood charcoal smoke, suede, and charred bacon. Violets and safe vie for recognition through a textbook panoply. Black and red plum bounce in the thick blackberry, with thyme and rosemary now, black pepper dusted grilled meat, dried lavender and sapling oak, blue spruce nettle, morel, pencil shavings, cottonseed, cassis, and black currant. There is an iron feel sifting through fine earth dust that seems to re-emerge on the finish. This is a real beauty with a stunning combo of finess and sinewy, farm strength. Sun-bronzed and Hands-on, she is a perfect assimilation of her environment. Great look!

Domaine du Pegau

Cuvée Réservé Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend

Wild blue and red berry fruit, subtle notes of spice and game, a barely there touch of green comes through as herbal. While the alcohol is high, the wine shows elegantly and very feminine in style. Sauve and silky textured this has very ripe and fine tannin that get lost in the glycerol of this wine's youth. Always a perennial wine of the vintage and a great value (imo). #pegau #grenache #CdP — 6 years ago

Cuvée Anonyme Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2005

Smoky plum meets dank river and beef and ham’s baby on blacktop, with black rye, oregano, deer spoor, clay, and blackened corn meal. Medium mouthfeel, sharp plum-skin plus cranberrythat softens to raspberry and dried strawberry, rhubarb and miracle berry. Actually holding up well since 2005. #cdp #châteauneuf #chateauneufdepape #rhone #rhoneblend #frenchwines #xavier #anonyme #xaviercdpanonyme — 3 years ago

Domaine des Sénéchaux

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2013

Warm baguette with whipped butter and lemon. Artichoke, green tomato, grilled pineapple, smoky hog jowl on greens, pretzel dough, basil and capers are bursting from the glass in gaseous form. Medium mouthfeel, buttery and olive-briny, white mushroom, flat-citric lemon oil bordering on curd, and yellow wax beans with water chestnuts and almonds. Nice acidity keeps tho one from becoming sluggish. A full, round mouthful, with plenty to contemplate. Persistent and palate-coating. #CDP #chateauneufdupapeblanc #blanc #frenchwine #popewine #domainedessénéchaux #rhonewine — 4 years ago
