Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2014


Lovely #châteauneuf #chateauneufdupape on the nose and on the palate it almost seems like a Pinot Noir. It has an amazing lightness and floral quality to it. Lavender and potpourri. Meaty and spicy on the palate. Good acidity with a pinch of VA showing. This is a good wine to taste for all of those who say they don’t like #Grenache #Garnacha — a month ago

La Reserve Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2007

Vintage 2007 / I did not know Xavier Vignon, it’s a kind of magician. This wine has almost anything: seductive flowers in the smell, elegance and so much refinement. #chateauneufdupape — a year ago

From #magnum I was a touch concerned with the past storage conditions of this bottle based off the color, a loose structure and oxidative notes. Complexity and character were good but the structure was lacking taking away from the potential energy and length. #1998 #chateauneufdupape #chateaudubeacastel #rhonevalley #ctbucklinwine — 2 years ago

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2016

Simply a beautiful #chateauneufdupape. Velvety tannins, some garrigue and not too much of that sweetness present in some 2016s - paired well and held its own with mildly spiced Tandoori lamb chops. — 5 months ago

Château Sixtine

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2016

Beautifully executed #chateauneufdupape. Heady, New World - style bramble berry nose and that fruit forward nature carries through the palate, but balanced well with acidity, spice and already elegant tannins. I’ll need to hold onto the other bottles I have to see how this tastes after laying down for several years. — a year ago

Mas Grange Blanche

La Font des Bessounes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2015

Very distinctively #chateauneufdupape with a sweeter character combined with some spice. Quite a nice wine but not the best CDP I’ve had. — 2 years ago

Création d'Emilie Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2017

What’s a good wine to sip on breaks while clearing out the garage on a crisp Fall day in Houston? This one...starts off pretty tight but just opens up into expressive #chateauneufdupape - Grenache-baseline cherry, whispering #garrigue herbal notes. It will be a challenge to keep this for at least 5 years to see how it develops. #wsjwineclub — 5 months ago

Outstanding #chateauneufdupape from the Boisson family, easily the best I’ve ever had. Heady aroma, layers of earthy richness blended with tart cherry flavors, soft tannins and elegant spice. Unlike other CDPs I’ve had, it’s not too sweet. — 2 years ago

Cellier des Princes

Domaine Les Escondudes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2014

This is my first #chateauneufdupape and must admit I was a little bit disappointed. It's a sweeter wine which is what distracted me but it does have soft tannins and pepper spice complexity on the finish. I think aging longer would help and I should try other examples of this AoC. — 3 years ago
