Domaine Tour Saint Michel

Cuvée du Lion Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2015

Right after uncorking this was a splendid #chateauneufdupape - classic Southern Rhône red fruit aromas with traces of garrigue notes, tastes of a bright beam of raspberry purée, plum compote, soft spices. Unfortunately this 2015 wine may have peaked a couple of years ago because the next day (despite wine fridge storage) oxidized raisin & prune notes dominated the nose though the palate was still respectable. — 8 months ago

Deep ruby hue. Strong extraction, heavy tearing. Dusty earth, herbal, and black fruit notes on the nose. Fresh blackberries, black cherry jam, ripe plums, and dried figs. Smooth on the palate with a nice balance and consistency in fruit notes. Also leather, anise, baking spices, dried bay leaf, caramel, and dry potting soil. Paired well with boeuf bourguignon and mixed greens salad with fresh figs and haricot verts. Vintage 2016.

Clos des Papes

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2004

Incredible #chateauneufdupape which was kept casually at room temperature for many years before I was fortunate enough to receive it as a gift. Popped the cork, and within about 30 minutes it really flowered. The overall aromatic impression is a balance of spiced cured meat set against plum and red fruit compote; layers of garrigue, underbrush, mushroom below that. Luscious mouthfeel with plenty of lively acidity, stewed fruit, some olive notes but the tannins have completely integrated and softened to just a hint of what they once must have been. This is a beautiful CDP that has aged gracefully over 17 years. — a year ago

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 — 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 — 3 years ago

Le Clos du Caillou / Domaine du Caillou

Les Quartz Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2017

A more immediate expression of Les Quarts, the 2017 is jammed packed with fruit but oh so fresh. Masses of blackberry, garrigue, crushed stone and wood smoke rise up from the glass. It's silky and suave, displaying polished purple and blue berries, contrasted by sour citrus, with a note of sweet violet candies carried by juicy acids. While this doesn't have the depth of the best vintages, it's a pleasure-bomb of vibrant Grenache that maintains balanced throughout. #closducaillou #chateauneufdupape #grenache #rhonewine — 2 years ago

Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2006

Bought arguably the most storied #chateauneufdupape from an unremarkable year at a reasonable price. 14 years later it was lovely after breathing for a while after uncorking, dried cherry, mushrooms, well balanced. Alas it faded after a couple of days in the wine fridge with some raisiny notes becoming evident; it was likely past it’s peak but still a nice wine. — 2 years ago

Domaine Raymond Usseglio & Fils

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. — 3 years 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. — 4 years ago
