Plenty of tertiary notes already. Hint of Brett or barnyard as well. Full bodied. Rich and sweet tone. A big wine which needs some air.

Opens up quickly with a short decant. Classic flavors of raspberries, lavender, smoked meat.

This is infanticide I know to be drinking 2010 from magnum but it sure was great! This wine is all I could ask of young CdP. Inky dark purple with bright meniscus, nose of baked blackberries, cassis, blackberry tea, touches of earth, smoke, tar and a big whiff of black pepper. Mouth coating on the palate, weighty, super fine tannins with pleasant grip, gobs and gobs of dark fruit and like in all the great vintages, sufficient acid. I can barely remember a finer CdP. Perhaps the 1998.

From the cold 2000 vintage...Wild, earthy and gamey with notes of black cherry jam, leather, tar, smoked bacon, black olives

Solid CNDP showing just a touch of refinement. Black plum compote, bramble, roasted herbs, garrigue, warms spices, leather, cracked pepper. Great herbal notes in there. Found it fresh with agreeable tannins that made it easy to drink. Another great value from Jaume.

Blackberries, tar, funk, black pepper. Very funky. Higher acid than I expect from CdP. A touch thin. Not a huge fan.
