Dry fruits, tar, mint. Kind of unwieldy but in a good way.

Hot at first but Asian plum and Korean bbq sauce shows later along with wild cherry/dark fruit. It’s massive and may not hold but really enjoyable now.

Drinking fantastically well. Concentrated, complex, yet beautifully balanced -- this is classic CdP in a great spot right now...

Great CdP! Solid core of fruit with firm tannins. Drank better on day 2. Built for the long haul.

Stunning bottle of Chateauneuf! Truly one of the better examples I've had in a long time if not ever. So pure and classic and perfect to drink.
