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

A wine to end the evening. Beautiful cherry, leather, and spice.

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.

En Magnum. Bodacious red fruit, with texture and detail. Developed, yet in pristine condition. A treat!

Translucent red and so Burgundian. Great for about 20 mins then it fell off the cliff. Fun to try but drink it quickly after opening!

Hot brick and opulent sweet red cherry. Under layer of sweet spice and liquorice. Burgundian elegant mixed with Chateau-neuf. Such an amazing example of admirable Grenache blend!
