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.

Hands down my favorite Clos Des Papes in the 00's.... And there a lot of good ones in this decade.

Drinking phenomenally well. Hoisin sauce, asian plum, cassis, espresso, and cherry. Gamey and meaty as well. Beautiful stuff. Great with braised short ribs

Closed on the nose but more open on the palate. Clean with no blazing saddles here. And no overt raisination nor volatility despite the warmth of 2006.
