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

Awesome wine. Great balance, good tannins. Oh and the fruit is awesome after being open for 1.5 hours..

Blind Rhône’s from Saturday. I feel like this was flawed but not in an obvious way a la TCA...more like it was madeirized or a victim of lightstrike. Sour, stinky socks and a dull vibe. Bummer. NR.

Year in and year out one of my favorite wines, specially the 2010. It is aging so well, everything is integrated and it was a pop and pour. Lights out.

It is was a sound wine and it is clean and well made but it has a cherry cough syrup character most of the time and it is not for me

Nose: sweet dark fruit taste: rich dark fruit chocolate balanced lively acid.

A dark kirsch and cherry nose. Ripe but exceptionally pure. Lovely balance- still dense and very young. This has a lot of potential

Very good wine, colour is a little bit evolved with very soft and silky tannins. Enjoyable now but could age more. Wine is precise on the nose typic from chateauneuf du pape notes with black olive tapenade and thym.
