What’s notable about this bottle isn’t that it was stellar (it was) but that it was consumed having lunch at a restaurant (outdoors) with someone other than my immediate family for the first time in many months. Of course the experience was enhanced by the gorgeous apple, pear, and lemon curd flavors shot through with chamomile and candle wax. There’s always such a sumptuousness to CndP Blancs that I love.

This is why I love CNP. So complex, nervy and alive. Great on its own and even better with dinner. Really enjoyed the cellar gem from 2014. Perfect Mother’s Day to share with my wine loving daughter. But would have many years ahead. Thank goodness for 2 more bottles in cellar!;-)

Complexity for days. Really opens up after about 90 minutes or so. Brilliant.

Richness, precision and energy, guava, melon and honeysuckle, with very good acidity and hints of earth on the long and pure finish.

Bramble berry, compost, juicy red fruits, kirsch and off the vine wild raspberries (per my notes)....the Grenache dominates and it's in a really stellar place. Thank you @Martin G Rivard for the hospitality and ever flowing wine tap!
