Old school style of CDP. Reminds me of Burgundy.

Dark red. Powerful dark fruit and pungent floral qualities on the nose, along with hints of licorice and succulent herbs. In a weighty style for the vintage, offering palate-coating cherry preserve and black raspberry flavors that turn sweeter as the wine opens up. Dusty tannins build steadily on a long, chewy finish that leaves bitter cherry and blueberry notes behind. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, December 2019)

Give me a straw and I'll be set for the day and into the night. Co-fermentation kind of blew my mind.

At 10 years old this is showing first signs of maturity. Color has changed a bit, palate is perfect combo of earthy wet leaves, pure Grenache fruit and minerals. A touch of bear detracts. So rare to find CDP without heat. Beaucastel usually can pull it off. Rayas as well.

Very traditional and full of character. Great contrast to the Janasse and CNDP I've had lately. Lots of WC influence, old large oak. Earthy, rustic, still elegant. A core of fruit that is the backdrop for a melange of garrigue herbs, flowers, spices, and savoriness. Smoke, baked rock, and peppercorns throughout. A more cerebral expression of CNDP.

Superb traditional style, all the earth and sweetness still on full display, really lovely, just a touch of heat, but all is forgiven
