Dark ruby with a hint of brownish red. High pitched nose offering ripe plums, herbs, and a sort of medicinal type thing. Sweet fruit and heat with not so much structure in the mouth. Over the top wine, representative of the vintage's hot weather. Not my style of CdP.

Wow. Stewed strawberries, licorice, dried herbs and some smoked meats. What an incredible wine. From Magnum

Over the hill. I’m not a huge CDP fan, but this was overwhelmed with prunes and plums, and had an unattractive brownish hue to it. Way too sweet and somewhat thin. Not undrinkable, but did pour 1/3 of the bottle out.

A real treat! Just what you want from a CdP. Smoked meats, with licorice on the finish. Beautiful!
