Astonishing fruit! Fully mature...NOT over the hill. Just a complete surprise. If I had known how good it was, we would not have opened it today

Balanced and good complexity, notes of ripe red cherries, boysenberry, exotic spices, touch of earth on the finish

Drinking just beautifully right now. A ripe core of fruit still shines through layers of cedar, herbs, potpourri, and some serious gamey-funk. Feeling very cohesive and complex tonight.

The best Chateauneuf tasted in a long time. Medium body, good acidity. Lots of earth and sauvage. Not a fruit bomb. Don't know if it will be the most popular with consumers but certainly the first Chateauneuf I've wanted to drink in a long time.

Lovely balanced wine. Generous fruit and attractive herby notes. Lovely length. Oh for a big chunk of meat!

Tobacco and leather and some cherry lolly. A bit austere. Jury is out.
