Wonderfully broad and clear fruit. Herbal hints at the edges and a profound and clear core. This is balanced and supple and great. In a perfect place right now.

Dark and intense. A tiny bit of smoke and a brooding blue-fruit middle. Very pure and seductive. Some thyme and dried herbs. Gorgeous.

2006 Rayas for lunch, 2010 reserve des celestins for dinner. Two extremes, rosé petals and feminin, peppery and masculin. Two of the greatest wines on the planet. Of course 2010 is a better year. Chateauneuf rocks.

A wonderful nose with tobacco, dark berry fruit, thyme and sage, black pepper. A broad palate with lucious and balanced fruit. Lean and focused with great length. A whiff of sour and herbaceousness.

Dark intense plum, gnarly blue fruit, dried strawberry, some blood and iron minerals. Gorgeous on the palate- plush but intense and mineral laden. Very supple with acidity balancing the delicious fruit. Long and sooo balanced.

A relative disappointment given $345 price tag. Was in 7-wine lineup in blind tasting of 2007 CDPs. Noticeably sweeter than every other wine. Ok at first but became too much as one kept comparing. I ranked 6th and group ranked 5th.
