Drank 2/21/20. Tasting event. Tasting pour.

An early drinking, more ripe style. Black cherry, black currant, magic marker, earth and a touch of underbrush on the bouquet. Black fruit and a hint of pepper on the nose well integrated tannins, full body, long finish.

4/21/8/3/4 +50=90 pts.

Nose of bright cherry and wild strawberry.

Saline comes in, on, and washes over the tongue.the fruit is soft, with the tiniest of tannins.
The body lacks depth and the wine lacks true terroir character. Not a C-D-P, in my opine. Though you get what you pay for.
Le mistral does not blow through these vineyards, apparently.

Dark cherry, tobacco, leather. Acid is a bit tight, could stand to cellar for a bit longer. A good buy, but not revelatory.

A most lovely evening with amazing dinner guests...and this guy the first of two different bottles. .right up front the nose was fruity with cherry strawberries and slight acetone. To the palate super ripe cherry, strawberry slightly peppery with a med plus finish. For the price point of this guy is an excellent value on a chateauneuf de pape..

Went well with skirt steak, homemade green salsa and vegetables. Not overly jammy or earthy, nice balance

Heavy grape flavor with slight pepper finish. A bit too sweet for me
