Pardon me while I continue my summer CdP binge. It’s like Christmas in ... August. I’m having this a night after an ‘07 Beaucastel, and for me, this takes the cake. Great funk in the nose, high toned complexity especially on the front to mid-palette, incredibly long finish. For me, this is perfect CdP.

In a great place. The Syrah adds white pepper notes. Plenty of life left, but no reason to wait. Classic old school Chateauneuf and perfect with lamb on Easter.

A sample of aged CNP from Dustin. Great stuff not enough time to take notes but i wanted to buy this even at 125$. Alas 😤 it was the last bottle at the store @ the Meritage in Encinitas.
