Wow! Absolutely phenomenal. The color was great. The nose was fresh, powerful, incredibly complex, and full of exotic sweet fruit. The palate was in amazing shape with a firm but refined structure and nice tension. The balance was absolutely perfect showing off layers of sweet and perfectly ripe fruit, spice, flowers, and earth that stayed on the palate for minutes. A truly stunning wine with many years of life left, but why not drink it now when it's near perfect. #domainelescailloux #chateauneufdupape #rhonevalley #grenache #syrah #mourvedre #ctbucklinwine

Not as magnificent as it used to be, but aging gracefully.

Exceptional. Burgundian-esque poetry in this election night offering thanks to Ed Z. I’ve never liked a CDP as much!

Incredible wine. I was worried that it might be too old. The fruit was still present and the acid and tannin were very soft. Drink them if you got them
