CdP just isn't my jam, even when it's as idiosyncratic as this. Intellectually compelling, but I struggle with the enjoyment. That said, this killed it at the tasting, so it's a me issue. Thanks @Max Kogod and #kogodwinemerchant !

Belle robe rouge grenat. Nez intense alliant des notes fruitées (prunes, cerises à l'alcool), épicées (cannelle, réglisse) et balsamique. Bouche tendre et volumineuse à la fois ! Superbes tanins et alcool présent au final. Très grand vin.

Aaargh way too young, but already an outstanding wine ( after Lots of air). Strawberry, rasberry Smoke Leather Herbs, blood Orange? everything you need is there. But what makes this wine quiet unique in C9dP is the finesse. That is Not your typical blockbuster wine, but perhaps the most elegant chateauneuf I ever had. Can't wait to drink this in 5 to 10 years.

Such an inviting nose, red fruit and sour candy, sweet mouthtaste with a slight bitter finish which makes this wine truly complete! 100% grenache

Just showing a little bricking at the edge. Saddle, dried dates, orange peel and cardamom on the nose. Plum and black tea with a peppery finish.

A bit upward aroma and dry taste, impacted. Ripen fruity. Enough concentration. It is calm over time, but initial one hour is also interesting. 2016 @1395, Kping - XH, 200327-200407

Red fruit on the nose. Still pretty tannic but softens on the finish. Earth and red liquorice prevail.
