Clos de l'Oratoire des Papes

Comtes de Neipperg St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1999

Funky on the nose but is vibrant on the palette. Earthy and dry with a long 30 second minty finish. The finish is the showstopper If only the nose was better I would have rated higher. This one has less than 7 years of life. Drink now — 9 days ago

Vieux Mas des Papes

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend

Great surprise but kinda wild. Nose was charred/raisin scents. Palate was great strawberry/plum jam - great fruit. I can’t remember a wine that I thought would taste so substantially different than it did (based on nose). Terrific 21yr old treat, but wouldn’t hold much past 2yrs. — a month ago

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend

Incredible #chateauneufdupape which was kept casually at room temperature for many years before I was fortunate enough to receive it as a gift. Popped the cork, and within about 30 minutes it really flowered. The overall aromatic impression is a balance of spiced cured meat set against plum and red fruit compote; layers of garrigue, underbrush, mushroom below that. Luscious mouthfeel with plenty of lively acidity, stewed fruit, some olive notes but the tannins have completely integrated and softened to just a hint of what they once must have been. This is a beautiful CDP that has aged gracefully over 17 years. — 14 days ago

Châteauneuf-du-Pape White Rhone Blend 2012

Alder Yarrow
9.3

What’s notable about this bottle isn’t that it was stellar (it was) but that it was consumed having lunch at a restaurant (outdoors) with someone other than my immediate family for the first time in many months. Of course the experience was enhanced by the gorgeous apple, pear, and lemon curd flavors shot through with chamomile and candle wax. There’s always such a sumptuousness to CndP Blancs that I love. — 2 months ago

Chante Le Merle Vieilles Vignes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2018

2nd time on this one and I didn’t e joy it as much. Solid medium/large bodied. A little more astringent then I remembered. Good wine, moderate value (given the price point). — 6 days ago

A La Gloire De Mon Grand-Père Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2017

May be my fav wine of the year so far. Nose is like a fresh meat locker in all the right ways!!! Cellar temp. It will change with some time. Taste is slightly sweet to start and very silky and hugs your cheeks. Quickly changes to deep fruit, cedar and licorice. Fun bottle. — 2 months ago
