I feel that this could have scored higher a few years ago. A fine win, in every sense, but I think we’ve waited two or three years too long to enjoy this. Nevertheless, wonderful brick red verging on amber in the glass, with rustic animal characteristics on the nose. Taste is very well balanced, but with faded fruit. Drink up.

Last bottle. The grenache on this seemed more to the fore. The aromatics here are great. Very burgundian.

95 vs 96. 1995: elegant and delicate. 1996: intense and persistent. In common: fine wines. We were in 5 of which 3 preferred 1996. I liked most of the 1995 vintage

DTC Chateauneuf du Pape (@ SS): Beautiful and mature bouquet with horse stable, saddle leather, garrigue and still some red berries. On the palate red berry fruits, good herbs and spices, beautifully fresh acidity and complex, earthy and autumn aromas. A beautiful, mature and elegant wine. What a nice surprise!
