Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 2011
Nice grassy green citrus apple and pear notes, minerality and sunlight. Wonderful texture volume and depth, breadth character expression and power. Very bold fruit but also very young.
Deep dark fruit, earthy and leathery, wild boar spice, yet very precise and fine. Wonderful complexity depth and also savoury, looking very young and exuberant, opulent and accessible with velvety tannins.
Darker ruby floral elements, juicier nose, less earthy complexity. Very full generous and powerful, yet with soft tannins and fruit. Good volume without the same extension, both fresher and simpler.
Cuvee des Cadettes 2006
Clearly a big oak influence, chocolaty blackcurrant plum, very fruit- and oak-sweet nose, creamy nutty caramel spice. Wow concentration of tannins and fruit, very bold and powerful with a nice velvety finish. Needs a lot of time.
