Nice aromas. Not clean. Coffee grounds, hints of Mercaptan.

Elegant, focused, finely tuned CNDP with layered aromatics and textural complexity. Raspberry coulis, crushed blackberries, juniper, exotic spices, some menthol from its whole cluster fermentation, iron, violet. Day two has led to more personality in the fruit with garrigue and pastille accents coming through, perhaps some hung meat emerging. The streak of iron throughout is captivating at the moment. This will be even more beautiful as it continues to develop in bottle.

The 2017 Charvin Chateauneuf du Pape is taking its time opening up in the glass and remains youthfully poised throughout, showing a mix of crushed cherries and blackberries with violet florals and crushed stone minerality.  Silky textures wash across the palate with spiced black fruits. There’s a fruit sweetness here that’s quite enjoyable, as saturating minerals and spice settle in, and grippy tannins make themselves known throughout the long finish.  Although it’s the product of a warm vintage, the 2017 Charvin is built for the long haul.  I almost regret opening it tonight, because it’s certainly too soon.

Meaty and earthy blend. Excellent transitions throughout the sip.

Beautifully structured and drinking great even in its youth. One that will certainly develop more with age but drinking wonderfully now. BlackBerry fruit and nice earthiness. Nice long finish.

It’s Rhone night! WOTN. Layers upon layers of complex black fruit, Moroccan spice, garrigue, and minerality. Evolves with each sip. The purity of fruit is amazing as no oak is used. Phenemonal and ageworthy. Cellar this! 2017 vintage on March 21, 2020
