Domaine Charvin Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2005

Forward and lush for the vintage, with dark currant and fig paste flavors backed by licorice, coffee, garrigue and braised beef notes. The long, smoky finish has a lingering touch of mesquite. The profile is black fruit, but the structure is remarkably elegant for the vintage, with lovely poise. Drink now through 2023. Wine Spectator

Concentrated and definitely mature with rich, ripe and sweet scents of dried figs, pan-fried anise seeds and roasted herbs. While fading, this does carry a core of concentration and very soft tannins, so better to drink sooner than later. Well made but slightly boring and flabby.

Hard to assess. Hot but not over ripe in terms of palate presence. Raspberry and herbs. Hold for several years.

Sound. Young. Not charming. Bit 4-square and masculine as many 05's are.

Drinking beautifully, good firm tannins, bright black fruit, very well structured wine. Bought on release and 1st btl I've opened. Looking forward to enjoying this wine for a while.

Ripe. Stewed fruit. Tannins are grippy and drying. Disappointing. Maybe a bad bottle? .375 bottle.
