This Chateauneuf was brought to use by a friend of OWG. It's been decanted and allowed to breath for 10 minutes. The wine is dark garnet with a brown and orange tint to the edge. It has aged remarkable well the nose is alive and fresh, very dark fruit, green olive, very floral. When first opened it will be quite barnyard, but upon breathing settles into the nose described. The mouth feel is light to medium with dark cherry, layering of acids and tannin to a very long finish. Wonderful if not enough to describe it but the best I can say.
Cost: $ 80
Wine Type: Chateauneuf Du Pape, France, Rhone, Southern Rhone
