  • 2015 Saint-Cosme Châteauneuf-du-Pape – France, Rhône, Southern Rhône, Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1/2/2019)
    WIML92

    Tasted non blind.

    Dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of potpourri, plums and berries. Flavors of berries, cherries and plums. Medium acidity, medium tannin, full bodied.. OK now with some air but I’d lean towards holding a few more years. Seems like it is just now emerging from a shutdown. (92 points)

    Garnet color in the glass with slight brown twinges around the edges, fairly clear otherwise. Nose of dirty diaper, pepper and plums. Flavors of plums and berries. Medium acidity, resolved tannin, medium to full bodied. Drink yesterday. Seemed over the hill slightly or perhaps poorly stored (which I doubt) so no rating.
