Decanted on the fly at the dinner table. Opened up nicely in the mouth but not on to the nose. Velvety smooth on the palate, light caramel, mildy tobacco with a dense plummy fruit simulating a newer port.

Medium in body with a low tannin level, making this CDP a great drinker now. The flavors are of raspberries, maraschino cherry and spice. The finish is sweet and bright; drink this one with roasted turkey.

Domaine Giraud is one of many Chateauneuf du Pape estates that has been producing better and better wines over the last decade. Their medium ruby-colored 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape reveals raisiny, sweet, nearly overripe cherry notes along with good body, but a disjointed, diffuse character. Irsquo;m not sure this is an accurate portrayal of the wine, but thatrsquo;s the way it tasted the day I saw it. Drink it over the next 7ndash;8 years.

Bright red. Sexy, inviting red berry and subtle spice aromas display compelling purity and focus. Sweet and silky on the palate, with utterly seductive flavors of bright raspberry and wild strawberry. The raspberry note echoes on the gently tannic finish. Bright and elegant for the vintage.

The 2001 Châteauneuf du Pape reveals a character similar to its older sibling, with additional texture, structure, and delineation (from the cooler harvest conditions). Sweet dried Provencal herb, roasted meat, ground pepper, and kirsch liqueur aromas jump from the glass of this deep ruby-colored offering. It possesses excellent texture, a big, chewy, succulent mouthfeel, and a spicy, long finish. It may deserve an outstanding score. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2013.

The 2001 Chateauneuf Du Pape's dark/ruby plum color is accompanied by delicious, sexy aromas of ground pepper, kirsch liqueur, roasted peanuts, and lavender. Full-bodied, broad, and expansive, it is a succulent, hedonistic fruit bomb to enjoy over the next 7-8 years.

The 2003 Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape showed nice plum, cherry, and resiny notes, savory, expressive, fleshy flavors, and low acidity. Drink it over the next 5ndash;6 years.

An artisanal wine that harks back to another era, showing wet earth. Almost funky, with raspberry jam, mineral, stone, saddle leather and citrus complexity. Plenty to like, with no obvious oak to interfere with this distinctive version of the local terroir. Not imported into the U.S. Drink now through 2010.
