  • Pape Clement 2012


    Wood is a bit inelegant and obvious on the nose. A bit simple and sweetly toasty on the nose today with a green olive and dried herb underlay. A bit thin in the mouth with a bit too much wood tannin making this smooth and dry without much detail on the palate and hard and dry on the tannic finish. 84pts Read More

  • This past week the cycling pros took part in Paris-Nice, also known as the race to the sun - it starts in Paris and travels South ending in Nice.  The fifth stage started in Chateauneuf du Pape.The Catholic Church also welcomed a new Pope, which always reminds me of how Chateauneuf du Pape got its name (courtesy of Pope Clement V back in the 130...

  • As a Californian, I have felt the loss of such old names as Almaden, Christian Brothers and Inglenook.  (OK, I guess Almaden still exists as a mocking shell of its former being.  OK, I know it never was great, but their bottles did have corks.  Maybe I am the only person who feels a sense of loss of Almaden.)  Another of the old abused names is ...

  • Château Pape Clément Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Pessac-Léognan Blanc 2008


    Dark ruby. A classic expression of left-bank Bordeaux with blackcurrant, black cherry, leather, cedar, and cloves characteristics. Tannins have calmed down, so it's starting to drink nicely now, but still has lots of life left in it as well (note that we tasted from a Magnum). Read More

  • Wanting to refresh my memory on certain French vintages in the Rhône Valley I came across (as I often do) the Robert Parker Vintage Chart.  Parker includes vintages from 1970 through 2010 on his website and scores them on the usual 100 point scale.  He claims that scores of 70-79 are "average" while those of 80-89 are "above average to excellent...

  • Château Pape Clément Pessac-Léognan White 2000


    Classy wine from a transition era between old and new world bordeaux. Eucalyptus nose, with some plum and chocolate showing initially. This was the Merlot showing up early on, though after a couple hours of decanting, the Cabernet Sauvignon showed green notes mixed with the red fruits, soil, and oak. Very nice. Read More

  • My neighbors and I have a mutual love of wine, and have had several tasting parties which we've enjoyed a lot.  We did a blind one, and a non-blind one of very different world varieties.  We usually get bottles in about the 20-30 range, although that's flexible, especially going lower for the blind tasting.For this next one, I was thinking of do...
