Bright ruby. Vibrant red berry and cherry aromas, with a complex array of fresh floral and garrigue qualities adding complexity. Nervy, sharply focused raspberry and bitter cherry flavors stain the palate and zesty acidity adds lift on the close. More energetic and finely etched than the 2005 today. (JR)
Similar in style to the 2008, yet with more richness, the 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape is ready to go, with up-front spice, ground herbs, dried licorice and sweet black cherry-styled fruits. Medium to full-bodied, layered, balanced and beautifully drinkable, it should be consumed over the coming 5-7 years. (JD)
A great core of fig, blackberry and black currant fruit, with racy acidity and fine-grained tannins that are the hallmark of 2004, this shows flashes of graphite, spice and mineral on the long, precise finish. Big step up from the 2003. Best from 2007 through 2026. (JM)
Very dark and dense. Quite severe. Very long term. Great liquorice notes – extremely ambitious. Hold for some time. 18/20 Points
