The 2008 sports a lovely black cherry, iodine and cherry pitnose, comes onto the palate generously juicy with under tones of game
Clos St Philibert
Here the nose is notably more reserved though just as pure and ripe with a similar nose of white orchard fruit along with spice, lemon hint
Châteauneuf Du Pape
An outstanding Montrose, the 1989 is one of the vintage's stars. It possesses an opaque dark ruby/purple color, a sweet nose of minerals, black fruits, cedar, and wood, dense, medium to full-bodied, highly extracted flavors, low acidity, and moderate tannin in the long finish.
