Tasting Notes and Scores

94 DR

Some dried leaf character on the nose now, and the acidity is quite marked. Tannins are a little dry, and the overriding character is savoury, bright and complex. Salty on the finish, with more leaf litter notes. No great breadth or power, and not the most elegant vintage of Clos des Papes, but this still has freshness and clarity. Very successful for the vintage. Drink now. Drinking Window: 2023 - 2026
Tasted by: Matt Walls (at Clos des Papes, Rhône, 15 Sep 2022)
Part of Rhône vintages: four to lay down and four to drink now

Decanter

Vincent Avril fashioned one of the finest 2008 Chateauneuf du Papes of the appellation. Made from a classic blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah and the rest an assortment of permitted varietals, it exhibits a dark color as well as a bouquet of lavender, kirsch, licorice, loamy balsamic notes and hints of roasted meats and herbs. Evolved by this estate’s standards, it is an elegant effort with surprising density and richness. I actually prefer it to the 2005 (which was The Wine Spectator’s Wine of the Year). The 2008 should drink nicely for 10-15 years. Drink 2010 - 2025.
