WTN: 2000 Clos des Papes Chateauneuf-du-Pape

2000 Clos des Papes Chateauneuf-du-Pape - Dark ruby in color and quite clear. A fantastic perfumed nose with lots of floral notes, cherry, strawberry, fresh herbs, and a slight funkiness. Flavors similar to the nose, with cherry, strawberry, spice, herbs, and black pepper. Medium-bodied. Tannins are a little firm, but the wine is still very approachable and enjoyable, especially with food. The finish is of good length with an almost floral and herbal aftertaste. I thought this was really pretty, and a delicious accompaniment to a hearty coq au vin.

All the best,
