Medium red. Deeply concentrated, powerful, game-accented red and dark berry aromas. Inky, chewy cherry and cassis flavors are framed by solid, chunky tannins, with a subtle note of smoky herbs. A bit tough to read today but there's clearly outstanding material here.

Hugely ripe, almost overripe nose. But then on the palate it’s all held beautifully in check. Bravo! A real balancing act. You could almost lap this up now. Smooth and suave – positively a lounge lizard. Very tight fine tannins on the finish – this should have a really long life. Inredibaly there is no heat on the finish despite that ripeness on the nose. Wjhat a bravura performance. Silght dustiness on the finish but such FRESHNESS on the finish. Ninety year old Grenache vines on varied soils. Fermented in epoxy-lined concrete to minimise oxidation.

Deep, with huge aromatics of lavender, crushed pepper, garrigue, sweet black cherries, raspberries, and truffles, the 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Barbe Rac is full-bodied, deep, rich, and intense. It will drink well young, but age for a minimum of 15 years. Chapoutier has begun to move these wines out of neutral wood into complete aging in tanks in order to preserve more fruit.

A very supple, stylish version, with lots of cherry and plum fruit caressed by notes of sandalwood, vanilla and mesquite. The long, fine-grained finish just won't quit, offering mouthwatering minerality and an alluring Burgundy-style perfume. Very Rayas-like in profile.

A beautiful nose of red raspberries, strawberries, pepper, and fresh cut herbs. The palate was huge and intense -- gobs of red fruits, white peppercorns, and more herbs. The tannins were just beginning to broaden and sweeten. Finish went on and on. Another bottle that might love a couple of more years brooding quietly in a dark corner.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
