Tasted On 01/15/2010
Opaque purple color in the center...meniscus has a slight pink hue. After Audouzing for an hour and a half .... really different nose from the other 07 CdP I have been bombing. Animal musk , rose petals , anise , clove , and just a whisp of raspberry fruit in the nose. Anisette , smoke , and plum flavors up front in a full weight. Raspberry , tobacco , and black pepper in the mid palate. This is another huge wine! It tastes like it has a much higher percentage of Mourvedre than it actually does(20%). At hour 4 the nose is showing more fruit , but I will leave my other bottle alone for at least 6 months. People who complain that the fruit in 07 neufs is too overblown should try this huge sucker.
