Still Excellent, or better, Vacqueyras
by Fannin10580945
Well, it has been nearly a year since I opened the first one and rated it 4 stars. Two more have disappeared in the interim without my making any tasting notes, but after nearly a year I thought I ought to open another one and write a note. Still wonderful on the nose with some lavender, garrigue and blackberry. On the palate, it has come together and is wonderfully fruity and smooth with a nice long finish and smooth, well integrated tannin. Really nice! I'm calling it five stars, but it is really probably 4.6 or so. I could pickle myself drinking this!

This is an excellent Xavier Vacqueyras. Delicious black berry and dark fruit bomb. Drinking well now with aging potential if I can keep my hands off it. Better than most of the 2007 CNPs that I have tried and the better than Xavier's 2007 portfolio (Gigondas and CNP.) Nice find!
Complex; Mixed bag, but overall promising

Dark, full fruit, with plenty of alcohol heat (maybe a touch too much), and nice acidity as well. Herbs and stony minerality too. A lot going on here, and hopefully will develop well over the years to come.
