Wow, these Chateauneufs are gonna be special!!!

Postby Bob Parsons Alberta » Fri Nov 10, 2006 11:09 am

Last night (Thursday), I had a chance to taste some of the newly released CdPs on the Alberta market, plus a wonderfully bretty`95 "le Crau" from V. Telegraph. Tasting notes will follow asap, but wines included Beaucastel, Barville, de Cristia (2), VT, Beaurenard (2).
The reception wine was the `04 Beaucastel Blanc, the most expensive reception wine I have ever tasted!! But delicious, so stay tuned forumites.

Bob! What year(s) did you have? 2004? The few I've had from 04 have been stunning (if you like the style, that is).
I don't drink wine because of religious reasons ... only for other reasons.
