Tasting Notes

The powerful, massive, tannic 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve des Celestins is a 30-year wine. Its dense plum color is followed by huge notes of Asian hoisin sauce, smoked meats, beef blood, kirsch, figs and black currants. This full-bodied 2005 may be the biggest, richest Chateauneuf du Pape Henri Bonneau has produced since his 1998. The tannins are still frightfully high, and the wine is structured and backward, but so, so promising. Forget this 2005 for another 5-7 years and drink it over the following three decades.
