"Hitting a natural 15.5% alcohol, Paul-Vincentís 2005 Ch‚teauneuf du Pape is decidedly more elegant and finesse-styled now than it was on release, where it was more dominated by its tannic structure. Still a youthful ruby color, it offers up a perfumed bouquet of kirsch and blackberry-like fruits, licorice, incense, Asian spice and forest floor. This is followed by a medium to full-bodied, seamless, elegant wine thatís lost all of its baby fat, yet still has a core of sweet fruit, fine tannin and a balanced, harmonious feel. Itís not a powerhouse, and is drinking nicely today, with another decade of longevity." - Jeb Dunnuck, eRobertParker.com #217 (Feb 2015)
