Coulon "Boisrenard" Chateauneuf-du-Pape 1998

Dull red, brick rim.

Vinturi - cherry liqueur, dried herbs, grilled meat, hazelnut nose. Integrated.

Initially shows some roundness and huge cherry liqueur mid-palate flesh. Significant palate constriction appears in the finish, coating the side teeth in chew. Some celery/veg too. This stuff seems to need several more years in the bottle to get "there". Or some bacon. Interesting.

$50 on release.
