Alain Jaume Chateauneuf-du-Pape Vieux Terron 2005

14.5% Imported by Old World Wines, FL

This was a fantastic CNP. Much better than the last bottle. This wine is the Barolo of Chateauneuf. Very tannic, striking, intense and structured. Cool menthol. Little to no ripe fruit. Angular and hard and smooth and balanced at the same time. Chewy. Persistence. Very fragrant. Some sediment. Unusual for a CNP. Can last many years. Highly recommended.
