Chateau/Producer:Moulin-Tacussel
Wine Name:Chateauneuf du Pape
Country:France
State:Rhone
AOC:Chateauneuf du Pape
Region:Chateauneuf du Pape
Wine Score:90
Notes:The wine's color is very nice, with a clear ruby at the center, but fading to a more bricky red and quite pale at the edges. The nose is light, but very rich, mainly fruity, with black cherry, creme de cassis, and a hint of pencil shavings. The wine itself is chock-full of tannins, very smooth ones, but also quite powerful still. The fruit is somewhat subdued by the tannins, but given a little time to breathe, a strong cherry flavor comes through. Overall this wine is quite good, but not a stunner. It's hard to say whether it needs a bit more age, or if it is getting past its prime.
