This 20 year old Chateauneuf is showing its age very well. More towards the Burgundian style with tremendous tertiary notes of potting soil and forest floor but still complimented with classic garrigue and bret. The fruit is still quite prominent after several hours of decanting; mostly tart red cherry with a slight hint of cassis. I wouldn't wait much longer to open this fabulous wine. Tasted March 2018.
