Hitting a natural 15.5% alcohol, Paul-Vincent's 2005 Châteauneuf 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 that's lost all of its baby fat, yet still has a core of sweet fruit, fine tannin and a balanced, harmonious feel. It's not a powerhouse, and is drinking nicely today, with another decade of longevity.
