2019 Château des Fines Roches Forget Me Not  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 90

Smoky red fruits, a touch of citrus, licorice, flowers and spice get everything going here. Medium-bodied, soft, spicy, elegant and fresh, this medium-bodied, interesting wine is ready to go. I did not use the term "Interesting" in the pejorative sense. I mentioned it because I am fairly certain this is the only Chateauneuf that is produced using only 100% Vaccarese, hence the moniker, "Forget Me Not!" You can start drinking this on release. Drink from 2021 - 2033 90 Points

1944 Château des Fines Roches  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 75

Ash, tobacco, burnt leaves, smoke and earth scents, along with hints of red fruit in the perfume was the best part of the wine. The short finish offered some spice and kirsch. Still, it was an honor to taste a Chateauneuf du Pape made when while World War 2 was still waging. 75 Points
