A Rendezvous with CDP

Dark was the bar and spicy the wine. Ofcourse I’m talking about Chateauneuf-du-Pape (CDP). Dim lights in the Blue Bar at Taj Palace, New Delhi prevented me from seeing the colour of the wine, so much was upto the nose & palate to know the wine. First few sips conjured up the word ‘moderate’ – but hey this was CDP – this should be anything but moderate. So I did what all wine aficionados do when in doubt – I let it decant in the glass for half hour…and Bang !! The wine exploded with pronounced aromas & flavours of black fruit, pungent spices and prominent oak. All this supported by a high alcohol content sent an immidiate signal to brain saying “Happiness”. Thank stars I was not driving home that night 😉😊
