Avril, not in Paris

Avril “Clos des Papes” 1992 Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Rhône) – Old sweat upon opening. But it fills out well, with dark cherry residue dominant. It’s light and a little on the watery side, but long and authentic despite its generally wan nature. And cheap. Remember when Clos des Papes was cheap? (2/08)
