Mature bouquet with red berry fruits and some nutty flavors. Same on the palate. Fairly full bodied, a good balance between acidity and sweetness, some nutty flavors and round tannin. Although not really great, this is a very pleasurable wine.

In the bouquet minerals, blood, bacon and some sweet fruits. On the palate the same fruits, some oak, good herbs and spices, medicine and chocolate. A firm amount of sweetness and also a lot of good acidity. Beautiful tannin. A beautiful and complete wine with a good concentration. Early maturity now and around 2018+ probably showing even more complexity and finesse.

Beautiful bouquet with a lot of good dark forest fruits and some beautiful oak. On the palate juicy dark fruits, licorice, some mint, sweet licorice root, beautiful acidity and still youthful, soft and round tannin. Beautiful wine. Mature now and still some room for more time in the bottle. 2018+

Beautiful bouquet with red and dark forest fruits, sweet spices and a pleasant touch of barnyard. On the palate beautiful dark and red forest fruits as well, plums, earth and some autumn impressions. Beautiful acidity and good, round but powerful tannin.. Full bodied and a good length. A very fine wine with finesse and good complexity. Early maturity and lovely already. Will reach maturity around 2020 and might be even more complex by then. 92+ for tonight.

Deep and mature bouquet with dark forest fruits and beautiful oak. On the palate ripe red fruits, sweet spices, chocolate, vanilla, a touch of sweetness and also good acidity. Slightly sticky but overall mild tannin. The most beautiful wine from Brazil I ever tasted. 89 – 90

In the bouquet dark and red forest fruits, some bacon and barnyard impressions. On the palate the dark berry fruits are almost sun boiled but still ok. Also chocolate, earth and autumn impressions, a touch of sweetness but also good acidity. Mild tannin which is also a bit sticky and has a pleasant bite. The overripe fruits keep the score relatively low, but this is a very good wine from Morocco.

Beautiful and expressive bouquet with blackberries, plums, chocolate, earth and autumn impressions. On the palate a lot of chocolate, earth, some sweetness, good fresh acidity and quite sticky tannin. Overall the bouquet as well the taste are quite mature, but as a contradiction there is that firm amount of sticky tannin. That makes this a special wine and tonight’s bottle was not a bit too old yet, but I don’t dare to predict the future.

Blind note like the one of last month, different source. Completely different experience. Tonight the wine had a beautiful bouquet with autumn impressions and a touch of pleasant barnyard. On the palate soft and ripe red berry fruits, sweet spices and silky soft tannin, fine acidity and a bit drying in the finish. Beautiful wine and completely ready now.

In the bouquet very ripe red berries and possibly even some VA. The same ripe fruits on the palate, some spices like clove, chocolate and medicine. A touch of sweetness and soft acidity. A bit reductive as well. Soft and still slightly sticky tannin. Ready now and no hurry.

In the bouquet cherries, some oak and autumn impressions. On the palate mainly red, but also dark forest fruits, a firm amount of acidity and sticky tannin. Beautiful wine. This wine will benefit with 4 - 6+ years of ageing. So around 2020. 89 - 90

In the bouquet red fruits and some red bell pepper. On the palate small red berries as well. Candy acidity. Juicy and good wine, but I was less impressed compared to my tasting note of 2012. Ready now and the next few years.

Tonight’s blind note was almost identical to the one I wrote 8/24/2014. I can add a touch of petrol in the bouquet and candy flavors on the palate. Very tasty and clean wine. 87 – 88

Aromatic bouquet with flowers and some petrol. On the palate unfortunately slightly corked, but it was still good enough to taste and get an impression. A lot of sweetness and acidity and in beautiful harmony with each other. Tropical fruits as well. No score.

Very ripe dark and red berry fruits on the palate. Beautiful herbs and spices. A firm amount of good acidity, some sweetness and round and soft tannin with a good bite. Concentrated and well structured, beautiful wine with a good length. Beautiful already and around 2025 probably a real feast. 95++ for tonight.

Blackberries in the bouquet and chocolate in the mouth are the very first impressions. Of course there are more fruits, dark berries and cherries and beautiful garrigue and white pepper. Really beautiful acidity and tannin with a good bite. A very complete and lush wine. Beautiful already and around 2025 probably even a greater treat. 96++ for tonight.

In the bouquet good and ripe fruits, lush sweet spiciness and salty licorice. On the palate beautiful fruits as well, chocolate, garrigue, a firm amount of sweetness beautifully balanced by the acidity and powerful soft and round tannin. A very great and modern made wine. Good future as well.

Classical Southern Rhône bouquet with concentrated dark forest fruits, garrigue and earth. Same on the palate. Good dark fruits, some sweetness, but also beautiful acidity and tannin with a beautiful bite and soft bitterness in the finish. Although so friendly and open in this stage, this is a wine with a long future. 2025+ I scored it 97++ for today.

No really descriptive and detailed notes, but nevertheless not a wine to skip. The bouquet is concentrated and almost powdery, On the palate the same. Very soft and sweet, but also elegance. Is this wine porn? Ready and tempting now and for several years to come. 96+++

Contrary to the very open Barroche Pure, this wine is (already) quite locked, but the bouquet shows red and dark forest fruits, garrigue and white pepper. Same on the palate with beautiful acidity, firm tannin and a long, sweet finish. It is quite easy to taste the potential in this wine. 96++ for tonight, but around 2022 and 2025 this wine will really shine. 98+ almost definitely. Unfortunately no bottles in my cellar, but I hope my friends have some….

Concentrated bouquet with a lot of dark forest fruits and beautiful garrigue. Same on the palate. Perfectly ripe fruits, a beautiful balance between sweetness and acidity and soft still very youthful tannin. Still in its open and youthful stage this wine is very close to perfection. Around 2020 or a bit later it might score the perfect 100. For now 98 - 99+ Have a few, so there will be a follow up, but probably not before 2018 or 2019.

What a great wine already! Beautiful and lush bouquet with ripe dark fruits and beautiful spiciness. On the palate soft and sweet, but also beautiful acidity and tannin. All in a perfect balance. Some chocolate as well. A very complete wine. Delicious already and this wine certainly has the potential still being great in the 2020's. 98 for tonight.

Beautiful dark fruits, chocolate, herbs and spices in the bouquet. On the palate beautifully ripe fruits, lovely sweetness and firm but beautiful acidity. Soft tannin with a good bite and a great length. Extremely well balanced wine. Needs time to show all its complexity and finesse. Try between 2018 and 2020. Around 2025 I would like to taste this wine again to see what the real potential is. 96++ for now.
