    March 1, 2014 - Tenendo conto del prezzo pagato, un vino veramente interessante.
    Appena aperto al naso una macchia mediterranea intensa (ginepro).
    Subito un bicchiere e il resto nel decanter.
    In bocca subito, si sente la muscolosità e i tannini mordono con delicatezza le gengive. Ciò nonostante non manca l'eleganza.
    Nel corso delle 2 ore successive, il naso si è un po' spento, mentre il palato è cresciuto: la Salvia in primo piano, poi rosmarino, terra rossa sul mare, bosco mediterraneo.
    Qualcuno mi ha detto che il Grenache è il Cannonau francese. Sono d'accordo ma con minor forza espressiva in questo caso, ma una maggiore eleganza.
    L'avanzo in decanter al secondo giorno, tiene il passo. I tannini si sono di molto ammorbiditi, ma la forza propulsiva si è persa per strada.
    Vedo che la mia enoteca ha il 2010. Lo prenderò sicuramente.

    June 18, 2013 - ruby red, deep plum with a hint of powder, rich full heat and briary structure. Big wine, hot, unbalanced. Huge finish. Much better the second night, the balance is there and integrated

    May 20, 2013 - This was an 87 on day 1, 88 on day 2, and a 91 on day 3. Give this some time to decant and you will be rewarded!

    February 11, 2013 - Blind at store: stewed strawberry, cooked cherry, aged meat, juniper, anise, lavender and a touch of powdered sugar, garigue and decent amount of Brett/dried wild herbs-band-aid, and gravel. Very classic. Let's not forget a dose of pepper in there as well.

    December 1, 2012 - Grand Tasting 2012 avec 5 membres de la SCO (Carroussel du Louvre, Paris, France): Le cassis est très dominant au nez, à peine titillé par les herbes de Provence...un fruit emblématique pour qui aime le cassis.
