    November 13, 2016 - Given some of the previous notes I was positively surprised by this bottle. It is well matured but still with some typical character. Overall a plesant feeling in the mouth. Not extraodinary, but very decent price quality ratio. Doubt there is too much more to gain from further ageing.

    March 13, 2016 - Dark dense colour almost Coke like. Dark berry jam, tar. Doesn't do much. Perhaps worth cooking with but very average, if not below average.

    November 2, 2015 - Very nice example of Rhone wines at a very reasonable price point. Mild tannins but nice fruit and acidity. Wish I had more.

    July 18, 2015 - Sulfur notes reduced after vigorous decanting/aeration. Plum and pepper aromas, with a little blackcurrent and vanilla. With food, a sawdusty oak note became quite strong and un-integrated (only 30% of the wine aged in barrel). There are several other faults too, including a stalky under-ripeness and too much barnyardy Brett notes. A touch overtannic too.

    June 6, 2015 - light body, lots of violets, touch of stalkiness
    Firm tannins, lots of perfume, peppery
    Really drinkable
    Still tastes very young though not entirely sure it will improve either
