    March 22, 2015 - Saturated cork and signs of minor seepage. What can you say other than utter elegance, complexity and balance! Lingering savoury aftertaste that leaves you craving another sip, and suddenly the bottle has come to an end. A wine to just lean back and savour every sip of.

    January 15, 2014 - Cornas tasting @ Jeroboam Club (Bristol): Grilled bread, complex, mature notes of leather, spice, this is at another level of maturity and all the better for it. Full, mouthfilling, classy and very burgundian with a long finish. On returning to this wine over the hour it evolves, changes and is super interesting. Wow.

    January 4, 2014 - Outstanding bottle of Syrah. Nose of berry, tea and coves. Good black fruit on the uber-smooth palate, with a lingering finish. Fully resolved tannins, a true pleasure to drink. Seems like it will be on the plateau for a bit longer, but definately at a peak so why risk it?

    September 16, 2013 - Ageless N Rhone syrah. Popped and poured. Beautiful, expressive aromatics that don't seem the least bit tired. The palate backs this up, with impressively concentrated dark fruit that still seems fresh and vibrant. I could easily see a well-stored bottle of this showing even better in a decade or two.
