    May 1, 2016 - Great wine...enjoyed it over 3 days, still vibrant, with a lot of fruit.The only no note, is the high level of alcohol (15,5 %) which really burnt when going down while wine was drunk without food. Overall though a very nice wine.

    December 26, 2015 - Slightly oxidized. Otherwise ripe and rich with good balance and length.

    December 26, 2015 - Popped and poured. This is a solid purple wine with some modest sediment at the end of the bottle (it’s worth decanting or filtering). On the nose, I get ripe and very ripe cherry, kirsch, and garrigue. In the mouth, the wine is about ripe, sweet red fruits, with the fruitiness lingering on the finish. Overall, I thought this wine was a bit too much – it is not a wine to drink on its own, and needs to be paired with food. I thought it went well with some leftover Christmas ham. 91 points.

    December 24, 2015 - Decanted for three hours. Still young. Noticeable tannins which smooth out with time in the glass, lots of minerality, dust and CDP garrigue. Raspberries, blackberries, plum and licorice, but not overpowering. The alcohol is there in balance. Very good bottle of wine.
