    March 30, 2016 - Really love wine. compelling balance between elegant floral nose and earthy, plums and acid on palate. Definite depth and energy. Obvious tannins and acid become too dominant after about 1 hour in decanter. Would drink now and pair with aromatic but earthy food (think mushrooms).

    July 19, 2015 - Rhone Tasting: Smooth and earthy nose, peppery, silky plum fruit. Fleshy and silky palate, pure black cherries and plums, a good dose of peppered jerky, granite, fire pit and violets. Drinking wonderfully now, but could hold.

    July 31, 2014 - Well 92, okay it's Chave always a trill, maybe 91.
    For 15 years it is quite good. Nice "astringence" (french)
    not to hard. Very long. 12.5 % alcool (the norm in 1999)
    Nice Ruby color.
    Drink it up, can't be better!!!!

    May 23, 2013 - Nice wine. Very pure nose of meat and pepper, but fresh. Doesn't feel like a 14 years old wine. Good acidic back-bone. Finish is a bit short.
