  • Liked it better than my bottle 3 months ago. Richer and deeper, but maybe showing a touch of alcohol as well. Definitely a CDP hiding in a simpler designation.

  • Well, this is holding up well. Smooth, fresh and silky. Good cherry fruit and herbal notes. Well put together but lacking a bit of depth and complexity to go beyond its CdR pedigree.

  • Powerful nose of feasant, ripe strawberries, leather, roasted meat... surprizingly young, with red and black cherries, fresh, ripe tannins, mineral... almost no sign of age in the mouth... incredible for a Côtes du Rhone!!

  • More love for 2001 SoRhos. Best showing yet from this case. Tannins fully resolved. Red fruit driven with a nice touch of funk and herbs in the nose and on the palate. Like a mid weight CdP. Peaking, but should be fine for another few years. $12 well spent.

  • -- popped and poured --
    -- tasted non-blind over 4 hours --

    NOSE: light raspberry, strawberry and red currant mélange; strong mineral note; lightly herby; a touch smoky or a slight matchstick note; moderate- to moderate expressiveness.

    BODY: medium-light to medium bodied; garnet core with bricking throughout; color is of medium-light to medium depth.

    TASTE: good acidity; drying tannin; moderately strong garrigue note; clean, with light concentration of typical, Grenache red fruit flavors; hint of sandalwood; fruit is very light; lots of acidity; 14% alc. is not noticeable; no point in holding off on these any longer: drink now.

    B: 50, 5, 11, 15, 7 = 88
