Decanted and aired one hour. Clearly matured nose with some funk,pepper and dark fruit. Medium bodied palate, delivering vibrant acidity and firm tannins with liquorice, medicinal/drugstore notes and some dark fruit. Still alive and kicking with a nicely matured aspect. Overall slightly unbalanced though due to the relatively strong medicinal flavor but otherwise a decent developed syrah. 2:nd day notes: Wow, smooth, aromatic, nicely matured and balanced. Showing really great after one night in the fridge.
Still love this wine and have one bottle left. Classic northern Rhone profile with minerally dark fruits, like they came out of a briar patch... some nice funk on the nose as well. Medium bodied on the palate with plenty of acidity and dark fruits. Just a touch off balance to get to a 90. Nice finish.
I'm a bit surprised that JLL has this down as a modern wine. To me, very traditional Northern Rhone Syrah. Cool black fruit, smoke, black olives and tar. Not a heavyweight by any means, but here is plenty of character and plenty to like. I'm quite pleased that this wine has held up so well.
Très solide, j'adore, pour moi c'est tout simplement grand. Très syrah, très syrah du rhône, très syrah rhône nord, profil aromatique exemplaire, olive, poivre, violette, bacon, superbe, toujours ouvert peu importe la phase de sa vie, séduisant, engageant, et en bouche, c'est graillot, c'est généreux, mais avec une fraîcheur tout à fait impeccable. C'est grand grand grand, et ca coute que dalle...
