I think Jasmin's wines are hit and miss, but this bottle is terrific. Vraiment Cote Rotie, there's a feminine side to the Syrah here. It moves with lightness and elegance and leaves marks of flowers, bacon, smoke and olives. There's a good level of acidity, the structure is tight and everything is in balance. Lovely wine. Great way to revenge the very weak 2004.
Decanted for half an hour and enjoyed with wagyu burgers at the Club. Red and dark fruits, pepper and cherry with hints of earth, tobacco and roasted meat underneath. Integrated and balanced with flavors of pepper, red berry fruit and leather. Lengthy finish. In a great place right now.
