  • Much better than a bottle consumed about 2 years ago. This opened up fairly well and displayed the Clos de la Roilette characteristics that I love. Drinking well now, but there seems to be enough balance and material to see this through some more time in the cellar.

  • Improved on the 3rd day. The nose calmed down to more subdued fruit, the palate opened up, although the finish became a little dusty.

  • Grape jolly rancher on the nose, a really quick palate, and a punch of fruity acidity and tannin at the end. A little more relaxed the next day, apparently a little too soon to be drinking!

  • Quite big and voluptuous for a Bojo, this was still good when grilling some spicy chicken outdoors. Maybe the normale version of this is my thing after all.

  • Bold dark color, not the most transparent Bojo out there. Even after several hours in the decanter the nose is still quite mute. It's dark toned with a good dose of dry, stony fruit and iron. Seems pretty pure in a nice savoury way, but also quite tight and closed. On the palate bright and lean, with the kind of tannins that seem to suddenly emerge out of nowhere and eventually really grab a hold of the palate. Nothing soft or luscious about this one, this is all about structure, tight dark fruit and minerality. While there are different shades to the fruit this frankly does not give much pleasure, but has a really high drinkability and performs its part well at the table. This will most probably develop well, although I have no idea what this will be like after 5+ years which it really needs. Not nearly as mean as I was expecting, but based on the producer's regular Fleurie this seemed quite closed. Still, the bottle was emptied rather quickly.
