  • Mørk, dyp, ren og delikat nese. Bjørnebær, pepper, lakris og urter. Frukten beveger seg i retning av skogsbær og jordbær. Saftig og fantastisk ren og moden frukt, tett og intens. Energiske tanniner, hissig syre. Flott lengde.

  • Potent nose of classic Hermitage with notes of violets, black fruits, camphor, charcoal, wet animal fur, etc. This bottle is quite firm on the palate and a long decant was needed to coax out its deeper flavors. There is beautiful purply black raspberry fruit with strong notes of black pepper and floral spice. Quite silky and pure with plenty of cool-weather acidity and character. The finish is grippy, succulent and moderately tannic with hints of game and leathers but it's still quite young and not showing much secondary flavor development. This is supposed to be an off vintage but I love its long term potential to be a classic Chave. 92+

  • RODANO AIS TORINO: Miele di castagno, corteccia del legno, mostarda cotta. E' caloroso e maturo, ma non bruciato dal sole né invaso dall' alcool. La bocca è un capolavoro di eleganza sferica e vellutata. La componente di verdura bollita e catrame preparano a un finale lungo, glicerico e maturo, ma senza peso. Regna un equilibrio estremo tra le parti e il finale fumé ha un tocco amaro ricco di fascino nobiliare. Grande vino, una seta.

  • Tour de Gaule d'anniversaire: (Ouvert 4h30 avant, non épaulé. 1 heure avant, décanté lentement, rincé la bouteille et remis dans sa bouteille d’origine. Il y avait un peu de lies (10cc environ))

    Le nez est légèrement fermier, puis ouvre la voie aux fruits noirs et aux épices. En bouche, ces arômes se précisent: mûres, poivre, olives. C’est tannique mais pas astringent, complexe et long. Je crois qu’il entre dans la fenêtre où on peut le boire mais est définitivement loin de son apogée. Ma 2e expérience avec ce vin - j’en encave sans faute et je le laisse dormir. 93 en ce moment mais probablement plus dans quelques années...

  • drank blindly, ripe red and dark berries, powerful and the finish is cold and subtile, refreshing acidity, ripe fine grained tannins, alcohol a little bit noticeable, drinkable over the next 8-10 years, 93+
