  • opened this when the bottles we had decanted ahead for the Super Bowl were drained, this performed very well right out of the bottle, very nice with med plus body, fruit driven but with nice acid for balance and some iron (clearly syrah but almost had a gevrey iron element, minerals etc)... really good and would be with food or alone, bottle drained quickly

  • Mature appearance - garnet with some brick red at the edges. Decanted for three hours and it blossomed into a complex aroma of tertiary notes around a subtle core of strawberry fruit. Delicious - drink now because it's ready and has nowhere further to go.

  • Bit of a chemical nose, hint of honey. A nice unique old wine, but nothing to want to repeat.

  • This was a very good find from the Wine Society cellars in Montreuil. We opened this and a 2007 Chateau Talbot to have with our main course of duck with green olives. Both opened 4 hours before drinking and decanted the Paul Jaboulet (obvious sediment). A pale tawny edge reflects its age. The nose is not strong but fully developed and slightly spicy. The palate was one of 'mellowed aggression' - good body and intensity - cedar, white pepper, black fruits. This needed the time to develop and is now round and harmonious. Don't leave it much longer.

  • Disappointing; smelling of Vaseline.
    Pale and brown; possibly storage issues, possibly bad bottle. Good thing to have an alternative

    From memory of last tasting, not really surprising
