With dinner at Loulay last night. The whole table loved it...too bad it was their last bottle. Classic Rhone nose. Smoke and beef blood, leather, pepper, cherry, tar. Bright fruit with great acidity. Outstanding finish. Drinking overly well now.
had this wine roughly 6 month ago. After opening the bottle the floral and fruit notes were quite hidden, but after 12h this wine shows are very pretty nose of cherry, redcurrant and a bit blackberry. At that point the wood is completely "buried". On the palate the same showing. Pretty stuff. This wine scores with finesse, not with weightiness! Nice! btw: Had the 1995 vintage in 2011 and it was disappointing to me. But the 2005 is nice. Recommendation.
