Community Tasting Notes (56) Avg Score: 92.0 points

  • Just read some of my previous notes and I am happy to say this wine came out of its dumb phase nicely. Beautiful, still somewhat locked bouquet with red berry fruits, garrigue, some eartiness and a beautiful dose of good oak. On the palate a beautiful and harmonious wine with good garrigue, pepper, lovely oak, a beautiful balance between acidity and sweetness and round tannin. Good freshness and really enjoyable now. Will drink lovely from now until 2020 and by then see if there is more future in this wine. Have a few, so there will be a follow up. 93+ for tonight.

  • Ouf, un vin OVNI! Toujours très sombre, le nez est compoté, sur les notes de prunes, de kirsch, et un peu de volatile. La bouche est veloutée et ronde, avec une impression marquée de sucrosité. Acidité faible. Les tannins sont fondus, la finale est assez longue mais chaude et capiteuse. C'est un très gros vin, d'une richesse impressionnante, mais ça ne plaira pas à tous. À l'aveugle, j'airais été vers un amarone, c'est dire. Mais dans ce style presque porto, c'est très bien fait et équilibré (malgré tout): faut juste le boire en ayant cette attente pour l'apprécier. Étrange que ce domaine soit parvenu à la popularité avec un vin si atypique (98 points Parker). L'effet millésime joue certainement, mais je me demande si le domaine n'a pas voulu forcer les choses (sur la maturité et l'extraction) justement pour se faire remarquer des critiques qui aiment ce style. 92

  • Crimson in color. 14.5% ABV. Heady aromas of red fruits, kirsch, garrigue and licorice. Medium body with medium acidity. Sweet on the palate and bordering on Port like. Kirsch liqueur, citrus and a hint of pepper on the palate. For my tastes this wine is just a touch too ripe. I can see the controversy surrounding this vintage. I'll roll the dice on my last bottle and open it in 2020 or so.

  • Bright fruit and still very fresh. Opened and consumed over 3 hours.

  • 3 hour decant.
    Very awkward nose of strawberries, pineapple and gooseberries... Low acidity on the palate, sweetish and muddled. Bitter bananapeel-notes on the fisnish, some fresh green herbal action, too. Don't know what to think of this wine... Disharmonious.
