  • This was a bit fresher than the last bottle, more concentration and seemed younger. More power on the nose. A bit more floral, kirsch and smoked meat. Very good wine

  • Tar, still very fresh, sweet fruited, (been cellared in climate controlled conditions), fine grained tanins, no short finish here

  • Smokey, blod, pepper, sour kirsch, leather, dried figgs, well intregated oak but the age is a little much for this bottle. Even if it has complexity the intensity is diminishing and the finish is quite short and fairly flat. Still has some charm. Suprisingly it gets alot better with decanting. Liquorice on the palate appears. I actually got more positive towards the end, this is a very good wine and it is charmfull even if it is lacks intensity

  • Was hoping to taste more fruit but this bottle was on its way out. Still very enjoyable but lost much of its younger self.

  • A friend's birthday was celebrated with my last bottle of this wine. Popped and poured on an unusually temperate (weather, anyway) Arkansas summer afternoon. In fact, it took three tries with three different implements to remove the disintegrating cork. I recalled the previous bottles from this purchase being a little fruitier and more peppery--this was drying out just a little and the oak was taking more control of the nose and palate. That said, the moderate (13%) alcohol and mature flavors made this a worthy companion to our celebration.

    (Guigal Côte-Rôtie) Somewhat closed on the nose. Good fruit on the palate, with bags of tannins and good acidity. Needs time.
