Pas pris de note sur le coup. De mémoire, belle robe à peine évoluée. Beau nez complexe de fruits noirs, réglisse, des notes mentholée/camphrées. Bouche pleine, veloutée, aux tanins arrondis, mais avec de la fraicheur. Très bon
This should have been drunk 3 or 4 years earlier. Still there are intense aromas of black pepper, black currant and tar on the nose. On the palate, the wine seems livelier on day one with a pointy acidity, but a hollow mid-palate (almost no fruit left) and dried-out and somewhat saggy tannins. On day two, the acidity appears to be even spikier and the remaining elements of the wine seem to be on the ropes. Too bad i left it in the cellar for too long!

(Alain Graillot Crozes-Hermitage) Good colour. An appealing Rhône nose, a little woody at first, but soon opening out to reveal great earthy, funky Syrah notes. Good presence on the palate, just a little flesh, but certainly a nice, rounded feel. Integrated and ready, with nice character. Drink now. Good.
