Quite nice for a Crozes, this is dense and rhoney. Lots of non fruit things going on here, quite a mouthful but nothing I would consider not correct. Earth, pepper, I can dig figs as someone else said, a little camphor but not bad, overall a very nice bottle of northern rhone syrah that is of place yet not cornas or cote rotie. Nothing wrong with this!!

My dear, I fear your horse has a bit of a flatulence problem. We shall see if it passes overnight and revisit tomorrow.

Day 2, less methane, more wine. But still not for the Brett-averse, at least this bottle. Drinkable but not terribly enjoyable.

I do not understand this wine at all. There is fruit, identifiable as Pinot Noir. I like Pinot Noir. But it's sweet. No alco-burn, just confected fruit. I want to like it because it's not a high-alcohol, overextracted monster. But does this have RS? Maybe that's not better than excess alcohol in a Pinot. And there's oak. And a little oak is OK with Pinot, if it's a part of the whole. But this isn't. It's like walking into a room and there's a vat of sweet Pinot fruit in one corner and an oak barrel on the other side. It's that separate. Maybe the wine is in an awkward place? It's 7 years old, maybe more time would bring some focus? But right now, I'm not enjoying this bottle - I see some interesting things but it's a bit like a 7 year old human....some things that make you think everything is going to be OK and some things that make you sit up in your seat and wonder if it's all going to turn out well.

really quite delicious. Clearly Pinot, good structure. A pleasure to drink and goes really well with food - enough acidity to cut something fatty like homemade porchetta from belly.

Good wine, very drinkable and a nice match with seafood. But lacking the explosive taste of the 2002 consumed alongside. The 2002 was super, this was merely fine.

delicious wine. Drank from 375 with the 2000 (375) and the 1998 (750) and some delicious seafood. slight touch of botrytis, nothing like the 1998 which was a botrytis-bomb - this was light, crisp and delicious. yum.

quite closed. Time and swirling gets some nose that is quite typique. This should be delicious. Later. not now.

Just outstanding. A little closed when initially opened, but after about an hour in the glass, she woke up. This is what burgundy should taste like. Wow. I wish I had bought more.

Outstanding wine. Light, yet intense...sweet, yet balanced. Boy, I wish I had more, this is what aged riesling should taste like!

Awful. Too ripe, this was a wine beverage, not a wine with any sense of place. Glad it was my only bottle.

Decent CalCab. Drinkable and fruity. Scratched the Cab itch with a grilled steak.

Class in a bottle. Great depth, drinking very well now, but there is certainly no hurry. What all Burgundy should be.

Excellent wine, drinking at peak now. Tasted blind in a flight with 3 other wines: a Mugnier Musigny, a Roumier Chambolle Les Cras and a Richebourg and it was not completely out of place. A little more rustic, with some poop and a little iron/blood, but really excellent burgundy especially for the price. I would happily drink this wine every day.

Just excellent. Had it with homemade Duck Confit and it was perfect. Some fruit, but not too much, good minerality.

Started out weird, fruity like Gamay and a little simple. After about an hour, gained complexity and Northern rhone Syrah character. Very nice wine and an absolute steal at the price.

Just what a QbA should be. Light, alcohol in check (no heavyhanded chaptalization) - excellent wine

Pretty good, for a California Merlot. Lousy match with Chicken Saltimbocca and bowtie pasta. Is this really Chianti?

too young. Decanted for ~2 hours and was still disjointed. All the components are in place, but not together yet. Improved after several more hours, and was even better on the next day. Let them sleep.
