I liked this quite a bit. I didn't find it to be oxidized in any way. That being said it is a wine to be drunk young. Fairly viscous with nice alpine herbal notes. Some sweet fruit and minerality too. Enjoyable with a Tuna Salad.

Solid QPR. We had this mango/passionfruit mimosas. It served its purpose.

I really like this wine. This is an incredible value. Glad I have more. Almost as good as the '17 Francois Carillon St. Aubin 1er Murgers de Dents de Chien at about 1/3 the price.

As you would expect, strong pear notes. Crisp and fresh. Nice palate cleanser. Works well as an aperitif.

This was nice, but I prefer the 2017 Francois Carillon Bourgogne over this.

Solid, light rose. 11.3% abv. A lot of tartaric acid crystals in the bottom of the bottle. I would drink these soon. I think the fruit is starting to fade a bit.

This tasted very young tonight. Almost grapey with a lot of sappy red fruits. I think it will gain some complexity with more time.

Very nice Porto! Fairly complex. A wine to contemplate. Went great with Fig Cake.

Fairly rich. Maybe some RS or a bit of botrytis, but delicious just the same.

I can't really comment on the wine because I used it Limoncello Spritz's and didn't taste it on its own.

I really like this. Nose of Vosne spice. Transparent Ruby. This is a fairly light and tart Vosne, but I dig this. Lip smacking red fruits, minerally. Long finish. Incredible wine for $30.

Rich dark cherry fruit. Earthy, umami, tannic spine. Showing tertiary characteristics. Delicious!

One of 6 RSVs in this tasting. This and the 2001 Sylvain Cathiard were the stars tonight and out classed the 1996 Hudelot-Noellat and 1996 Robert Arnoux, 1999 Robert Arnoux and the 2002 Louis Latour Les Quatre Journaux. Intense core of focused sappy red fruits. Zippy acidity with a nice tannic spine.

The color here is definitely advanced. Fortunately for us, this bottle didn't show aged taste characteristics in the glass. It was young and vibrant. However, I wouldn't wait on these either. Better to have them a tad too soon than a day late. A complete harmonious and seamless CC.

Last of 3. Needs an hour of air to show itself. Previous notes apply. Initially this had a menthol note on the nose, but an hour later that is gone. Oyster shell, saline, tart, still fresh. Lovely.

Herbal and stony. A tad frizzante. Wild mountain flowers. Light and very fresh. A tiny hint of honey on the finish. Terrific summer wine.

Solid. Crunchy red fruits. Cranberry. Fairly tart. Tannins are mostly resolved. Ready to go. Not super complex, but tasty.

Double decanted 2 hours prior to consumption. Soaring aromatics of sappy cherry. Lovely cherry fruit complemented by earth and a tiny hint of road tar. Fairly tart with nice grippy tannins. This should hold for years. A beautiful wine. Delicious.

Big, layered complex wine. Earthy, graphite. More savory than fruity. Best served with grilled meat!

Plummy fruit notes with a bit of bitter on the finish. My wife prefers other roses we serve.

Solid CdR. Flavor profile as you would expect from a Grenache dominant wine.

Excellent wine with real depth and complexity. Tannins have moderated. This has a sort of chocolate mole note to it. Went great with smoked BBQ ribs.

I was a bit disappointed in this. I had it previously and it seemed more dynamic.

For some reason this bottle didn't show as well as I expected. It was good, but not great. I was hoping for more. Some petrol, stone fruits, but it didn't have the next gear. I have one left. Hopefully, it will show better in a few years.

Good BdM. Better than the 2006 Ciacci BdM. Agree with Cooper's notes from June.

This rose is a bit more herbal with some hints of bitter. Not everyone will appreciate this aspect compared to many of the other Bandol Rose wines.

Excellent rose. Better with a year of age on it than last year. Really tasty and enjoyable.

Needs a 1-2 hour decant. This is lovely. A tiny whiff of diesel. Some stone fruits. A lot of slate with a slightly honeyed finish. Went really well with Chilean Sea Bass Ceviche.
