    March 23, 2022 - Firing on all cylinders after an hour or so decant through a shower funnel. Really gorgeous. I suspect this wine is at its peak and is probably not going to improve much over time. You may want to consume yours soon.

    January 4, 2022 - Tasted blind as Day 9 of Blind.Faith’s “12 Blinds of Christmas”. The age of this in the glass made it hard to guess and I was nowhere near this. On reveal, I was surprised that this was only 2009 - it felt like a much older wine as it was very tertiary in character. Garnet coloured, the nose is old red fruit, tomato juice and leather. Even though it was some age, there’s still quite a lot of tannin structure and still just enough red fruit for balance. Good but feels like this sample has not ‘lasted too well’ as it feels older than 2009.

    January 1, 2022 - Drinking my penultimate bottle of this case and it is an absolute joy. The nose is still dominated by lovely ripe fruit despite its age and subtle tertiary notes are developing. As throughout its life the nose is more restrained than Beaucastel but therefore not less interesting.
    On the palate, this wine is getting juicier as it ages (?). It feels less full-bodied and less alcoholic than a few years ago. The acidity is crisp, highlights the fruit and produces a lovely mouthwatering finish. The tannins are still drying your mouth so this needs to be accompanied by something substantial. A bone-in ribeye did the trick.
    I have enjoyed this wine throughout the years but this is my best experience. Only one bottle left...
