    February 13, 2020 - Dinner at the new TableAt7. Bottle off the wine list.
    Appearance some fine sediment, deep intensity, rby colour. Legs.
    Nose is clean, medium+ intensity, with aromas of vanilla, toasted wood, smoke, blackberries, black cherrirs, dark floral spices, fresh blood, red meat, undertone of grilled bacon. Developed.
    On the palate, dry, medium+ acidity, medium+ alcohol (13.5%), fine high tannins, full body. Pronounced flavour intensity, with flavours sweet vanilla, toasted oak, dark licorice, sweet spices, dark red cherries, black cherries, blackberries. Smoky bacon meat in the background. With more air, the vanilla-coated extracted blackberries dominate. Long finish.
    Very good quality. Despite my traditional style leanings nowadays, I have still thoroughly enjoyed Guigal's wines. Modern and enjoyable. Really does feel like a mini Lalala. The oak is very much part of the whole experience, luxuriate in it rather than keeping it hoping for it to integrate. Drinking in a great spot already.

    November 29, 2019 - 2009 and 2010 Côte-Rôtie tasting (Magnum Society, Wellington, New Zealand): Primary, deep, dark colour. A beautiful, lush and full, perfumed bouquet showing dark fruits, all spice, pipe tobacco, violets and other dark florals and a hint of black pepper. An opulent, full entry, initially sweet-seeming. A lovely wine, balanced, powerful and restrained. Multi-layered, complex and very long. Much more open and accessible than the 2010. My WoTN, judged on its performance on the night. Also, group WoTN. Some tasters - however - found others of the wines - particularly the 2010 Jamet and Guigal - more interesting, which I could understand. Perhaps in a few years, I'll agree. Hedonistic.

    Group: Bronze 0 Silver 4 Gold 25 WoTN 13 (most preferred). My rating: Gold and WoTN

    November 22, 2019 - Wow. Right out of the bottle, it was surprisingly drinkable. Dark purple with a rich nose dominated by wood and dark fruits. Dusty tannins (as expected) with a lingering finish. After an hour of decanting the wine reveals notes of cedar, blueberries and plums, cinnamon and cloves with the merest hint of vanilla. The spice, tannins, fruit and acid meld elegantly into a rich mouthfeel with a long finish.

    September 19, 2019 - Decanted for 30 min, deep ruby, dark fruit & a touch of bacon, med/firm tannins, mod/long finish; very good but young, needs time

    Better on day 2 (raised a point); definitely hold for at least a couple of years
