    July 5, 2020 - This bottle showed signs of old seepage. The cork was loose and snapped into dust. The remainder of the cork was soaked and difficult to remove. So, I found myself filtering the wine through a paper towel, which removed a good deal of sediment, which deeply affected the flavor.

    Initially very truffley and some blackberry perhaps a floral note. The acidity, at first was pleasant. But it broke down quickly and became too vinegary.

    I reserved a bit in the bottle, unfiltered. The fruit was incredibly intact and tannins were lively. Never again will I filter with cloth.

    June 23, 2020 - Similar sensation as the previous bottle but less freshness with lots of sediments.

    April 3, 2020 - Herbs, iron, red fruit, decay and dried flowers. The palate gained weight and depth with air with ethereal sweet red fruit. Might not be as wow as 89 and 90, but it was not too far off from them.

    (Chave Hermitage) Great nose of leather, barnyard and red fruits. Palate was velvety and ripe with great length. Drinking great.
