    November 4, 2019 - Beau nez invitant. Ferme et serré. Plutôt d'un pièce, unidimensionnel manque de fruits et un peu asséchant.

    November 2, 2019 - Drinking well right now. Deep ruby color, yet very clear. Mild and very fresh red fruit, and some sweet plumb. Lovely round mouth feel, but with a little bit of tannin present, so still a good amount of time to go with this one. Lovely long finish. Is more refined than I recalled previous Beaucastels. And the viniculture (pretty much Biodynamic despite the fact that they are not certified) comes through as a very clean wine - in both sight, nose and pallet. Almost no sediment, which is very different to other 10 year old CNDP that I have had recently (Pegau being a good example). Am not always blown away by this producer, considering how much it is "sold" as THE leader, but on this occasion it lived up to its reputation. Not as jammy and "Cal Cab" as it something can be, which is a good thing in my view.

    November 1, 2019 - Surprising that nose quite closed even with time in the glass - just a phase in its life. The light nose is mostly sweet blackberry. The entry and mouth is another story with a heady flavor profile of dark fruit, tobacco, leather, chocolate, and spice. Finishes quite long with heavy spice and tannin backdrop. This has years left of course. I would wait a bit more on this, but bones for a nice future as it hopefully gets it's nose back.

    October 27, 2019 - PNP. Some fruit and not much more. Disappointing and hoping next bottle will reveal this one to be an outlier.

    October 11, 2019 - Encore jeune certes. Des fruits bleus, un peu d'épices. Le vin est long, mais sa lourdeur et la chaleur laisse perplexe. Pas un style qui m'interpelle.
