    December 31, 2021 - Sensational wine. Has significant structure to resolve yet—but showed rather explosive red fruited aromatics and herbal spice notes. Palate shows a slightly darker fruit profile, but well poised, fresh, and considerable depth. Lengthy finish. Excellent CdP in a riper exotic style—but this has balance and freshness and no distracting alcohol.

    December 6, 2021 - Decanted for 45 mins and served slightly chilled. Raspberry reduction, liquorice, tea, sandalwood and other brown spice, vanilla and cola beans. Sweet-fruited and so powerful the alcohol becomes disturbingly hot as the wine warms in the glass. After 24 hours, the feeling is much more relaxed and harmonious. Beautiful quality of fruit and really nice drinkable balance at lower temperatures. Can certainly be kept for several years, with a question mark for what will happen with the alcohol over time. Anyhow, we'll give it a longer decant next time.

    November 10, 2021 - This is reaching for the stars. While certainly too young, still, it shows all the virtues of this grand vintage. A cool presence, perfect balance, concentrated fruit with some accent on the Mourvèdre - this goes on and on. Wait.

    November 2, 2021 - 1 hour decant at Le St Remy from a bottle purchased from the winery
    This is a big boy. Concentrated , tannic and a mix of dark berries with some plum , but with still some freshness
    It’s balanced though, after reading other reviews I was concerned but don’t be, if your bottles provenance is good.
    At the end, the wine is great albeit too young. We have three bottles at home, we’ll wait five years before opening another.
