    July 24, 2021 - On the pop and pour, this is quite dark in the glass. I’ve had a lot of Oregon Pinot recently, and this is darker and denser than most of those. The nose is very funky, with loads of barnyard and cheese, a good heap of green pepper, and maybe just a bit of steamy, stewed cherries in behind. The front end of the palate has a bit more of the red fruit, but the mid-palate still had a lot of both the green and the barnyard. There is structure here, and a fair amount of acidity, although the wine still comes across as a little burly. The finish lasts a good long while, but it is not entirely balanced. I try to use the same scale as most publications, which makes the 86 equivalent to roughly “you can drink this, but you’d probably prefer to have something better”. Given that I paid, direct from the winery, $102 all-in (price, shipping, and tax), that makes this one of the poorest values I’ve ever had. 2011 was a below-average vintage, so I’ll have to hope 2012 and 2013 came off a bit better.

    December 4, 2020 - Most of Ilan's '11s have surprised me to the upside. Not this one, which showed muddled and green.

    November 8, 2020 - This has a beautiful light red, nearly limpid, color. It is very red fruited, and light bodied, it is subtly earthy, and lightly of cherry iron, if you will. I would say it was nearing lovely, but it was a little drying and slightly thin in the middle. I cannot say what the future will hold. My guess it will walk a fine edge, will it plump out and put on weight, or stay pretty and lovely but come up just short and thin?

    November 14, 2019 - Pale to medium ruby, highly reductive/sulfur nose, followed by dark spicy black cherry, red cherry, and subtle clove, round but broad fruit on the attack followed by sweet berry fruit, soft tannins and juicy acidity, finish is a bit odd with grilled meats, rhubarb, Asian spice but also layers of ripe red fruit and earth, hmm

    2/14/21 Second (and thankfully last) bottle of this '11 Mazoyères was hideously flawed, from the get go, corked was dry and broke on a gentle removal, nose had strong reduction and palate, well...was unpalatable, down the drain, washed the glasses and tried not to talk about

    March 10, 2019 - BYOB "Typical classic wines from classic regions" (Sollentuna): Served double blind.

    Much more transparent color than the Buccella Cabernet Sauvignon and the Clos de l'Obac served side by side. The dark wild berry driven nose made me think of Morgon Côte de Py 2010 by Foillard or such producer. When I went back to the wine later on there were more raspberries and a stemmy note that made me (second)guess (myself) and had this as Côte de Nuits Pinot Noir. Highly recommended if you can find.
