    January 5, 2022 - Certainly a very enjoyable SJ. I don’t get the current prices for this, though. 150-250 euros. Seriously? Maybe I should auction my bottles.

    Anyway, disregarding weird hype around this, the wine is great now and still seems to be developing. Classic north Rhône Syrah from a very good vintage and top producer. With mushroom risotto tonight.

    December 31, 2021 - Love the nose almost as much as I like allemand. Still too high acidity to me but gives it 5+ years it will come around. Nose 95+ palate 93+

    December 18, 2021 - Wow, 3 years have certainly added to the appeal of this wine. A nose of green olives is followed by a palate that has lost some of its fruit and become much more savory. An almost weightless feel on the palate adds to the appeal of this wine. Depending on what you want out of your Syrah, this wine will either continue to improve (gain greater aromatic complexity and increase its savory character) or be a point now (if you value fruit in your wine).

    November 19, 2021 - PNP. Fresh and very lively. Still quite young. Strong acidity to carry this into mid 20s. Very sophisticated Syrah with good further potential

    October 27, 2021 - Decanted off the sediment at 4, left for maybe 45 minutes in the decanter and then back in bottle, we started drinking it at 7. Black olives and dark fruit, some florals too. Savory in aspect, expressive, clean, and long. Well balanced too. Just a really good wine.
