    July 2, 2020 - At Maceo.
    Beautiful nose. Smoky, violets, classic mineral syrah.
    Similar palate but quite tight and very structured. One of the most tannic Allemand I had in years.
    Beautiful wine, built for the long term.
    To revisit in 2026.

    April 12, 2020 - Decanted ~1 hour before tasting and enjoyed for ~4 hours thereafter. Full, concentrated nose of meaty and earthy black fruit -- intense but still non-delineated. Palate is rich and well balanced. Approachable and enjoyable now as a hedonistic treat. Upside in 5-10 years.

    October 8, 2019 - Allemand Survey (Sepia): Super young now with big raspberry and blackberry nose that has just a touch of herb. The palate is polished, round and powerful with superb concentration. Primary in every way but drinking well. Significant upside from here.

    October 8, 2019 - A Survey of Allemand (Chicago, IL): I think Chaillot tends to be a better wine in the riper vintages, and with the 2010 side by side, this certainly holds true. There's certainly a very primary, juicy quality to the fruit here, and while this is slightly darker than the customary red fruit of Chaillot, there's still a bit more of an acidic lift to render this an exceptionally drinkable wine, especially right now. This bottle really demonstrates the silky style of Allemand; it's maddeningly elegant with loads of life still. I don't think this will have the longevity of the Reynard, but I certainly prefer drinking this right now.
