    June 28, 2021 - My last bottle. Early on in its life, this was the best vintage of Lapierre in the early 2010s (along with '14 perhaps, but 14s have always been more prickly), and it still is. Pretty cherry fruit, now mellowed out, a few nice secondary notes (baking spice, earth). As with the other Lapierres of this era that I opened recently, needed air. Not great on opening, I'd recommend a short decant.

    May 31, 2021 - This has aged gracefully. Still dominated by light and fresh red berry and cherry fruit with only few tertiary notes, some floral and mineral touch. Light plus bodied, sweet fruit, nice length. I think it’s now time to drink up.

  • Putnam Weekley Likes this wine:

    February 26, 2021 - A shocking turnaround after 24 hours open. Yesterday it tasted too old, with a bitter, desiccated finish. James was able to guess that it was Beaujolais. I was ready to lump it in with mismanaged Pinot Noir. Today it is as it should be: a gliding, savory, weightless mouthful of black and red, impelling little, curled harmonics of all the berry fruits. Yesterday I allowed that it might be good served with food; but as I finish this there is none on the table. Yesterday I allowed that it might be good while engaging in conversation with a cigarette-smoking lady; but as I finish it today there are only kitty-cats.

    January 1, 2021 - J'anticipais depuis plusieurs années la dégustation de ce vin.
    J'ai en cave plusieurs bouteilles sous différents millésimes que je conservent pour une verticale.
    Apparence rouge cramoisi assez dense.
    Nez de framboise mûre, brioche grillée.
    En bouche, bel équilibre sucrosité-acidité, tanins structurants et souples. Framboise, légèrement floral, rose-pivoine.
    Persistance moyenne.
    Un peu en deca de mes attentes mais tout de même bon rapport Q-P et le vin a maintenu sa fraicheur fruité.
