    January 23, 2020 - In perfect shape. Impeccable cork, nothing tertiary for this 15 years old bottle. Dark fruits with cherry liquor, blueberry compote, dried thyme, licorice wood and incense. 2004 is signing here with a decent concentration lifted ethereal freshness. No heat at all, at it's best and will last 10 years easy.

    January 12, 2020 - Perfect bottle, perfect cork.
    Tart Cherries, red fruits, bacon, grilled herbs. Lovely.
    Fresh and vibrant palate, silky, good portion of minerality and freshness, also juicy (red cherries) and a medium plus finish.
    Very enjoyable right now!

    Glasses used: Riedel Sommeliers Hermitage, Zalto Bordeaux -> more structure and grip in the Zalto, more harmony and drinking pleasure with the Riedel (Zalto being an effective tasting glass though)

    January 4, 2020 - Purple color with hints of brown visible on pouring but not in the glass. Unpleasant bouquet and flavor of barbecue and tobacco with no fruit in evidence. Nothing good to say. Much different than prior bottle, which was very pleasant. Disappointing considering how good Beaucastel
    CDP can be.

    December 27, 2019 - Stunning black cherry notes as we began the bottle suggested this was going to be excellent, but it faded a little and became less remarkable. Lovely soft mouthfeel. Time to drink up?
