    August 21, 2021 - About the same as a bottle a year and a half ago. Inky color and a nice nose. Blueberries, stones, and a little tapenade. Solid finish. Solid wine, in fact - not a religious experience, but...solid. Better on the second night, which suggests (at least to me) that it has at least a couple more years of useful life ahead of it.

    August 9, 2021 - Continued to improve from my last tastings - needed air to show complexity. Black in the glass. Dark fruit, tobacco, saline and granite and touch of oak (with air only). Medium body, medium+ acidity, medium tannins and long finish. Palate consistent with nose. 92+

    July 2, 2021 - Blue and black fruits with very light olive, tobacco and floral notes in the background. Good concentration and acidity. I like this.

    April 27, 2021 - Needs a good hour or 2 in the decanter. Very savory, stony, and meaty with fruit tones only in the is Cornas tradition. Drink or hold another year or 2.

    August 12, 2020 - Nez intense de fruit noir (mûres) et d’olives noires. En bouche, c’est rond et assez puissant, avec des signes d'un vin qui me semble trop extrait. Ce n’est pas agressant, mais on a une texture ferme, avec une expression aromatique limitée, une impression que l'"Empreinte" de ce vin est en fait celle du bois. Pas mauvais, mais ça manque de charme et de distinction. Je suis perplexe face aux grosses notes qu'il reçut de la part de pas moins de quatre publications (VM92, WA95, IWC92, WS94)...pour moi c'est plutôt 88 pts

    p.s.: Je reste quand même de ceux qui pensent essentiel de se fier aux critiques, car on ne peut tout goûter. Mais ce n'est jamais une garantie de satisfaction!
