    May 1, 2019 - Jamet and Rostaing at the Harwood Arms (Harwood Arms, Fulham): Medium/deep garnet/mahogany. Initially a little tired and stewed, this pulled itself together nicely with time in glass with florals, savoury game and underlying red fruit. Medium bodied on the palate. all savoury red fruits and florals, quite delicate and elegant with soft tannins, vibrant acidity and a very good length lightly grippy finish. Excellent, drinking well.

    December 15, 2018 - HDH December auction; 12/13/2018-12/15/2018 (Chicago, IL): Never been a huge Rostaing fan, but this is a really good one. Served blind, I'd have picked this to be far younger. Lots of generous fruit, there's an incredibly delicious attack here. Good earthiness.

    September 14, 2016 - Rare Northern Rhone Birthday - 1991: Overripe and rather opulent with bright red cherry fruit, gives up a few savory and spicy notes with air play. Robust and syrupy red berry fruit on the palate. Good, enjoyable, but lacking the complexity of the other wines in this outrageous lineup.

    February 8, 2015 - Tasted blind, this wine had a deep red/purple center with red rims. The medium+ intensity nose offered up super ripe cherries, lavender, brown spices, and soil.

    In the mouth, this wine was rich and ripe with great balance and length. I am not sure how much air this got. It seemed a bit hot in the beginning but later I didn't detect this issue.

    Overall, this wine seemed to be just entering the drinking zone. Will it improve with age?

    November 2, 2012 - Pulled the cork & slow oxed for 8 hrs -smelled good and proved to be a delicious bottle at a great point in it's life. Lots of dark fruit, delicacy complexity and softness - a seamless wine that was enjoyed by all.
