    October 9, 2019 - My last bottle and perhaps its best showing. A bit alcoholic and oaky when first poured, but after some air, this really came together. Fully mature, aromatic, silky and long. Great texture and breath on the palate. Went great with cassoulet.

    August 31, 2019 - Nez fruit noir et côté fumé. Beaucoup de finesse, équilibre idéal, c’est délicieux, un peu moderne certes, mais très agréable. 93 pts

    August 29, 2019 - PNP and enjoyed over 2 hours. Consistent with previous notes, this is ripe, balanced, and in a great spot right now. You could argue about the complexity of the wine, but still if you are a Northern Rhone fan and are okay with the ripe character of '99 this is really good and a great buy. A-

    May 4, 2019 - Dinner at Le Comptoir, San Rafael, CA. From 750ml.

    Popped and poured, this was accessible from opening and blossomed over the course of the evening. Classic cote-rotie smoke and wild game/damp fur aromas, with a core of dark red fruit and complicating cracked tellicherry pepper and purple flower aromas. Very nice and definitely entering its drinking window.

    April 28, 2019 - Not quite as strong as other recently tasted bottles, but not flawed. Still drinking well with good depth. The nose was dominated with red fruits, pepper, herbs, and floral notes. Still very smooth and nicely balanced on the palate.
