    March 28, 2020 - Tasted agianst the 2001 and completely smashed it!!! The 2000 is a much more integrated and harmonius wine that shows a melange of scents as well as tastes. Violets, red berries, herbes, mint, kirch, Black berries, sweet plums, leather, barnyard and sweet Tobacco are eksiltibetanere found in the nose as well on the palate. Only drawback is a slight unbalance in the aftertaste which shows top much acidity, but hey we are talking about a hairsplit From perfection! What the ....went wrong with 2001??

    January 31, 2020 - I am loving this gorgeous Chateauneuf du Pape! Still dark in color, the wine is rich, concentrated and delivers layer after layer of silky, opulently textured, ripe, luscious black cherries, spice box, black pepper and herbs. There is a tiny hint of spicy, dark chocolate in the endnote Blind, you would never guess this was 20 years old.

    August 17, 2019 - Needed 30 minutes to open. Lovely red and black fruits, mushrooms, spice, some Cedar, silky smooth. The fruit was somewhat subtle but also very ripe. Complete elegance in a bottle.
