    February 21, 2019 - Loser Pays for Dinner - 1999 - 2012 N. Rhone Blind Tasting (Giando's): Tasted blind, my 2nd, group's 2nd! Now we are getting somewhere! The nose had a lovely red fruit and mint sensation with some spices that was fairly expressive. Medium body, red fruit, super elegant palate, spice. Although the Allemand concentration sucked me in to give that wine top spot, I think this ultimately showed better balance so I give it one higher point. Also I'm biased because this was my contribution to the tasting.

    February 17, 2019 - Still very very young. Needs at least an hour decant. Starts out with blackberry and violets. After some time there is tobacco and leather, and finished off with a bit of white pepper and olive. Medium weight but dense flavors. Clearly very good, but I would give this 3-5 years before really starting to drink well and it will go on for a long time after that.

    January 12, 2019 - Still early days for this, and it was also served at a rather cold room temperature. That being said, it was still classic Côte Rôtie, with lots of bacon aromas to go along with rare beef and warm herbal tones. I’m not sure it really shows any kind of fruit, but it has excellent depth on the palate. Focusing on it a little more, and it’s more like a tart cherry fruit, but it’s a support to the savory elements of the wine.

    December 25, 2018 - Had a glass on the second day of opening. Very elegant on both the nose and the palate, very floral on the nose with dark roses, violet, purple tulips, along with gentle yet seductive Asian spices sensation, on the palate, red purple berries, fresh flowers, minerals, modest spices, rosemary, and great lingering acidity, medium body with good structure.

    Background from
    94-95% Syrah, 5-6% Viognier from 95-100% Le Corps de Loup and 0-5% Côte Brune, whole bunch fermentation, 2 week vinification, wild yeasts, 4 daily pumping overs, aged 20% new, 80% 1-4 years old 228-litre oak casks 18-20 months, modest sulfur, unfiltered, 4,000-5,000 bottles.

    December 23, 2018 - Had over two days and very similar to the bottle we opened with BurgNick over the summer - aromatics were clear, baking spices, sliced black olives and flowers followed by a super elegant but gripping palate with more spice, dark fruit. Pierre nailed this vintage.
