    June 19, 2019 - A quick decant. A very nice and classically elegant Cote Rotie. Medium perfume of black fruit, olive and smoked meat. Palate is so elegant and easy drinking in this vintage. A burg lovers Syrah, for sure.

    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 drinkrhone.com:
    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.

    June 8, 2018 - Nose is floral with cured meat, olive, stems, blue and black fruit and minerals. Although the wine is young, the palate is silky and elegant with very nice grip. The acidity in the backdrop provides a good balance for the wine. 92-93
