    December 3, 2022 - This was really good. Nose has mid red berries, but also some floral elements, hint of forest floor. Palate is fresh, initially mid red berries, some blueberries as well, but evolves on the tounge, adds a hint of iron as well as darker fruit. Satisfyingly long finish. Evolves quite a bit in the decanter as well, initially primary fruits, but adds complexity after an hour + in. A lot of good things going on here. Really like how the freshness of the wine meets the complexity of the palate. In its window for sure, but still feels like early days to me.

    September 11, 2021 - Done as a pairing for duck confit with a white chapoutier les granits ‘13- probably unfair as that clearly outshown this as a match- it’s clearly in its drink window but likely early and no rush.

    August 25, 2021 - Solid wine. It has one, not multiple, layers, with a richness that lasts about 10 seconds. A bit of tannic residue remains, but this is now mostly mature primary fruit. I'd rate this smack dab in the heart of its primary drinking window. In a vintage like 2011, will phase two in 5-10 years be better? For my money and remaining five bottles, I'll bet on the present over the future, and save the 2010s for later. BTW, a one hour decant seemed to hit the spot, without much improvement thereafter.
