    September 19, 2020 - This is an interesting wine that draws you in. Lots of black fruit, including blackberries and bing cherries, blue violets on the nose, mellow tannins, garrique, a full mouthfeel and a long finish. A lovely Cornas for current consumption, but has years ahead of it.

    August 22, 2020 - Quite deep with meatiness and a wild element with intense iron and minerality. In the mid palate to finish it is black fruited and cleaner on the finish than I expected. Definitely a big intense wine, but not in any kind of modern sense of jammy Syrah, just intense deep meatiness.

    July 16, 2020 - Funky and interesting nose but quite disjointed in the mouth. Disappointing.

    June 2, 2020 - Pronounced and complex nose of green olives, blackcurrant, red plum, smoke, meat, wet earth, must, subtle oak influence. Deep ruby turning garnet on rim. Medium(+) acidity and body, high course grained tannins, long finish. Fruit has started to settle and the wine is entering its drinking window now - Would like to see how tertiary notes develop

    April 15, 2020 - First bottle from a half case purchased from the Dutch importer in 2016. At present, there is a 90 minute window after decanting to enjoy this wine at its peak. During this time, the wine displays a wonderful flowing finesse, with a rich but polished character, a refined Syrah without any rusticity or rough edges. During these 90 minutes it is a first-rate Northern Rhône, with moderate weight but real class and elegance. (93). After that, the nobleman turns into a peasant almost instantly. It's still a commendable wine at this stage, but it is almost unrecognisable. (90). My score holds the middle ground with fond memories of its state of grace, when it was a perfect foil for Tartiflette made with Roseval potatoes, Coppa Citerio, Roscoff onions, Zwaluwgekwetter cheese, white wine and cream.
