    April 20, 2022 - Opened 3h before tasting, didn’t decant, just poured a little glass.
    Deep nose, smoked bacon notes, dark fruit. Palate super intense, it covers everything and tickles the sheeks before going towards a very long and super balanced finish. Superb. Very enjoyable now, generally Chapoutier ageing is much more approchable young than let say Guigal. Here what makes the wine is clearly the old vines.

    March 12, 2021 - Beaucoup trop jeune encore. Très tannique. Attendre.

  • vr.bart Likes this wine: 96 points

    February 14, 2021 - Excellently matured Syrah. Barnyard and blood on the nose on opening which gave way to nice bright fruity notes as well with air. Nice persistent aftertaste with smooth dissolved tannins and very nicely balance. Simply exquisite.

  • Schiffy Likes this wine: 95 points

    January 9, 2021 - Sweet, black cherry fruit with notes of grass, forest floor and lavender. After a decant of two hours (a must) this wine becomes beautifully integrated, complex and smooth. There are hints of grass on the finish that adds more complexity to this Syrah. While delicious now, this is likely to get even better over time.
