    January 1, 2020 - Nose: FRUITY: Raspberry, black cherries. Very pleasant very refined.

    Taste: Fruity, raspberry, blueberry, cranberry with a pleasant acidic finish. Tannins still présent but not unpleasantly so.

    Length:Medium/long : 7s, but tarte lingers further.

    Drinks well now but tannic content makes me believe it can âge another 2-3 years.

    November 3, 2019 - Plums, garrigue and spices on the nose. Pure, medium bodied, intense cherry compote laced with soft round tannins. Excellent.

    October 15, 2019 - Lots of florals on the nose and palate - almost candied flowers in taste - along with strawberries, raspberries and red cherries. Hints of herbs, spice and stones. Nice and balanced - whilst being a big wine, there was not perception of alcohol heat. Good length and pretty silky tannins at this stage of its life. Really enjoyable. Not sure how much it will improve with age given its approachability.

    October 12, 2019 - My tasting curiosity is my own nemesis at times. This needs more cellaring, similar to many past vintages of Beaucastel. Upon opening, lots of fresh strawberry notes that I typically associate with grenache, plus pronounced grainy tannic notes. With a few hours of decanting, it became more mellow but also more muted and unfocused. It tasted too raw and not in a great place, overall. Hold. 91-94pts (with more time).
