    September 16, 2019 - Oops. Given my success with the 2011 Brézème Pergaud recently I thought the more solar vintage form the earlier maturing St.J-St.A site would be open for business. Not really. The pedigree and depth of the wine is apparent, but the structure dominates today and not even a ton of coaxing will bring it fully out. That being ssaid, it was still enjoyable and if I didn't know what more ready bottles of this tasted like I would have been happy. I don't think it's that far, maybe 2-3 years before I should dip back in but it looks like I've been drinking one a year, so that'll probably happen.

    January 20, 2019 - Lovely, almost “Burgundian-style Cote Rotie” in its deft, well judged, use of Syrah. Gorgeous aromatic nose and a cherry/red fruit palette with perfect acidity and well integrated tannins. My first experience of Texier, courtesy of a generous friend. It won’t be the last. Clearly a wine-maker with fine judgement.

    August 8, 2018 - Wow, what a wine! This was actually best on Day 4 (we didn't finish on Day 1 and revisited it then, not in-between). It had started to become very silky, complex and intriguing. Loved it. Always a fan of his wines, but never had this, and came across it on SommSelect. Very reasonable price for the quality.

    Had dark fruit, Very good acidity, soft tannin that attained a little more angularity and structure the next day. Very savory. Age had been kind to it. Good wine, went well with grilled lamb (but I guess we expect it to)

    June 9, 2018 - PnP, with notes of black cherry, tar, and smoked meat on the nose. Black cherry and tar up front on the palate, with background floral notes and ripe tannins on the finish.
