    December 24, 2021 - Good local feel here with plenty of garrigue showing. Relatively light, easy going, very open and drinking perfectly. Plenty of primary fruit still here, fine harmony.

    January 13, 2021 - 70% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre, 10% Counoise/Cinsault
    Damask purple-red. On the nose: geranium leaf, saddle leather, dried rose petals. Coming together. Tannins almost softened out. Medium to medium-full; dark red/black fruits, some spice, depths of flavour. Fairly elegant for a C-d-P.

    December 26, 2020 - Decanted one hour. Menthol and cherries. One dimensional, as it tasted as though Syrah was somehow dominating this grape cocktail.

    July 21, 2019 - Pretty good CdP here, on the riper side of medium bodied, fleshy and juicy with savoury and herbal flavours pushing through. Showed a slight spike of alcohol and acidity for me but still feels in balance, some nice undergrowth and animal complexity adding some interest. Quite a full and long finish, tannins not aggressive. Like it at this point, may not be a real long termer but OK for a while yet.

    May 17, 2017 - Top notch Chateauneuf du Pape. A wine of great clarity, texture and balance. Soft, fruity and deliciously dry.
