    March 7, 2020 - I’m careful not to change the drink by date because my wine has been cellared at 57 degrees since I bought it, but I believe now is truly the time to drink. I tasted this wine 3 years ago and it had plenty body and tightness in it. Color is still ruby red, prominent red fruit and vanilla in the aroma. Fruitiness carries in the flavors with a richness that goes all the way to my throat. I opened this bottle to pair with my coq au vin tonight, which was the right pairing; but I poured another glass post dinner just to enjoy the tasting. I’m glad I have another bottle to try next year.

    May 13, 2017 - Took my time so I could taste it accordingly. At first taste the wine still has plenty of life left. Fruity, herbaceous, espresso and some very present tannins. An hour's decant smoothened it quite a bit giving it a raspberry mocha finish. Interesting.

    March 18, 2016 - Solid CdR village wine. True to type, nothing not to like.

    August 30, 2015 - great value and although it recommends drinking up this year the few I have left I'm not going to be in a hurry.
    Not as vegetal as some cdR but solid fruit and balanced tannins makes this a good companion with many dishes..

    August 3, 2015 - Terrific value. As good or better than their CdP right now, although I expect this is more of a wine to drink young versus the CdP that should be aged.

    Had a pleasant, pleasant raspberry flavor. I wasn't expecting it to be this good for the price. The bouquet and taste weren't overly complex but with smooth tannins and great flavor this was quaffable by itself or paired with food. Terrific value and great daily drinker, recommeded as a buy if it pops up again.
