    June 11, 2020 - About 2 hours of air. Drank in Grassl Cru.
    Appearance is clear, medium intensity, ruby colour. Legs.
    Nose is clean, medium+ intensity, with aromas of dark smoke, incense, blackberries, black cherries, earth. Developing.
    On the palate, dry, high acidity, medium+ alcohol (13.8%), silky smooth refined medium+ tanins, medium+ body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of lush black cherries, blackberries, dark spices, smoky incense, earth and stony minerality. Long finish.
    Very good quality. Really lovely concentrated yet polished and refined Mourvedre. Still feels like it could develop over the next 3+ years.
    120 year old vines. 100% whole cluster.

    August 21, 2016 - Loved this. Juicy, sappy, open-knit and bright, but also seriously compelling and unique. Has the D&R signature but has the extra oomph I sometimes wish these wines had.
