    October 4, 2021 - Classic CdP from a classic vintage. Grenache-based potpourri of flavors; wild game, aged cedar, black tea, balsamic, smoke, sage & rosemary.
    Solid cork, very light sediment, drink it now!

    August 14, 2021 - Slightly oxidised. Funky nose. Some blew off after a while.

    July 31, 2021 - Bottle opened at 4:15 PM, decanted at 5:30 PM, served at 7:30 PM. Slightly hazy medium ruby-rusty brick red color with colorless rim. Funky at first. After 30 minutes in the glass (preceded by 2 hours in the decanter) the bouquet freshened nicely, offering sweet ripe raspberries, boysenberries, pomegranate, red currants and their liqueurs; garrigue, mincemeat, fried bacon fat, lavender, and herbs de Provence. Similar on the palate, smooth and mellow, seamless, lovely balance, medium body, lingering finish. Improved with air over several hours; last sip was the best.
