    June 13, 2019 - Burgundy-like style. More present oak than normal for the appelation, but at the same time plenty of fruit an freshness. A serious wine.

    November 17, 2018 - Good weight and structure, moreish nose, red fruit, earth, spice with decent finish. Needs more time for things to resolve.

    October 20, 2018 - Deep ruby colour.
    Medium intensity on the nose. Aromas of black cherry, black plum, blackberry, game, savoury. Muted but well-defined.
    Dry, high acidity, medium alcohol, medium(+) tannins which are ripe and grippy, medium (+) bodied with medium (+) flavour intensity. Flavours as above but more of the fruit evident and showing some hedgerow fruit/damson and dried plum character with forest floor. Long finish.
    Very good quality, the acidity is very high but the tannin and flavour concentration to balance this out quite well, though it remains very pronounced and sticks out slightly. Though the nose is a bit closed, on the palate the wine shows good complexity with well-defined primary fruit and also tertiary characteristics from bottle age. These flavours last to a long finish. The acidity, tannin and flavour concentration show that this wine is to drink now, but has potential for further ageing where I would expect more of the game/savoury flavours to develop.

    A tasty, intriguing wine. I would not guess Gamay blind as this is so unlike other examples I've tasted - it's a serious wine.

    September 15, 2018 - Light ruby colour, intriguing fragrant nose of raspberry, summer pudding, stewed cherry (kirsch?), cloves, a touch of violets, pepper, earthy notes, leaf mold, leather. On the palate quite tart fruit, bold acidity upfront mellowed with gentle but persistent tannins. Med + earthy finish. Really enjoyed this.
