    June 24, 2017 - So this was a funny wine. Prob the most 'out of sorts' of the group. One person noted they thought it was the most accessible. A wine that you could serve to ppl who don't necessarily understand wine and they would 'get it'. That's all prob true. It was darker, heavier fruit, a more intense wine. Somehow though being in the middle of the pack and not a rockstar means I have less of a strong impression than some of the others (Grange, Pavie, BHJP, Rayas).

    May 4, 2017 - Rare Northern Rhone Dinner (Tocqueville): Relative to the '06 Rostaing La Landone alongside this has more scorched earth and trace smoked meats than opulent purple fruit, although there is a lot of blackberry jam here too. Palate is round and balanced but seems to be holding back. Tight.

    January 22, 2017 - Austere and reserved. Pencil shavings, tar, leather, black cherry fruit. Medium bodied with firm tannins on the finish. This hasn't budged much over the past 2 years since last tasted.

    January 19, 2017 - VinoLaprisco Tasting (Restaurant De Karpendonkse Hoeve *, Eindhoven, Netherlands): Paired with the Cornas Champelrose 2005 from Domaine Courbis. This a classical and structured wine, very Cornas, very Clape, very 2005, but it does not scale the heights which the 2009 and (in particular) the 2010 attain. Pure and powerful, with restrained but beautifully nuanced fruit, concentrated but not at all big or brutish, vibrant acidity and quite dusty tannins, mineral and with a touch of eucalyptus, very good length. This is the Rhône equivalent of Léoville-Barton in a vintage like 1988 or 1996. Will age well of course (even on the third day it remains completely freshn tight and tannic), but I am not exactly sure where this is going. The quality is undeniable, its charms are limited.

    January 12, 2017 - An introduction to Domaine Laurent Boussey (Chez Kimelman): A late decision to open this so the decant revealed that the sediment was largely integrated. Deep purple - almost black. Despite palate and general fatigue, this wine's gorgeous fruit and remarkable concentration were undeniable. Whoa! I will let mine sleep as long as I can.
