Community Tasting Notes 16

  • Dave Dewar Does not like this wine:

    May 30, 2019 - First of two bottles. P&P. Dark ruby, fast legs. Aromas of horse sweat, red fruits, licorice all-sorts, chocolate, nuts. Flavours of raspberries, raisins, earthy. M body, M-H acidity, XD, M tannin. Alcohol was only 13.5% but came through strong at times. M-L finish of citrus pith. Would not rebuy. Will try my second bottle in a few years but not optimistic it will be any better. Looking at the many positive comments here, possible bottle variation?

    May 15, 2019 - Cool, medium-high intensity nose is fairly complex with peppery, black cherry, meaty, black plum, and savoury earthy aromas. It is quite dense on the full-ish bodied palate with smooth, refined tannins and just a touch of chalky grippiness. Nicely balanced with more black pepper, black cherry and meaty flavours, plus some stony minerality on the mid-palate. Acids are juicy. Excellent length on the long, earthy-minerally-savoury finish. Enjoy this classic northern Rhône Syrah over the next 3-5 years.

    February 17, 2019 - Syrah ronde et sans aspérité. Fruit typique.
    Mais rien de spécial.
    Pas vilain, mais routinier.

    December 2, 2018 - It's OK, but I don't find it as good as most people do. A bit harsh, IMHO, lacking complexity. It's strange, since I do love syrah...

    November 10, 2018 - Premier soir, un peu en retenu, bon mais sans histoire: 85.

    Deuxième soir, beaucoup plus épanoui. Produit honnête pour le prix: 87
