    September 17, 2021 - Note after the fact, but a lovely wine… settled and graceful, yet a surprising amount of power remains for a 6 year old chiroubles

    May 22, 2021 - Cherry, raspberry jam, red berries and some faint herbs and foresty notes on the nose. The light to medium-bodied palate adds cranberry, tart forest berries, cola and decent acidity as well as some slight bitterness. Fine-grained, but still quite grippy tannins and long finish with some astringency, tapering towards tart red berries. The warm year is felt a bit, but is countered well by the structure of acids, tannins and the slight bitterness. Balanced, structured and drinkable. Drink now or hold a bit further if you prefer the structure over the fruit.

    March 16, 2021 - 13.5% alcohol. Very long high quality cork (like what you see on bottles of classified Médoc) with no wine penetration at all. Opened the previous day and drank a glass then, but this note is based on the next day tasting. The colour is fairly deep for Gamay, and it shows no sign of ageing.
    The nose has lost its exuberant youthful appeal and it is now fairly bland, with a note that is not far from acetic. The mouth is better with commendable liveliness and generic red berries; there is a rustic character to this bottle.
    Nowhere near my memory of earlier bottles; should probably have been drunk earlier (either that, or this particular bottle is off).

    January 11, 2021 - 13.5% alcohol. Very good cork, quite luxurious and with very limited wine penetration. The colour is dark, especially for Gamay.
    Magnificent nose of red berries, including wild strawberries, with some liquorice added; I could sniff this all day long. The mouth is nearly as good with a winning juicy quality but maybe less complexity than on the nose. Superb mouthfeel and long finish.
    Not a whiff of overripeness in this wine, whatever some say about the vintage. Pretty good grip too in spite of the overall smoothness.
    A near ideal balance and a repeat purchase for sure.

    September 27, 2020 - Initially mineral, earth, forest floor.
    At 3 hours this had the least expressive nose of the 3, palate being lighter, brighter with the gentler red fruits, cherries, violets, mineralite, least complex but felt most youthful.
    At 24 hours slow ox this remained complex, cherry, mineral, violets.
