    September 2, 2020 - Light red color. Hints of sour cherries, red licorice, herbs de Provence, raspberries and mint. Very soft tannins and very nice mouthfeel. Layers of sour cherries, raspberries, toast and mint. We purchased this wine on a trip to France. We paid way too much to ship wine home, but it's a great way to revisit a wonderful experience.

    July 22, 2020 - Decanted for one hour. Really great at this young age. Very approachable and fruit forward, while still maintaining great balance.

    July 14, 2020 - On the nose, sour cherries, redcurrants, a delicate ripe floral note with an underpinning of mocha. Crisp salty fruit on the palate with a dry tannic frame moving into rich aromatic dark fruit at the back. Like a tartes aux prunes with a crunchy salty crust. Delicious with smoked baby back ribs and mint buttered carrots.

    June 27, 2020 - Medium ruby turning garnet rust at the rim with a reflective edge. The nose gives off smoky notes of dark red berries, herbs de Provence, and new leather. The palate is medium-bodied, tightly wound in a silky texture with bright acidity. Flavors of dark red cherry, kirsch, black tea, hoisin sauce, and incense form the core. Finishes long and dusty with a streak of white pepper. Drink now with a 45-minute decant until 2035.

    June 21, 2020 - Brick red with rim variation. Cherry, raspberry, floral, herbs, mineral. Silky and creamy mouthfeel with a great spine of acidity. Elegance without power. Needs at least 3 hours decant.
