November 23, 2019 - Red cherry and strawberry and some beautiful mature oak and stable. The acidity is still fresh and make the wine wonderfully refreshing
November 22, 2019 - Tannins are quite soft, red fruit is ample and showing secondary development. Improves substantially with air, the initial funkiness on the nose is replaced by fruits and enticing spices.
November 17, 2019 - Vin d’anthologie. Décanté 3 heures avant souper. Nez complexe, prune à l’ouverture puis poivre, cassis, cuir, réglisse, tabac à la fin. Tannins fondus. Complexe et long. Encore puissant . Probablement à son apogée, peut tenir la route encore longtemps. Heureusement il en reste. Parfait avec côtelettes d’agneau sautées à l’ail puis tomme fruitée rustique. Je ne boirais que cela..
September 21, 2019 - Dry and classy. Very sound, healthy fruit, quite light an elegant for the genre, certainly better than expected. Received much praise around the table. A point, I think, but no signs of fatigue
September 18, 2019 - This was an aged, smooth, woody and delicious wine with good fruit tones. But I wonder if I decanted it for long enough. Is an hour enough for Hermitage?
August 22, 2019 - solbær, plomme. Uren frukt, grumsete og flabby. bra struktur. Ingen stor vin i meget bra årgang, og understreker Jaboulet sine kvalitetsproblemer sent 90 tall og tidlig 2000-tall. 87-88
June 23, 2019 - Still drinking fine although it's possible it's on a downward slope. Very minimal tannins but enough structure to hold together the interesting Rhone flavors
June 21, 2019 - DOA
April 13, 2019 - Unbelievable nose. Dark berries, bacon, great acidity. Mushrooms, earth, great core of black fruit. Great now.
April 12, 2019 - Aroma of sour currants and flowers. Tasted red currant, blood iron. Slightly dry. This gets much better after 1 hour of decanting - developed floral and cassis palate with slight tinge of honey. Enjoyable and easy drinking. This should get better with more time.
