    January 1, 2017 - huge, vibrant nose savory and fruity. No cork taint here, thankfully, unlike my last 2 years ago. Very syrah. Palate not as intense. Excellent, though palate intensity not same as nose. Meaty. Other notes ring true. Solid 90-92..

    January 1, 2015 - Slightly corked. Bummer. Still deep ruby. Good, fresh fruit underneath cork nose. Still some tannin. Not bad on palate, though can't get full sense.

    October 31, 2013 - Another very fine bottle of this. Still youthfully tannic but with air it opened up nicely. The nose was just lovely, evolving from peat- and truffle-inflected ripe fruit to more smoky and mineral/earth aromas. The palate never quite caught up to the nose, but I still grooved on it.

    July 17, 2013 - Not as focused and pure as the last bottle but still very enjoyable. Old cedar notes on the nose with blackberry and ink notes. Some herbs as well. The fruit is ripe but not jammy at all as there's actually a nice sensation of freshness and austerity.
    It really got better after 2 days when it had time to breath (unlike the previous bottle which showed well right away).

    February 1, 2013 - What a great wine. Corked was soaked pretty much all the way up but the level was very good. Started with old cedary notes with a touch of greeness which blew off after 15mn to reveal nice fruit, ripe raspberry intermixed with some blue fruit. There's very cool savory and meaty notes (also on the palate). The nose is somehow more elegant than the palate which shows more power. But the finish is very focused, maybe a touch austere (and this is not a bad thing at all), compared to the palate, with a nice tobacco note.
    Very difficult to believe the wine is 22 years old both color and taste wise. This was another example from Marlene Soria that you can make beautiful, balanced syrah in the Languedoc while keeping a sense of place.
    Interesting also that I sometimes feels like there's some wood (never annoying, maybe more a textural feeling) when only cement vats are used...
