    July 10, 2021 - Very closed off and never really opened up. I think it may have been flawed

    July 4, 2021 - 1.5L. Andouzed (uncorked but not decanted) for 24 hours. Very pleasant red and black fruit, toast, tobacco and good balancing acidity. At this point too much acidity to be mistaken for California as this vintage has been accused of, but lacks the green olive and tar typical of a C-H syrah.

    June 21, 2021 - Fine showing tonight. Surerely this is somewhat polished, not the wine, that this once was, but is a better than solid crozes and the local character shines thjought with herbsm pepper,black fruit, olives. Still young certainly.

    May 25, 2021 - Had this after Alain Voge 2012 VV and this was way more powerful and bold (and stylistically I clearly preferred the Voge). Pepper, olives, meat, kirsch and bread yeast on the nose. Good strong acidity, but the palate is not really giving. Tannic structure is for me ok to enjoy it right now. The wines finish is medium. Nevertheless, for my taste this is distinctly young and needing a decant or more time in the cellar. I had a coravin sample so not the time to sit and enjoy. I see this evolving nicely, but this doesn't seem to rock me as it seems to rock others. I will hold on to my bottles for 5 years before opening the rest.

    April 20, 2021 - At its peak, very nice, solid wine and goes great with food. Drink up, don't think it'll improve further.
