    October 7, 2019 - Opened and let air 4 hours ahead of mixed chicken stir fry. Cloudy, ruby-garnet color with a purple hue. Nose brings blackberries, cherry blossoms, candied grape candy, rose petals, and whiffs of wood smoke. The palate is light, lean, tart, and tangy, bringing pomegranate, raspberries, blackberries, cloves, rhubarb, and wild herbs into a hard, slightly hot finish. Still needs time for the tail to settle down, but so far this is elegant and layered. Drink 2022-2028. Technical score: 92. Enjoyment score: 90.

    June 19, 2019 - I love the wines from Jean Foillard but this was simply too plummy and heavy. A monstrosity in this vintage. Drinkable yes and food helps to tone it down. But still
