    February 10, 2019 - Juicy, fresh, ripe, peppery, herb tinged fruit comes with a blast of ripe, rustic, olive tinted, red berries on the palate. The wine is fresh, with a peppery bite, while also showing purity of fruit and freshness in the mouth. Still, this is not a user friendly wine at this stage, you will need to give it several years of rest before you pull a cork.

    October 28, 2018 - Very young and tannic. Deep purple. After 2 hours in decanter still tannic but drinkable with meat. Structured with a lot of potential but impenetrable.

    October 27, 2018 - 2015 Northern Rhones Blind: Single blind. Randomly placed in the line-up right after the Jamet. Clearly cousins with the Jamet and distinguished in the heavy dose of meat, bacon and sausage notes that you get here. Gorgeous meaty, musky black fruit nose. Palate is smooth and approachable, but still sturdy and structured. This is terrific and another good QPR in the Northern Rhone.

    October 27, 2018 - Most of the 2015 Northern Rhones worth a damn, blind (Chicago, IL): Served single blind. You know, I've never been the biggest fan of Levet because I don't tend to enjoy too many gamy notes in my wines (not a fan of lamb, goat, or other gamy meats), and throughout the entire evening, I was looking for that one wooly wine that should have stuck out in that way. This never did. It's a coiled powerhouse of a wine, with tons of burly tannins and a really rustic quality, with incredibly delicious black fruit. Given that sort of character, I thought that this was the Clape.

    June 6, 2018 - (at Le Coucou - NYC) Backwards, tannic and rustic (without being overly so). There is lovely blackberry fruit at the heart of this wine. There is a smokey element as well. Great potential. Classic, real wine. I’m a fan. (92+)
