    September 6, 2019 - Very Young wine, on the nose a nice mix of dark and red berries, hints of fresh herbs, but not quite integrated yet. OIn the palate sweet and rich fruit, more of dark than red fruits, and some very hard tannin. Already nice but I would wait a few more years before I open another one.

    August 14, 2019 - PNP big fruit, good acid, surprisingly moderate tannin. Drink or hold.

    July 7, 2019 - Much better with food than without. On its own, the green olive flavor was prevalent.

    July 7, 2019 - Fantastic young chateauneuf du Pape. Loads of cherries and concentrated fruit. But absolutely no jam! Soft ripe tannins and well balanced acidity. This has many years ahead but is drinking very well already.
