    August 2, 2019 - Southern Rhône trip with Rainer. Tasted at the Domaine. Mostly Grenache, with small dashes of Clairette and Cinsault. 15% ABV. €36,50. Beautiful dark ruby colour. Ripe mixed berries, spices and a mineral touch, with just enough acidity, ripe, fine tannin and good length. Good concentration. A step up from the regular cuvée.

    March 27, 2019 - Much too young to be drinking this, but there’s simply so much potential here/with the vintage I wanted to try one of my case. Day one it was intense and spicy, a bit hard work but clearly well put together. Day two it settled and was simply a delight. Cherry, herbs and just a real deacadence that’s quite lovely. Will return in 5 years with very high expectations. Could be 95+.

    December 8, 2018 - Deep ruby. Heady ripe raspberry and licorice. Textured feel, round, incipient complexity but finishes hot.

    November 18, 2018 - Second Sunday Group: 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Our house): Single blind. Lovely perfume, spice, herbs and red fruit. Very fruit-driven on the palate with a subtle herbal element. Clean and bright. I like this a good bit. 93+ pts.

    My #4, Domino's #4
    Group #4, 50 pts
