    April 24, 2022 - Decanted through a coffee filter for 45 minutes with moderate to heavy sediment removed. Musty nose followed by strong cherry notes. Good acidity. This reminds me of a red burgundy and it paired quite well with salmon. Definitely a lighter style with less garrigue than, say, the 2007.

    April 23, 2022 - blind, Magnum
    I guessed older, could be fresher and less alcohol dominated. Nice spicy finish. 92

    April 16, 2022 - A hint of maderization in the nose gives way to rich, plummy fruit and a suave mouthfeel. Showing differently from Beaucastels of the previous decade, but still a wine of classic proportions. Quite delicious with an Easter leg of lamb

    March 11, 2022 - Showed well. Dark fruited, spicy, with iron blood notes ans a bit of menthol mixed in. Tannins are rather mild at this point. A little sandalwood on the finish mixed with blacks and a little pepper. Solid. Still has some upside I think (but this was my last one)
