    November 24, 2019 - Deep red rather than purple . Light on its feet - not “serieux” - gushingly lovely stuff .

    April 7, 2019 - 2016 has been a challenging year for Hermitage, as hail in April caused a severe reduction in volume. The quality of the final product, however, benefitted from perfect temperatures in Autumn. Silene is a selection from Jean Louis Chave, who cultivated this land since XV century. The granite soil of Crozes is fully reflected in the wine, showing raspberry notes on a mineral vein. Time will allow to grow up some more interesting tertiary flavors, for now limited to tobacco and a hint of licorice. The taste, however, is already balanced, with soft and ready tannins balancing a strong minerality core. I'd suggest to leave it there for 2-3 years at least, to check whether the potential it showed on the nose can fully develop

    April 19, 2018 - picked up few bottles of this after tasting - bacon and forest floor play well with the blackberry flavors - will need a year or two to calm down
