    October 27, 2018 - 2015 Northern Rhones Blind: Single blind. Terrific purity and lift in the aromas with lots of polished black fruit, florals and black pepper. Quite fruit forward and plush on the palate. Some chewiness but overall soft in nature and not really showing a depth of structure. Good, but does this have the legs to last? Surprised to see this as the Chave Florentin on reveal.

    Night 2 update: Showing quite ripe and even hot. All fruit and no structure. Has not held up well overnight.

    October 27, 2018 - Most of the 2015 Northern Rhones worth a damn, blind (Chicago, IL): Served single blind. I think I liked this a little more than others did tonight. This was black-fruited, juicy, and very forward on the palate. Pleasant, with a softer touch, and I thought this was probably one of the lesser producers, given its attenuated complexity and straightforward disposition. Not particularly profound, and with air, some of the oak starts to rear its head.

    May 4, 2018 - La Fête de La Paulée in Chicago (Formento's - Chicago IL): Ripe black berry aromas with some trace of liqueur, floral hints and sweet spice. Came across as very rich and concentrated when first poured, perhaps slightly jammy. Much better and more harmonious the following night. Cellar to 2025 or much later.
