    July 6, 2018 - Dinner at Tim's (Chicago, IL): Served double blind. It's nice to have all our preconceived notions removed by having some renowned wines blind once in a while. It was pretty easy to pick up that this was syrah, but I found a lot of alcohol and almost-blue-fruited elements on the nose that I guessed that this was a new world producer. There was also an intense gamy note that should have pointed me back in the right direction, but I was too focussed on the slight over-the-topness of this wine. The palate felt a bit alcoholic as well, and there didn't seem to be good integration between the elements here. Certainly not as enjoyable as the 2005 Chaillot (also double blind) a few months back.

    June 17, 2018 - outstanding wine - long, complex and unique - no rush and may even improve

    May 25, 2018 - The good stink, rubber and pepper aromatics. Clean palate. Earthy, honest and persistent. Complexity defined.

    March 30, 2017 - This wine is clearly and unfortunatly over the top. Since our last bottle in 2010, the last one has not aged as expected. The complexity in the boquet is gone and replaced with a mute "old" smell with hints of volatile acids. No more of the nice fruit, tobacco and leather. The same must be said about the taste. The fruit is gone and there is nothing to balance the ramining structure (still quite tannic). We tried to bring it back to life with four hours in the decanter without much success. The wine still lingers in the mouth for ages, but this didn't compensate. A huge disapointment for a long expected bottle.
