    October 10, 2019 - Tojours autant de plaisir à boire un Ch des Tours! Avec ce nez à nulle autre pareil, chaleureux, fruité et épicé, d'ou jaillit un pot-pourri de fleurs séchées, de rose fanée, de confiture de groseille, de mure, de poivres rares, de cuir fin, on ne se lasse pas de le humer longuement. Quand on le boit, il décline une rondeur caressante, un corps solide et svelte, avec une pointe d'acidité minérale qui dégourdit les papilles: jamais fatiguant malgré sa discrète puissance, il offre une personnalité bien marquée, de celle qui fondent une légitime notoriété. J'adore!

    October 6, 2019 - Lovely. Ready to go. Sappy, strawberry, dark cherry. Very grenache to my palate. There is an herbal quality. Light in color but with depth and persistence on palate. You keep picking up the glass. Like a L'Anglore Tavel.

    August 20, 2019 - Quite light in color. Red fruit, smoke, and white pepper on the interesting nose. Cherries, pepper, spices, and red fruit on the palate. Good finish. Fantastic Cote du Rhône! 92+

    August 17, 2019 - Wonderfully light, floral, tart, and fruity. This wine still has a strong pink grapefruit component, with strawberry, roses, and cherry underneath. It's fresh and juicy, and straightforward. There's bit of green in there too.

    July 27, 2019 - Light ruby, youthful color; nose is intensely perfumed, wild strawberry, garrigue spice, floral, slight sweetness, some herbal, elegant and complex; palate is light bodied, high alcohol (though bottle says only 13%), low tannin, medium to medium-plus acidity, plenty of elegant red berry fruit, strawberries, slight tartness and bitterness though the midpalate that adds a bit of complexity; finish is medium-long. Though the alcohol is higher on the palate than I might prefer, the nose is truly world class. The wine overall is incredibly well made, complex, full of character, and a step up from the Vaucluse of the same year. In the Rayas style, and completely worth the ~$40. 92+
    Day 2: Largely similar, excellent elegance. There was a small amount of sediment at the bottom of the bottle which was unexpected for a recent release.
