    June 29, 2021 - Smells a bit like cooked blood sausage. In a kinda intriguing way. Savory fruit on the mid palate as well. This is good stuff. Super interesting.

    April 30, 2021 - Love the Burgundian qualities of this bottling. Finessed, lithe, smooth, flavorful (cherry jam, sour cherry), superb acidity. Aromas of lavender and baked berries. This wine delivers for me every vintage.

    November 28, 2020 - This has the most gorgeous core of sweet raspberry fruit. There are all sorts of interesting savoury traits too. It has good depth and an underlying structure of gravelly tannins. There's lots of mineral and balance is exquisite.
