Community Tasting Notes 7

    September 26, 2021 - Way too young, but oozing with flowers and raspberry coulis on the nose. Intensely fragrant and flavored, pure and lively fruit combined with pepper and garrigue. This will be a great wine in 10 years. Bought chez Laurent.

    July 21, 2021 - Wonderfully fresh, young, hedonistic with layers of brambly / garrigue / herbs de Provence and inky fruit. Some oak for sure, but in a sleek seductive way. Yum.

    July 20, 2021 - 100% whole cluster; 85% Grenache, 5% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre, 5% Vaccarèse.
    My first encounter with this producer. Upon opening it, my initial thought was: "this tastes like a Bedrock/Morgan Twain-Peterson wine!" A couple minutes of air, and the 60+ YO Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Vaccarèse vines began revealing their character, particularly on the nose—savory, herbaceous, and a little green. On the palate, fresh barrel oak also began emerging. 10 minutes in the profile shifted from bright fruit to dark cherries in a style more reminiscent of Northern Rhone. 20 minutes in, and the whole-cluster treatment moves to the front. 30 minutes in it became clear that the wine is too young and still trying to find itself.
    On the next day, the oak treatment seemed to be coming to the forefront.
    A wonderful bottling overall, or, to quote Jancis Robinson, a "grown-up wine," truly.
    14.5% ABV.

    February 16, 2021 - Very, very young. Light fruit, some herbs here, tannins as weel, but it's juicy stuff, very fresh, elegant, mineral, like being sur place on a mild autumn-day - how we miss travelling.

    February 13, 2021 - Perfumed, floral nose, oozing with light cherry and raspberry fruit. Lively, cool, airy fruit and spices, like white pepper. Provençal herbs. Delicious, already, no hard edges, the kirsch and raspberry notes are aces here. Fantastic effort in what is supposed to be (another) warm vintage. Reminds me of the 2004 and 2006 vintages.
