    January 25, 2019 - Jean Louis Chave Hermitage Tasting (Wine Watch, Fort Lauderdale, Florida): Definitely had a unique quality compared to the other Chave Hermitages. It had a darker fruit profile, with more dark plum and blackberry, along with truffle, eucalyptus, bacon fat, pepper, game, and espresso. Deep, rich, and concentrated on the palate. Very round and balanced. Perhaps more accessible right now than the 1995 Chave Hermitage, which I have found to be a bit shy and less generous. A nice long finish. Medium level of acidity. Very special to taste this rare wine from Chave.

    July 13, 2018 - Full but soft nose and a relatively compact palate. Compares favorably to the regular cuvee in this vintage, but is not a blockbuster. Still early in its evolution, this deserves another evaluation in 5 years as I see upside here. 94-95+

    March 14, 2014 - Dinner at Steve & Barb's house. Greg's generous offering for the evening. A very unique and perfumed nose that I've only encountered once before - in the bottle of the '98 sitting next to it! The lineage of the wines could be seen in the similarities and the differing vintage characteristics could be seen in the fact that the '98 had deeper and richer fruit. It's always difficult to put wines like this into words and better to just enjoy the moment. Both were quite young but absolutely delicious. 50+14+14+9+9=96+

    October 4, 2012 - Dinner with Friends (Storefront Company - Chicago IL): Open approx 6 hours before pouring, this was double decanted before coming to the restaurant, then decanted again at the restaurant. Dense black fruit coming across as incredibly fresh, vibrant and forward. Very primary. Moderate spice to start, with more pepper, licorice and allspice coming through from middle to finish. Powerful, long finish. This should still be getting better for another decade+.

    October 9, 2009 - Quoique du même style que le 1991, il m’a semblé un peu plus sérieux et structuré. Vin d’une incroyable finesse, presque exotique par son bouquet. La bouche est divine, avec des arômes très rhodaniens de viande et d’épices. Les très fins tanins et l’acidité convergent vers une finale presque croquante et très longue. Très grand vin.
