    September 19, 2020 - Cork popped for 4.5 hours before drinking. Starting to develop some of the tertiary flavours, but still quite primary. Kirsch, cherries, dark berries. Tint of orange coming through but probably still 2-3 years away from starting to hit prime drinking winidow - would recommend holding onto these if you have any bottles. Beautiful now once decanted, before decanting the after taste is a little bit too punchy and in your face, but after a bit of air it's well balanced. Amazing value for money Chateauneuf ; the mouvedre really shines through in the after taste and lasts a while.

    September 18, 2020 - Garnet color with hints of orange on the rim showing the age. On the nose, dried but ripe and brambly blackberry, raspberry and almost a savory quality to it with thyme and rosemary spices coming through. On the palate, you get the ripe fruits with an overall lifted spiced wine with a minerality backbone with a long expressive finish. I could taste the wine almost 4 mins later. High complexity and high quality wine that is very expressive and full of fruit and garrigue. Medium acidity, medium body, medium and silky tannins and medium alcohol. Decanted for 3 hours and what a treat!

    September 9, 2020 - Exceptional. My score arguably may be higher than most, but I was just that impressed. This 2006 is just beginning to enter its best drinking window and, along with about an hour of open bottle, this gorgeous wine had the aromas of leather, black cherries, kirsch, pepper, dirt, moss and other forest scents. Dark stone and stewed fruits, stewed berries and garrique with other flavors along with the perfect acidity. Juicy, elegant and complex provided by the cleaver use of all allowable grape varietals. Perfect length on the tongue. Superb.

    August 20, 2020 - Outstanding wine, still drinks very young - lots of life left. Tannins are still strong. Full bodied, very concentrated.
