    December 19, 2021 - Paired well with tri-tip steak, as well as on its own. Soft, almost silky.

    December 5, 2021 - Speechless.
    Encore beaucoup de structure à assouplir, mais magnifique bu sur plusieurs heures, évoluant continuellement. Superbe longueur. Plus austère que LE Pavillon dégusté en même temps. Très minéral. Très structuré. Beaucoup de temps devant...
    95-97+?

    October 2, 2021 - Deep dark colour, red/black rim.
    Ink, cassis, plum, licorice, soy.
    Super silky, absolute refinement, all across the palate to a long refined finish. Tannins and acidity superbly balanced. Dark berries, blueberry, licorice, graphite, ink and earth. Not overly developed, just nicely expressive, delicious bright fruit and lingering spice.

    May 12, 2021 - Someone wrote "southern Rhone" as a descrition for this whine, and I find that very fitting. To me this is just too much.
    Slighly jammy, with heat, and still with quite a lot of oak. Let this rest 5-10 years and hope for the best.
    Really liked the 2012, but this was a major dissapointment.

    October 6, 2020 - Wine Night Commanderie @ GWC!: Cassis, currants, raspberries, slight meat funk, spices. This is drinking well now. Guessed this to be a Rhone and likely a Hermitage as I didn't pick up any cola notes. Enjoyed this tonight. Just entering into its drinking window IMO.
