    February 7, 2020 - Mon appréciation du vin est supérieur à la dernière fois(note de 2018). Le vin a encore une belle structure. La bouche est sur le chocolat noir et la cerise. Il offre une belle complexité avec différentes couches autant sur le nez qu’au palais. Excellent rapport qualité prix.

    September 8, 2018 - Les tannins sont entièrement intégrés. Il est probablement sur son déclin mais demeure Tres agréable à boire avec un mélange de fruits noirs et rouges autant sur le nez qu'en bouche.

    August 20, 2017 - Rich, powerful syrah with dark fruit, olives, and meaty. A little too ripe and extracted to me, but still an interesting wine and enjoyable. Needs a long decant for better balance.

    May 19, 2013 - Perhaps this was an off bottle, but it was showing nothing but tart acidity. No real fruit or body. Didn't seem corked or heat damaged, but perhaps something like volatile acidity.

    January 12, 2011 - Monthly Tasting Group HWS #054; Rhône red. (By AH): Popped and poured the bouquet is elegant, but somewhat locked. There are some red fruits. On the palate good juice. Good cherries, a little pleasant sweetness and good acidity. Medium to full bodied. Early maturity now. Probably at its peak two years from now and then for several years more. Very good wine.
