    October 30, 2019 - Tasted over two days - and much, much better on day 2. When opened, this seemed very alcoholic indeed, but in the second day, everything is smoother, sweet Grenache galore, full bodied, rich, still quite young, local, albeit with a modern touch. Will wait a couple of years for the next bottle

    January 19, 2019 - Over the hill. I’m not a huge CDP fan, but this was overwhelmed with prunes and plums, and had an unattractive brownish hue to it. Way too sweet and somewhat thin. Not undrinkable, but did pour 1/3 of the bottle out.

    December 23, 2018 - Decanted 2 hours. Tangy red fruits in waves, some spice; black fruits underneath with some forest floor. A really interesting wine with so much going on it was hard to keep track. Long finish.

    December 9, 2018 - Can tell this is from a very hot year. Not completely unpleasant, but very hot, stewed notes, especially as the wine warms to room temperature. I'd say drink up as this won't get any better.

    November 23, 2018 - Opened two bottles. Very disappointing. Not worth drinking. Has no structure left. May be going through awkward phase, but more likely past it
