    May 4, 2018 - Dark red with clear edges, also a fair amount of sediment. Medium intense funky Rhone nose. Still some nice red fruit and pepper. Delicious earthy berry flavours and a nice balanced finish.

    This surprised me. Younger bottles showed very little. I obviously needed to give these more time. This was from my friend Bill's cellar. On this night much better then the 05 Lopy.

    November 15, 2014 - The Brett really dominates this wine. Everything else is okay but really we winemakers need to get past letting Brett get this overwhelming, we know better how to control this these days. It has really lost most of its charm into a rustic funk. Far better several years ago.

    June 3, 2014 - Almost my favourite AOC in Rhone, this one is a bit more delicately bodied now, with an almost perfumed overlay to the gutsy vinification. I have a couple more of these left from a happy bin-end experience! Drank well with a serious egg, bacon and mushroom pasta sauce (english breakfast meets carbonara) and you could imagine an Italian wine might aspire to end up like this
