    July 8, 2019 - What a pleasant surprise. This wine was mis-catalogued in my cellar as the red wine of the same name; so when I took it out and discovered the white wine, I was disappointed.
    On opening it the next night i was absolutely blown away - one of the best Rhone whites I've ever had. Actually tried to find more on wine-searcher, without success
    Buckeye76 right on!

    March 27, 2018 - Drinking very well now. Surprisingly complex wine with lots of fruit, apples, citrus, melons, and tropical fruits accompanied by minerals, floral notes, and some nuttiness. This is a well balanced wine, full bodied with nice acidity and a long finish. Don't open very many Rhone whites, but this was very impressive and a greater starter wine to the Scarecrow that was to follow!

    September 27, 2017 - Still quite enjoyable. Pear, honeycomb, tropical fruits. Oily texture. Nice viscosity. A little too flabby to really stand out. Some pleasant secondary oxidative notes developing. Should continue to drink well but no reason to wait.

    July 2, 2015 - This bottle was much more oxidized than my first, I think the oxidation dominated. It has good acidity and spice on the long finish. Nose is muted. There is little fruit on the palate, mineral, spice, and acid dominates.

    December 3, 2014 - Guy's St Joseph Offline (RSJ, Coin Street, London): Medium/deep straw, dull yellow. Nose is dominated by oxidative notes, some stone fruit coming through. Palate is also oxidative and lifeless, if of good length. Don't really see the point of this though I suppose it may just be in an "intermediate phase". *
