    January 15, 2022 - some seepage on an otherwise waxy-firm cork. translucent reddish, floral, "feminine" bright red fruit with totally resolved tannins. At peak

    April 18, 2021 - Enveloping nose of black cherry, plum jam, tobacco and baked dry earth. Lovely rich and slightly dusty palate of black and red fruit. Long finish of dried herbs, balsamico and caramelised sugar. This is a beautifully made, classic Southern Rhone at its absolute peak and is beautiful, not least for its spectacular value.

    May 24, 2020 - Clear in the glass - no sign of ageing. Intense, rather hot nose of black cherry, cigar box and alcohol. Still fresh and youthful on the rich palate of cassis, stewed plums and liquorice. Lingering tarry molasses finish. This lacks the complexity of Beaucastel's CdP but is a superb example of a top-quality aged (and drinking perfectly) CdR which was a steal. Time to order more!

    April 20, 2020 - Popped this a second wine due to concerns it was past its prime. It's not. Very scant old world nose. Smooth complex wine with light red and rich purple fruit. Lingering finish. Well exceeded expectations.
