    December 3, 2016 - No 32, soy and savory on the nose, wet leaves and bay leaves, low leather in the finish. Hermitage, 2006.

    March 21, 2016 - Pas typique de son terroir.
    Il n'y a pas beaucoup d'arôme au nez et c'est assez acide en bouche.
    Déception

  • campingfleurie Likes this wine: 89 points

    May 11, 2013 - On opening, the wine is far from its original blackcurrant evidenced on the cork. It’s mean and structured, with limited, red drought-raspberry the main fruit. Nose is a slightly ditch-watery Brett character. Tannin stings the tongue a little; but is at least some perky acidity, and a hint of Fine Wine extension. Didn’t decant. Three hours later, the nose has taken steps along a path: now the drought raspberry, chalky earth, a little musk and some of the watery Brett. Aroma is delivered classily, though: width and burgeoning soft density. The palate is on the way back to its origins in its brown blackberry to blackcurrant. Still some prickliness, which is reasonably stimulating and satisfying. 88 to 89 pts of pleasure now. A quarter of the bottle the next day was surprisingly saturating in delivery, with quietened fruit, but nice hints of bacon and leather. Natural (as well as oxidative) sweetness, depth, and attractive, sound length. Overall, a wine made for ageing, which needs a lot of air at the moment (would have been at its best with 4-5 hours of double-decanting); and I certainly prefer the combination of acidity and ‘less ripe’ extracted phenolics to the dire, dull and smooth-soft modern Bordeaux I’ve tasted too much of recently. Scope for c92+ in 4+ years.

    April 11, 2013 - Decanted more than one hour. On the nose earthy aromas and dark fruit. Medium to full bodied palate, vibrant acidity and firm tannic grip, delivering rather subtle flavors of damp earth, some dark fruit, peppery notes and a vague meaty aspect as well. The acidic structure is very nice so the wine feels balanced and harmonious. A bit young still but is starting to come around. Great value.
