    June 10, 2019 - Not much fruits left, past its prime

    July 23, 2017 - A Northern Rhone Dinner with Doug; 7/22/2017-7/23/2017 (Chez Senna): Red fruit and white pepper nose. Red fruits and a healthy does of white pepper on the nose with some licorice on the finish. Tannins are still a bit prickly. There's plenty of life left and it should be drinking well on it's 25th birthday.

    I liked this quite a bit; the other tasters at the table were a bit more indifferent.

    October 6, 2011 - Mike on Tour (Bibou - Philadelphia PA): muted black fruit, leather, and olive. finish is a bit watery and a touch sour.

    October 6, 2011 - Mike On Tour - Philadelphia (Bibou (1009 S 8th St., Philadelphia, PA 19147)): The best bottle of this I've had thus far. Still, it is what it is. A bit underripe and burly. Beyond the green note, there is a leathery earthy note on the palate with just the subtlest bit of perfumed red fruit. While I doubt this will ever evolve into something more than what it is now, it is a nice drinking wine in an off vintage.

    August 29, 2011 - Fascinating wine. On night 1, it started out thin and rough with a chalky, almost CA Syrah-esque texture that I didn't particularly care for. Over the next couple of days in the cellar, this opened up tremendously, and the fruit filled out, the texture got to be more silky and the fruit became perfumed and almost exotic. Lots of earth and olive tapenade/fig paste. Finishes strong. To think that this wine was made in the wash-out vintage of 2002 gives me pause on two counts. If this wine is as good a it is in 2002, how good a winemaker does Michel Chapoutier have to be, and I cannot help but wonder how good this wine must be in top vintages like 1999. I can highly recommend this wine.
