    January 17, 2019 - Another PnP of this wine, coming on the heels of the Balthazar CdR - this is much tamer and more elegant on the palate. Still obviously Northern Rhone Syrah - but more mature and restrained. These wines are ready to go and should probably be consumed with the next 3-5 years as the fruit and tannins are fading.

    December 30, 2018 - 12 Days of Christmas - 2018; 12/21/2018-1/1/2019 (NYC, Vermont, Lake Placid): PnP - an interesting wine probably fully mature at this point. I think this may have been one of Texier’s first few Côte-Rotie vintages and I suspect he was still working things out. It feels perhaps a bit lighter than I would expect. The fruit is pretty mature (blackberry) and there is some pepper and dried leaves and earth - not much of the savory olive or bacon or iron tastes though. Fine for quaffing but I don’t think will develop much further.

    April 15, 2016 - Even better than a bottler a couple of years ago. I know I’m not exactly seen as objective when it comes to Eric’s wines, but it’s because of wines like this, that just drill into some part of my brain. So pretty aromatically and so etched on the palate. I’ll use Coad’s word “gossamer” because that’s what it is to me. Hopefully, the younger vintages form other sources age as gracefully as this has. I may have liked this more than other folks.

    December 10, 2015 - Better than the tight/ungiving bottle opened a year ago, but still lacked fruit and my guess is that even though the trend line is going in the right direction, the show's pretty much over.
