    March 11, 2019 - First of 5. Very fresh, but not heavy. I liked this a lot and think this will improve further. Nice red fruits and garrigue.

    March 3, 2019 - Had next to the 2001 Vieux Donjon, which I found much more to my liking. This was, however, better than expected for a 2007 as it has begun losing some of the heavy, overripe jamminess I remember from when I first tasted it. Obviously, very ripe and rich, but not the alcoholic mess I was fearing. Nice flavors of kirsch with some spice. No nearly as complex and refreshing as the 01 Donjon, though. My 2007 Cotes du Rhones have been drinking beautifully for the past couple years, are the CdPs going to emerge from their hot, jammy mess at some point and drink better? I wouldn't have thought so, but this bottle might get me thinking otherwise.

    February 2, 2019 - Enjoyed next to the '05. As expected, this hot-vintage '07 was was more rich and lush with very warm, dark characteristics: macerated, super-ripe berries, licorice, dense, sweet, and powerful. Beautiful tannins. Developing more quickly than the '05. The crowd was split with most prefering the '07 but not me.

    June 8, 2018 - Crushed mulberries, smoked ham, Provencal herbs and beef blood.
    Beautiful and complex wine that superbly blends the traditional, transparant and elegant signature of the domain with the seductive richness of the vintage.
    Not too sweet for my taste, probably due to 30% Mourvedre/Syrah.
    I don't see 99/100 from TWA, but it's frigging delicious nonetheless.
