    March 29, 2020 - This bottle is performing a lot better than the last one I tried. The color is orange at the rim and it has a good fruity nose to it. On the palate, the fruit forward nature of this vintage shows through with lots of sweet juicy berry fruit, earthiness, garrique and a little spice.

  • La Grappe wrote: flawed

    March 13, 2020 - A small tasting sample. After finding the first bottle quite unpleasant, with a distinct barnyardy flavour, I hoped that my second (and thankfully last) bottle might be different. It took only a small sip to see that it was as bad as the first. I marked the first bottle as ‘flawed’, hoping it was a one-off. It was not. I have therefore consulted the Wine Rating Assistant and marked this as 69 (‘Avoid’).

    Post Script: Following a comment to the effect that the wine may have been heat damaged, I have now removed the rating and marked this bottle also as 'flawed'.

    March 11, 2020 - Not corked or Brett. Just gross. First wine dumped in a long time. And, I’ve liked many 07 Rhône’s.

  • La Grappe wrote: flawed

    February 9, 2020 - Fully mature, with a distinctive barnyardy flavour which may be from a heavy dose of brettanomyces. Initially it just tasted unusual, but in due course it became unpleasant. If I had to mark it, I would struggle to give it 79. I will give it the benefit of the doubt and put it down as flawed, hoping that my other bottle is not similarly affected.

    February 2, 2020 - Nez un peu bizarre a l'ouverture mais bien apres un peu d'aeration. En bouche, c'est bien, équilibré, une belle longueur et pas trop évolué. Bien.
    15/20
