    September 15, 2020 - Delicious right now and not sure how they'll be later. Classic Chateauneuf flavors, black current, leather, dusty tannins, clove and tobacco. Excellent wine...still drinking some the next day and holding up well.

    April 13, 2020 - time waits for no man and it won't wait for me....

    The cellar keeps depleting as the lock down wears on.

    Medium ruby in appearance- has lost a bit of color since the last bottle consumed about a year ago.

    Gorgeous and evolved nose of kirsch liqueur, candied red fruit , melted tar and some sweet spice. Very elegant and precise and not immediately obvious that this is a CDP.

    Medium bodied with lots of similar favor characteristics on the palate. Still some tannin and medium or so in acidity- a touch more acidity than I am finding with other 07's. The finish is long and convincing.

    I have always found this cuvee to be the "Burgundy of the Southern Rhone" and this bottle was no different. I would drink up but this likely can hold another 5 years in a cold cellar (this bottle was from a case purchased on release) .

    August 13, 2019 - Beautiful medium ruby appearance.

    Pronounced, elegant and evolved nose of candied red fruit- almost bright cherry- spice, herbs and even balsamic notes.

    Medium bodied with plenty of acidity and freshness. This is an elegant 2007 , which contrasts with many of the best (and more extracted) examples from this vintage.
    The palate has similar flavor characteristics and the finish is medium plus to long.

    Very well done and shows that different styles can be great in a given vintage and appellation.

    Drink now or hold another decade in a cold cellar.

    May 25, 2019 - This bottle was more pruney and less fresh than the previous one. Still good, but nowhere near as exhilarating.

    May 22, 2019 - Was great from hour 1-3 and then faded
    But overall drinking beautifully
