    October 4, 2019 - Bottle, just decanted: Similar notes to previous tasting except that less pruney. Will need some time to breathe as palate is lacking. Note to self: Previous bottle may have been overexposed to heat given the time of year.

    June 23, 2019 - Coravin - Medium ruby. Usual perfumed nose. Well integrated tannins with the sweet black fruit and good acidity to balance. Lighter, less rich and less heat vs. the FdM Etienne Gonnet 2007. Medium length.
    Bottle, decanted - Perfumed garrigue nose, sweet black fruit, soy sauce notes. Soft, sweet black fruit, pruney, some light meaty notes. 89-91.

    May 23, 2019 - Dégustation horizontale Châteauneuf du Pape 2007 (Restaurant l'État Major): Nez charmeur avec du fruit rouge. Belle bouche généreuse et très épicée, avec jolie finale qui a de la finesse. Très bel équilibre, bien que riche, il est savoureux, anisé. Excellent. 93 pts

    May 4, 2019 - Perfectly integrated and at a point where it is better to drink now than hold! Salut!

    December 29, 2018 - Did not decant and should have. Lacked the depth and richness expected of a 2007 select cuvée. No flaws, just not great.
