    May 4, 2022 - Meals in France; 4/30/2022-5/6/2022 (France): Asian five spice is the star here, with plenty of mostly mature black plum and cherry, plus lots of earth and faint mushroom. Tannins arexstill a bit too pronounced for the level / maturity of fruit, but she’s k into the background when enjoyed with a meat course.

    February 7, 2022 - Will T’s St Joseph @ Hawksmoor (Hawksmoor, Guildhall): A little flat. Lacks the brightness of the 08. A bit dull and lifeless. Some interest on the nose but it’s not there on the palate. Bare ***

    October 30, 2021 - One bottle in the cellar, and I decided tonight was the night. Honestly I was underwhelmed. Initially still rather grapey, it got more interesting at about the ninety minute mark, but never displayed a depth of flavor to account for the inflated reputation (and price). It certainly had the expected roasted, rare meat and tapenade notes, but never an extra gear. Maybe the expectations were ahead of the wine, but I wouldn’t ever spend more than $40 for a bottle like this.

    July 16, 2021 - Lacked the bacon fat of last bottle, but was luscious with air time. Clearly needed 1+ hour in decanter to fill out. Good structure.

    January 15, 2021 - Five years since I last opened this wine. I believe this was my last bottle, bought on release. It was good, not as awesome as I had hoped. Good aromatics on uncorking, with dried herbs. Palate is resolved, no real delineation of specific fruit, which is to be expected after thirteen years, but it's murky, compote-like, blue-black-brown hued, secondary with brothy notes, savory. Lacks the prettiness and high notes of Cote Rotie, and the layers and depth of Hermitage. Looking over my past tasting notes, it was more compelling in the past. I should have opened it sooner or, frankly, sold it.
