    August 22, 2020 - Popped and poured into decanter. Good to go from the start. Love that Mourvèdre nose. Evolved a bit over a few hours until gone. Too bad last bottle.

    May 9, 2020 - Medium garnet. What a nose. Red berries, leather, pepper and animal notes. Complex and well balanced wine. Peaking right now. Fantastic

    March 28, 2020 - Hmmm...had high hopes for this one, as it has got multiple appraisals in the past. The Verdict: A very Nice wine that simply are unable to hide the alcohol which shadows many of the wondeful notes this Wine carries. Tonight, I was dissapointed...it taste like the 05 and was completely overshadowed by the 00 which shows what Caillou is capable of. It Will not get better...It’s just one of those vintages where the grapes got top ripe. Decanted 2h 20 min and cooled to 16 degrees Celcius before serving.
