    October 1, 2021 - Red fruits. Animatic. Great for the autumn with mushrooms.

    September 18, 2021 - Opened and decanted for a little over an hour. Dark red fruit on the nose. The palate was dark cherry, a little cranberry, a touch of mocha and some spices. Finish was moderate to long.

    July 8, 2021 - Black fruit, forest floor aromas. Wisps of Vosne Romanee structure and framework. Good enough to invoke that sense without being a challenger.
    Medium weight, ripe, well made but ultimately disappointing. Does not live up to the nose.

    May 31, 2021 - Tasty. Dark cherries and berries, chocolate, herbs, flowers, anise. Hint of red fruit. Deeply flavoured and dense but still with fresh acidity. Good length. Good result for the vintage!

    (Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape) Very dark garnet color; very lifted, pepper, graphite, garrigue nose; tasty, pepper, tar, tart black fruit, charcoal, licorice palate; more peppery than usual, suggesting more Syrah and Mourvedre in the mix with this vintage; needs 3-4 years; medium-plus finish
