    December 11, 2021 - Q4 2021 Wine Club: The Return with Aged Rhone (Our apt): Wine #5: Clear winner of the evening for the group. It is drinking really well. Some good red fruits. Younger in style to me. It was decanted and the decanter went quickly (I think first wine to be finished). The only year with Hommage where it’s Grenache dominated. Just a hint of funkiness to it. (17 pennies)

    June 7, 2021 - All the world's great wines share one commonality, it takes no time to recognize it's a rockstar. One sniff and sip of this stunner, and I knew this was an insane bottle. With its incredible depth of flavor, concentration, and complexity, the spicy, mouthcoating fruit, with its meaty personality made you take a second sip and sniff. Rich, palate-staining and yet light on its feet, the wine holds on your palate for over 60 seconds as it builds in intensity. With 60 minutes of air, the bottle kept getting better for the next few hours. It might have gone on longer, but we finished the bottle by that point. This is better than the 1989 or 1990, and it sells for a lot less money.

    October 4, 2020 - Deep burgundy red, dark core, light brick rim.
    Rich, ripe, dark berries, iron filings and tar, fragrant and balanced.
    Silky smooth, balanced and very long, goes forever. Plump dark fruits, licorice, tar, plums, ink, garrigue, hints of iron, so rounded, super fine tannins. Perfectly integrated dark berries, tar spice and dried herbs. Spectacular.

    March 20, 2020 - I have very mixed feeling about this wine. In the best moments it shined bright with its incredibly delicate structure and fresh, pure fruit and a high complexity (96-97 points) but then there were other phases where the wine showed the side of Chateauneuf-du-Pape I don‘t like at all with port-like ripeness and a bit too much of everything (92). I get the feeling that with more air or better 10 more years in the cellar, the wine will further come together. All the stuffing and the structure will certainly allow for further ageing.

    TN: As described above, this wine had two side with porty fruit, high ripeness overpowering the many nuances underneath on the one hand, and the ripe but fresh red and dark red fruit, soft, delicate, intense and pure with cola, herbs, leather, meaty notes and spices. The structure is close to perfection with ultra-fine tannins and a good freshness.

    Decanting: Not decanted, I would give it at least 4-5 hours. Better just wait a few years.
