    April 21, 2020 - Coravin first glass. Very mature almost jammy which isn’t my favourite. No tannins left at all and fruit is dried plums and overripe.

    February 25, 2019 - Opened 3 hours before. Beautiful mature red color with no brown showing. Very mature nose with prunes and medicin cabinet dominating. Its tannins are almost gone and with only little acidity present I fear for my opinion. But with food it lives again. Good mature wine with prunes, leather, earth, metal and wood. Warm and with little "bite" I found it good to drink it at 17-18 Celsius.

    February 11, 2017 - A revelation. The last of 6, by far the best. The tannins have at last died down, leaving a full-bodied but soft and enveloping blend of jammified garrigue strawberries with herbs, nutmeg and cassis. Incredible persistence, perfect poise and balance. I've tasted several of the more trendy Bandols from 98, but this is much better. Just wish I had more. Best bottle of the year which puts to shame any Bordeaux 98 tasted.

    July 4, 2015 - robe évoluée - nez sur les fruits cuits et le cuir - Attaque fraiche - Bouche moyennement puissante soutenue par une belle fraicheur, tannins fondus, bel équilibre, fruits rouges et noirs murs voir confiturés, traces de réglisse, longueur correcte. Manque de complexité pour etre mieux noté. Toujours très bon 24h après ouverture sans y gagner.

    November 16, 2013 - Medium red, showing bit of age. Nice soft berry mourvedre nose, quite aromatic - menthol? Some leather, ripe, some tannins on finish but now mellowed out and ready. Good if a touch rustic round the edges.
