    August 16, 2021 - Drank with a crew that had some familiarity with Bourdy's wines. This has held up well. Softer, loamy purple fruit. Delicate mouthfeel. Been told these can hold up to substantial aging, but I found this to be in a good drinking zone. I owned the bottle approx. 10 years and was happy that the wine rewarded the cellar patience. Food oriented, we had with grilled lamb "lollipops" over charcoal and that sure was a good match.

    April 29, 2021 - Vintner Nick Goldschmidt once told me that brettanomyces has a tendency to decrease in wine over time and that’s clearly the case here. That nasty horse sweat once filthy in this wine is diminished yet still there and not great. There is also a very high level of sourness in the wine, must have a really low pH. It is drinkable at this stage, although not something I would choose and probably makes the wine worth less that the $20 I paid. I guess another 5 years could make it more approachable although I’m not sure the storage cost is justified. Light crimson with taupe edges, more like gamay in color. Brett, smoke and sous bois in the nose with an unripe berry, horse sweat and pepper. The Brett really shows up on the finish. Bleh.

    October 17, 2020 - Wow, what a surprise this was. Decanted for about 30 minutes and enjoyed with roasted pork loin. Fading to light red in color. There was a lot of pepper on the nose and on the palate. While there was a predominant taste of black pepper this was pleasantly balanced with a bit of strawberry and red licorice on the back palate. Very complex and interesting. Bought for less than $20 from Garagiste nine years ago and it is seeming like a major bargain now.

    September 16, 2020 - Open in bottle for an hour...rust crancherry, slight orange rim color...gorgeous nose of leather, black pepper, sous bois, cigar ash, dried cherry/orange. Been 6yrs since the last test drive on this, and it looks to be aging at a glacial pace! Still quite rustic and structured..an ala Barolo intense acidity and tannin dryness, yet a delicate transparency of rose florals and dried fruits. Then you get to the Rhone with earth, meat, leather, and that black pepper...although more nuanced than previous bottles...very prevalent cigar ash giving it some dirtiness...yea you can sip this in the Rhone vigneron's garage...yet also some elegance that the Burgundy vig won't kick you out the Domaine's gates. Always thought of this wine as the love child of Cornas and Burgundy...but I think Barolo has now made it a threesome! Oh, by the way, I love this wine!

    March 10, 2020 - Hard one to call. First cork really well put together and kept the wine fresh. Magenta stained. Have very little Jura knowledge or experience, but wasn't sure what to expect. Seems a cross between pinot noir and perhaps a spanish wine, not granite, but something else. Bright with acidity, some tennis, not faded, fruity but in a hard way to put my finger on. Many reviewers have cited carry component and that seems as close that I can agree with. Light colored, not dense in mouth or in glass. Feel would be excellent with greasy food, such as steak or lamb, but had instead with fish. My research indicates these wines age for many years, which surprised me, because I didn't think there was much here to begin with to evolve, but again not familiar with Jura. One the fence with this one, but wasn't horrid either, and I did end up drinking it all.
