    May 15, 2019 - Oh happy day. Thought we'd drunk all these by 2017 as they were maturing quickly (I thought), but found one last night in the cellar while trying to unearth an '11 from the bottom of the pile. Initially light with plums, acid and white pepper, it gained weight over the course of several hours in the form of extra fruit, garrique and a nutmeg kind of spice on the finish. Totally delightful.

    May 13, 2019 - Tasted over 2 hrs
    -dark red purple
    -fragrant lovely garrigue plum iodine screams out southern Rhône
    -med acidity is just enough, med weight lively spiced plum garrigue earth with only trace heat and med tannins on long finish
    -this is in a sweet spot now and should remain there for several more years

    April 18, 2019 - Quite an outstanding nose (A-). Palate is a little be strange but still excellent.

    March 21, 2019 - Opened alongside a 2001 Beaucastel. Fresh and lively with vibrant dark cherry fruit and a hint of the barnyard to it. I'd say that it's drinking quite well now, though there are some tannins on the back end.

    March 1, 2019 - Touch of brett, but in a good way adding complexity. Drinking pretty well at this stage.
