    June 7, 2019 - Nearly 4 years after my last bottle, but does not taste like it. More or less a P&P. Youthful as can be. Super good, with all the normal Pegau funkiness and blend of traditional and modern aromas and flavors. Just ten years too young. Very good to drink now, but will really be phenomenal in 5-10 years...just be patient, resist the temptation, do not open! So much barnyard, garrigue and smoked meats, of course with fresh red fruit (strawberry). But again, super young, not fully integrated. Such stuffing. Cannot wait, but will.

    June 6, 2019 - Another weird bottle that had some fizz to it for the first half hour after opening. I don't know what it is about this wine, it feels like something I would normally like but it comes over as over extracted and a bit heavy handed at times. I have a few bottles left and I wonder if 5 more years in the cellar will do this zippy wine some good.

    May 11, 2019 - Much better this time around, no fizz and an enormous body full of red and dark fruits, garrigue, but with enough minerality to keep this interesting and not a fruit bomb. Excellent pairing with BBQ, this wine will age well for decades.

    May 1, 2019 - Fruit forward at this point in time, tons of raspberries, blackberries, and some bramble at first taste. This settled a bit in the decanter after a while, but there was a hint of fizz on the palate that threw us off a bit because the stuffing was all there on the wine.

    April 18, 2019 - Chablis and Champagne Weekend; 4/17/2019-4/21/2019 (Au bon Manger, Ingo's castle, Rocaille, Le Pot d'Etain): not blind,
    It feels like premox, a touch of oxidation even in the colour, spicieness, tired and haggard. 90-91
