Community Tasting Notes 2

  • In2wines Does not like this wine: 87 points

    April 17, 2020 - Bordeaux April 2020
    First bottle of this in 2016 was good, spot on and a lot of fun .. a bit like Chave 2008 but with less body, but truely good, but over the last 4 years all other bottles (3) have not been very good, very closed or just bad quality, flat, and a green dry'ness, I do not get it, even with a good decant nothing good or pleasant comes out ... In my opion to avoid and not up the price tag - it taste like a low quality Cotes de Rhône, and would probally never be very good.

    April 4, 2020 - Peppery with meaty and leathery notes on the nose.
    In the palate i could feel some pepper, spices, umami and some mushromy notes.
    Fine tannins and balanced acidity, overall is at his peak i believe.
    The flavour os not as intese as other shyraz from Rhone.
    I do not expect this wine to last very long now it drink beautifully and perhaps is in a downward trajectory in its evolution.
