    December 22, 2016 - Mmmmm nice dark meaty wine. Dark crimson red to black. Some orange bricking toward the edge. Dark olive is the dominant fruit. Nose mostly dominated by wood at first. Nice old wood. Dry. Good tannic structure coming in to balance. Great old world Syrah, Cab, and Merlot blend. Delicious. Aged well so far.

    April 22, 2016 - Took about half an hour after opening to come around. Fairly soft, black olive and fruit. Medium bodied. Drinking fine. Don't think it has much to go though. Drink

    December 2, 2014 - 5:39 pm (popped and poured)
    Colour: deep, dark, hardly transparent and pretty radiant violet hue without a trace of discolouration
    Nose: black olives, fresh brambles, dried leaves, nougat, plenty of uncrushed coffee beans, some leather, just a hint of garrigue and minor impression of oak. So far the nose seems rather mellow, nicely balanced, not at all challenging and not surely not too gabby. Still a bit reserved in sense of intensity.
    Taste: by far not as balanced as the nose predicted; at the moment a bit disjoint, flat, rustic, full of impressions of gravy and dusty chocolate and plenty of lush greenery; I suggest a postponement until further notice … well until an hour or so. Type for you then …
    6:51 pm
    Nose: well, so far still rather similar impression; some more (troubling) herbaceous (not garrigue'ish) and brutish sweaty aromas are rising at the moment. A few indications of old charcoal'istic oak, too. Not quite sure where this is heading. I am afraid nowhere I'd like to have it ...
    Taste: Hmmm, still pretty disjoint; the tannins are appearing more ferocious (as well as dusty) than before and the body is still rather flat and lazy; no comment to the finish; I don't and won't give up – however the signals aren't that mixed I am afraid, anyway I will pull through with this. Till an hour or so ...
    8:12 pm
    No real shift happening I am afraid. On the palate still disjoint, perhaps even more than before. Apart of that still very immobile. Let's wait a bit more.
    8:31 am (breakfast update for a change)
    I think I got to face reality! Yesterday I did not want to believe it, although it was pretty clear! The first hour of nose indulgence was probably the last exhale of this red blend. It is simply over the hill! Still well equippted with plenty of hard tannin, but in centre of attention just emaciated flatlands. Quite sad! Well, what can you do. No real life – no rating! Still consumable, but no fun at all! I guess my recent choice of “Happening Now Tasting” wines weren't that fortunate! Next time I do better!

    June 12, 2010 - One hour decant. A very nice wine with a complex flavor profile. There's smooth white pepper, light saddle leather and cherry fruit. There's plenty of tannin and a bit of astringency so it needs some more time in the bottle, but it's very nice right now. This wine comes from a Provencal project that includes Aubert de Villaine, the proprietor of DRC and Jacques Seysses, the founder of Dujac. They were looking for a property on which they could grow and vinify grapes other than pinot. They liked the south facing slopes and they found limestone soil and many similarities with the soild of St. Emillion. They bought the domaine in 1989. It is very close to the Mediterranean, about 30 miles frolm Bandol on the coast. It appears from the satellite view that the vineyard is directly across the road from a golf course. This cuvee is an interesting blend of Cabernet, Syrah and Merlot. The wine combines the flavors of all three with some of the velvet smoothness of the merlot to balance the roughness of the cabernet, with the syrah for spiciness. It is available for less than $20 and is a good buy at that price. Excellent.
