    July 3, 2022 - Perfect cork; decanted 2 hours before. Considerable sediment. Moderate bouquet. Deep garnet; hint of bricking. Mid- to heavy-weight mouthfeel. Fruit dominant; red cherry roll. Generous, possibly overly so. Sensuous and big yet elegant. Handles its 14% alcohol well--not heady or hot. Tannins fully integrated. Gained a bit more taste nuances after c.1hr while remaining a big wine. Likely past its peak (pure youthful power probably best expression), but should be OK for a couple more years. I will decant next bottle for longer (3 hrs?). I prefer certain less concentrated Cote Rotie/CdP wines, but this is an interesting bottle. QPR not great given status of this wine and possibly rarity due to premature disappearance of its maker. Paired with beef, which was OK. Likely better pairing with fowl/game.

    May 20, 2022 - Exquisite bottle. Big and full of fruit almost cooked (not in a bad way) plums and figs, so much complexity, silky smooth, aromas you can smell all day, a finish that lasts forever. A perfect wine for me. So sad what happened to the winemaker and the subsequent pricing.

    April 23, 2022 - Pleasantly surprised. Deep garnet. The monster tannins have largely resolved, not disappeared. Full cherry, dark plum, garrigue nose. Palate adds spice, black pepper and hints of sweetness. Big, long finish. Happy to have more bottles to enjoy going forward.

    August 29, 2021 - 3rd of 3 bottles.
    Loved it, big and bold yet somehow exacting and satisfying.
    Stewed red fruits, cherry and plum compote, tar, licorice, wet soil.
    The structure is very good, showing medium body and refined tannins, alongside quite nice acidity, giving a refreshing lift to this bold-ish wine.
    Drink now through 2022 or so, lovely and at peak.

    March 6, 2021 - I must say this was a huge surprise. Quite an astounding wine. A wine of power and intensity, but not excessive or pompous. And drunk at a perfect point in its evolution. Big figgy nose, reminiscent of carob, treacle, molasses, but with vibrant fresh fruit in the middle, so still that exciting tension between youth and age, wisdom and vigour. Thick and dense, but lively and tense. Lots of brambly forest fruit, spiciness and acidity from the Syrah, and nice creamy sweetness from the Mourvedre. Long and generous and lip-smacking jammy smoky finish. Super! The Cabernet is less obvious, but it should give it long life. Not as tannic as I feared. A great wine.
