    October 16, 2020 - A lovely surprise - still alive but drink up in my view!

    A gentle raspberry nose and soft palate. Probably a bit past its best, but enjoyable nevertheless.

    September 13, 2020 - Wine was fairly light in color upon opening, but really evolved as the evening went on and paired beautifully with six hour smoked spare ribs. Wine was opened to let it breathe and taste and vacuum sealed for six hours prior to dinner. Also opened a 1995 Telegraphe La Crau magnum and both wines were a hit. Was happy to see the Clos des Papes still has some years left.

    June 29, 2020 - 22 ans pour ce Magnum, sur son plateau désormais. Un joli bouquet et palais sur des arômes de cerises kirshées, cuir, herbes de garrigue, finesse des tanins et persistance aromatique signent là une grande bouteille ! À boire désormais et à marier par exemple avec un pigeon en 2 cuissons… 95/100

    June 21, 2020 - Füllstand und Korken waren einwandfrei. Der erste Schluck war enttäuschend. Der Wein zeigte sich viel zu sauer. Die Farbe war hell rot. Kaum Frucht. Mit mehr Luft legte sich das Saure und die Frucht zeigte sich. Trotzdem wirkte der Wein fad, auch am nächsten Tag. Ich bin auf die nächste gespannt. Keine Bewertung

    May 30, 2020 - Given some of the other comments I think is is now in decline. It was enjoyable but not exciting. I would drink up.
