    March 15, 2020 - Glorious bottle.
    Initial stewed fruit resolved after 90 minutes of air.
    No rush at all to consume the rest.

    March 1, 2019 - Orange. Tea, bullion, red fruit. Complex and dry. Long. Previos bottle was less developed.

    August 9, 2018 - Open knit and pleasing on the tongue: broad red and dark plum fruit with garrigue and stone on the palate.

    June 21, 2018 - Very developed now, but not over the top. Tea, roses and red fruit on the nose. Delicate style, a solid amount of mature tannins. Tasted blind, I would probably have guessed Nebbiolo.

    April 19, 2018 - BYOB 2018-04-19 - Blind tasting (Göteborgs Vinkällare): Medium garnet color.

    Wow. This nose is just lovely with impressive depth and complexity. It's bursting with dried strawberry, dried cherry, black tea, oriental bazaar, dried flowers, cured meats, balsamic spice, sous bois, mushrooms, beet roots and what not. There's so much going on here that it's hard to put it in words. VERY Burgundian.

    Medium bodied with super silky texture, vibrant acidity and great concentration to the flavors but still light as a feather. Again very savory with mushrooms, oriental spice, balsamic notes and dried red fruit. Seamless transition to the finish that lasts for minutes. Amazing.

    I could've sworn that this was a mature Burgundy of noble heritage. Impressive to see that Châteauneuf can show such qualities. This bottle was so damn good and I wouldn't wish for a day more aging to it.
