  • La robe montre des traces d'évolution. Le nez est curieux, très sudiste sur des notes d'eau de vie, presque VDN sec (grenache). La bouche est costaud, très loin de ce qu'on attendrait d'un beaujolais, les tanins sont élégants, un vin qui joue dans un registre assez élevé avec du volume, seule la finale, assez courte, trahit l'origine du terroir. Au final, je suis partagé, admiratif devant une bouteille qui dépasse tout ce qu'on peut imaginer sur ce terroir, mais pas bouleversé non plus. Peut-être fallait-il attendre 5 ou 10 ans de plus ? Mais la robe était déjà bien brune... Une belle bouteille en tous cas.

  • Nice dark dense core surrounded by lighter floral and herbal notes. This is really lush and complex, with nice acidity. We were surprised by its density nd the layers of dark fruit and licorice. Wound up pretty tight, with good evidence that this should age for many years.

  • Vibrant floral aroma of rose petals and violets upon opening. After several hours of air time, sweet aromas of baked bread start to emerge. Dense silky fruit and darker, earthy minerality in the background. Hopefully this will continue to improve in the coming years.

  • Been open for a little over an hour... Has a hot, alcohol smell on first pass, but dissipates to reveal beautiful fruit. Strong tannins, and definitely a younging, but very nice. Beautiful fruit, slight herb, no mineral or barnyard...mostly focused on fruit. Will sit on my other bottle for a year or two.

  • Quite nice right when opened, and gained complexity with a few hours of air. Tart red fruit, rocks, tar, corn tortilla (not in an odd way), hints of green banana. Surprisingly long finish of tart fruit and mineral. Cohesive, elegant, and delicious, drinking very well at this young age.
