  • Tasted at Beaucastel, spectacular, elegant and powerful at the same time, youthful, dark fruit, blackberry, spice, pepper, cedar, integrated tannins, long, lingering finish

  • Every now and then you open and wine and from the nose of it your get struck with the question “ why didn’t I buy those 3 bottles the other day?” And this is definitely one of those.
    Originally when we tried this a few years back ( Papies 94-95) this was the shy version of the mesmerising 2000 ( Papies 98) . But on this day and at this time this is now fully blossomed and it will challenge the 2000 in a few years.
    The nose is exceptional, soft herbs de Provence, lovely dark fruit, ever so elegant and harmonious. Really impressive and frankly a true Hommage of a wine. Easy 96 and maybe more , some decanting advisable and this has another 20 easy years of beauty.

  • Dark red. Lots of tire shop and black fruit, very concentrated and serious nose. The flavours too seem so deep and textured, black fruit, pepper and beef broth. Very dry long warm finish.

    Not the wine others have noted. I am confused. Not fun to drink.

  • Second bottle. Better in the first one before.
    It’s powerful, fruity and concentrated wine that with the nose of red fruit, bacon fat and peppery.
    A bottle that not to be missed out if you are a lover of powerhouse.

  • Blind tasted, this was the runaway, classy wine of the day. Nose of rich red cherry fruit, warm frosted cinnamon buns, blood iron; lush and concentrated. 95+
