  • Deep purple, almost black in the glass. Ripeness again, like on the Cornas and Crozes Hermitage. Like drinking a well-made Barossa Shiraz. Something either went wrong with this vintage or with the winemaking style, but these wines taste nothing like Northern Rhone anymore. Still well-made of course, just not representative of an Old World classic.

  • Opaque, of course. Very glossy again!
    A little more serious compared to the fruit bomb first hit of the Maison Bleu: Deep, big and broad, some creamy oak here too, and more of that minty edge of the Saint-Joseph. Cool and poised, obvious power, a sense of layers… but it will want to time to open out.
    Big attack, this is weighty and has great presence with real drive. Gorgeous silky black fruits, some sweet liquorice, more of that black cherry! Red elements too, plenty of mineral grip and super intensity. Proper.
