Lovely wine, both of us approve. Bought from Tesco with 25% off. — 6 months ago
Southern Rhône blend of Syrah, Mourvèdre & Grenache. Medium plus body and acidity, nicely balanced. Good intensity and complexity.
As expected from this region ripe red & black fruits with plenty of secondary and tertiary notes. Picked up vanilla, mushroom, tobacco, earth, wet leaves and black pepper. Slightly astringent tannins. Could do with a little more aging. — a year ago

Absolutely wonderful. Raspberry and earthy leather. — a year ago
Opened the 2009 vintage in May 2020. Definitely showing it’s age. Deep purple with a little orange (my wife says brown) around the rim. Regardless it ages nicely.
Smell: leather, old wood (not oak just like an old barn) earth, has a bit of a mineral tinge.
Taste: dark to black fruit. Plum. Earth notes as well. Truffle. Bold and tannic. Highish acid. Dry.
Overall very classic right bank. Very good wine but too bold to drink more than a bottle. Will blow out the pallet for the next flavor. Eat something hardy. Steak or game. Duck might be nice. Save it for the last bottle of the night or the only bottle.
Save it for your friends don’t waste it on the in-laws. — 2 years ago
