bought on release, given away compared to current pricing, opened tonight. Gorgeous wine from the get go with room to run, super nose of iron, a bit of meat, licorice, dark fruit, all echoed on the palate, dark fruit and plum, hints of smoke, just gorgeous. Silky palate. Wife rarely has more than a glass or so, but tonight kept pace with me the entire bottle, emptied too quickly. 91 reds are a forgotten vintage, far better than considered when released in the shadow of 90. — 5 days ago
Light gold color, youthful appearance in the glass. Great CC nose with notes of citrus, ginger, reddish clay, wet stones and tan spice. Fruit still very present, matched against some fine-grained acidity. Awesome mouth feel. I know some of these can go south sooner rather than later, but this was right in the zone - youthful with plenty of energy. Great showing tonight. — 3 days ago
Nose has peaches, white florals, orange zest, raspberries and chalk dust.
Palate has dehydrated strawberry, faint red grapefruit, green melon, chalky minerals (dry) with some salinity on the finish.
A sub-$15 (might have been less, didn't write the price on the label as I generally do...) winner from Costco; I'm not the least disappointed. — 4 days ago
👃Perfumed orange florals, peppery lemon & minerals
👅More pretty & less intense than many PYCMs. Palate is medium bodied. Not totally dry
Remaing wine Slow Decanted in my refrigerator
Change in character vs Day 1. The subtle fruit has been shrouded by intense minerality
👅Flinty, smoky minerality with just enough lemon fruit. Nicely salty. Long bold and distinctly dry finish
Quite different on the 2 occasions. It was more delicate and very nice on Day 1 but I preferred the intensity & minerality that had developed by Day 14💕🥂

Ravishing nose. Vivid Black cherry fruit. Lovely granite. Bursting blackberry. Leather. So focused and exuberant. Stunning aromas. 9.5 aromas. Palate is gamey, meaty and loaded with black cherry and blackberry but also has oodles of freshness and granitic cut. So sappy and pure. Perfect balance and incredible acidity. So cleansing and fresh. Lovely velvety tannins and super long. Best since the 14. A brilliant wine. Almost a 9.5. The energy here is incomparable. Benchmark bojo. — 6 days ago
Fun & fruity.
A bit more ripe fruit and body than expected in a classic Provence rosé, but I like it. Madame Gavoty blends in a few hours saignee rosé with direct press. Raspberry, strawberry, cherry, garrigue, wet limestone on the nose. Red fruits, orange zest, sour peach candy on the palate. Mineral sneaks back in on the finish. — 5 days ago
Aged for at least five years in the Lanson cellars before disgorgement, a blend of Grand Cru wines from the Côte des Blancs, classic Blanc de Blancs, 100% Chardonnay, pale lemon, fine bubble flow and light mousse, aromas of fresh stone fruits, warm biscuits and hints of floral notes. On the palate fresh fruit flavors of white peaches and crisp apple with hints of citrus zest. Long finish ending with rich refreshing yeasty mineral character. Nice! — 9 days ago
