Beautifully balanced Cornas. Powerful dark berries on the nose & palate with some peppercorns on the nose. The palate is layered & complex with savory/briny/smoky character enhancing the fruit. For all the power, the weight is effortless. Pretty stuff. — 6 days ago
2017 Very nice Gamay ready to drink. In the nose a moderate intense wine with overflowing red fruits in a beautiful cherry. In the mouth smooth tannins, full body and very rich stone fruits in a long and nice finish. The acidity can be improved within +- 5 years. — 7 days ago
Decanted for 1.5 hours. It opened up brilliantly. Ruby color with a clear rim and medium viscosity. On the nose it had frank and expressive red fruits, followed by menthol note, rose petals, wet stones and mineral underpinning. You can tell this is a complex and serious wine just by smelling it. On the palate, definitely picking up red fruits, an amazing linear precision and silky mouthfeel on solid tannic structure and a long mineral finish. Dry wine, medium acidity, medium tannins, medium alcohol and medium body. Super delicious and a treat!

16.5/20 (90/100) Легкий аромат зелёного яблока на срезе, лимонного сока и сдобной булки. Средняя тельность, высокая острая кислотность. Солоноватое во вкусе. Строгое. — 2 days ago
Just a wonderful BB which we could honestly drink everyday if we had enough, prior notes still apply:
Nose has pear juice, ripe yellow apple, lightly oxidized green apple peel, baked phyllo dough, partially aromatic white flowers and damp rocks. I always get a natural wine vibe here, without the vinegar-like profile, but it seems alive!
Palate has baked green and yellow apple pastry, crisp acidity yet dense, candle wax begins on the finish and ends with dry granite. Great balance, very lengthy finish, clean and not cumbersome, superb vintage, long life ahead. — 20 days ago
Smokin. Prototypical chinon. Rhubarb, lavender, rust, wet limestone, baby aspirin. White pepper and a little funk. Bright, kickin palate with necco wafer and slate. Lovely balance and resolved finish. Works for me. — 2 days ago
