Spectacular to watch this wine evolve. Opened 2 hours before and evolved nicely. Lots of tannins . But well integrated Jo t of black pepper , dried rose petals and tobacco on the nose. Well halved with a long finish. A low 13% alcohol - really lovely. Will drink well for another decade at least. #guigal - c’est un vin bien expresse- bravo — 3 days ago
The nose shows syrah usual traits : pepper, blackberry, there is even a bit of bacon in there! Definitely northern Rhone red. The palate is well balanced, there is a good acid drive in there, there is a bright fruit, some width, some matter, a good mouthfeel, lively tannins with a drying effect in mid palate and a long finish with fruit and pepper and that drying effect for quite a long time. I have been missing that wine for as long as we moved to Poland. I used to buy it from the grocery store downstairs back in Paris for 8 euro. I was so psyched to find it in the Wine shop downstairs here in Warsaw! As always, this is a solid CDR. — 9 days ago
Dark scarlet tawny. Mostly opaque. Sweet, fruit forward nose. Notes of black cherry, blueberries, graphite, some menthol and a little smoke. Gobs of fruit in the mouth. Some cranberries and notes of smoked meat evolve as it gains air and opens up. Very masculine in the mouth at first, angular with powerful structure. With four hours of air it becomes silky and smooth. This was luscious￼, and bottles like this have years of fun in front of it. — 15 days ago
Letzte Flasche des 2016ers, nicht mehr so spritzig, aber immer noch säurebetont und fruchtig zugleich, feiner Wein. — 9 days ago
Nose went through an interesting evolution as it opened up. Notes of strawberry, violets, top soil, baking spice and a touch of manure.
Ripe and fruity but elegant. Strawberry, cranberry, touch of oaky creaminess, with some floral notes. Good acidity, smooth tannins, and a touch of heat.
Really well made stuff. Really enjoyed the complex nose and balanced palate. — 9 days ago
Doftar underbart med petroleum, päron och annat god frukt. Smakar salt. Svårdrucket jämfört med andra albarinos. Men gott till mat. Ändå inte ett återköp — 10 days ago
