Magnum, Parker 94 spectator 88, so it’s somewhere in the ballpark, definitely needs a decant.

Pour a glass & let sit for a couple hours. This is a day 3 wine for sure, only $40.00 for the mag so I wasn’t to concerned about opening too soon. — 25 days ago
Interesting to have seen this against the Keller. It seems pretty unfair, for me at least, to have pitted a Marsanne against a Riesling, but there's surprisingly more similarities here than I'd like to admit. They were both highly intense, strongly herbal, almost-exotic in their fruit profile, and ungodly in length. Of course I preferred the Keller's striking incisiveness, but there's a certain elegance in the smoky minerality of the Chapoutier that's quite alluring. This is undoubtedly a RP100 - rich, oily, concentrated, and very full. Finishes deeply warming with a nutty bitter touch. Surprisingly, I actually liked this. Went well with our Chinese banquet. — 25 days ago
Earthy and beautiful. Still good fruit and tannin. Fully mature and a pleasure to drink. Bottle inherited from a recently deceased friend so it had been well kept. — 8 days ago
Ripe black cherries on the nose and the palate, good balance of dry and fruity — at Leib in Tallinn — 15 days ago
