2017 tasted 2020. Bananas and wildflowers on the nose! The scent is almost oily. Malolactic fermentation gives it a silky tannic feel on the top of the mouth. Slight hint of bananas and chalk on the end. A surprising long finish. Very nice. I’m a confirmed Chard hater, but this causes me to reconsider my prejudices. — 4 days ago

2016 tasted 2020. Dark chocolate on the nose with some notes of chalk. Cassis and raspberry fruit on the front — but the fruit isn’t very intense. Medium tannic structure with a lot of calcaire incorporated into the soft mouth feel. This a delicate wine all the way to the end. Lingering finish with an aftertaste that reminds of apricots. — 3 days ago
It’s been a while old friend!
Very earthy nose, coupled with wood.
Palate displays caramel, cola and pomegranate. Surprisingly, flavors are somewhat muddled, indicating that this is past it’s bedtime. Good tannin and acid profile, but overall, we waited too long with this. — 10 days ago
