After visiting a few years ago and picking up a few bottles, I wanted to see how this was showing since many ‘14s are in a great spot right now.

This was arguably better at pop and pour than it was an hour in. Very perfumed with sweet baking spices (vanilla, cinnamon) and baked mixed berry pie (lots of sweet blueberries and blackberries). Dusty too with cassis and graphite. In time, it turned more red fruit dominant on the palate alongside sandalwood, cocoa, clay and spiced black cherry liqueur. Rich, smooth but enough structure to keep improving. A friend wanted a juicy, balanced Napa cab and this fit the bill nicely.

Another outstanding offering from Beau Vigne.
Nose is flamboyant with maple syrup, sweet oak, coffee and luscious black cherries. On the palette, you're left with the impression that so much flavor has been jammed into the bottle! Tannins are prominent, regal and ripe. Sweet and expansive ending to what is a glorious example. This will evolve to an even better place in time. If you have em In your cellar, leave em be for another two years. Your patience will be rewarded.
@Martin G Rivard thank you for the gift my friend.

Found a new decanter, thick glass impossible to break easy to clean & holds entire bottle.
I prefer the Juliet over the Romeo. Juliet had a nice plushness to it whereas the Romeo is a little tighter & astringent at this time, plus at only 15.9 abv its a little lite for me.
Thanks
