First glass was massive fruit but, frankly, a bit of a klutzy mess. Make no mistake, there was substance lurking in the background but it was simply overpowered by brambles. Placed the cork back in the bottle and figured I would give it a day to see if things would settle down...and did it ever. Day 2 and the brambles we’re still there but now there was an entire hillside of garrigue and, in particular, fresh sage...like...I just mowed over a sage bush. Amazing. Structure? Good heavens. The tannins seemed to build and build all the way up to the final glass. These give the indication that they’re going to be drinking very handsomely well past 2025...and I suspect beyond. I would say the best is yet to come with these.

Has warmth without being hot, ripe fruit but not jammy. Just super suave. Popped , poured and consumed over about an hour’s time so probably didn’t unlock its full potential.

Beautiful finesse - violet and blueberry, lavender and jasmine. Chalky texture with great length.

Explosive kirsch liqueur, roasted earth and savoury garrigue. Tannins not as firm as expected, but great freshness.

A complete wine. Guarrigue, violet, dark red fruit, grippy still. Well balanced at this point. Should turn out great in 5 to 7 years

Good now but you definitely need to give it some air. Going to reload and revisit in 4-5yrs.

Complex aromas of Musk, Barnyard Notes , Wet Bark and Dark Cherries. Cola, dark cherries on the pallet. Lots going on here. Exquisite balance of flavor, oak and acidity. Mostly Grenache. Great expression of the Southern Rhône. Will only improve with age.
