Very complex but well-balanced and mellow. It does have a strong “barnyard” fragrance on the nose.

2015 vintage. Has a good dose of Brett on it, though you still get fruit and nuance, so it's not unbearable. Cassis, licorice, horse barn, Band-aid, black rocks, blackberry, mullberry, green stem, stale warm spices, stale tobacco. Grippy structure and firmly in the earthy spectrum. Got at anniversary dinner at Affäre.

Unabashedly cheerful Crozes, with a lovely fleshy core of crushed plum, blackberry preserves, and notes of black pepper and lavender. It's got that trademark Syrah smokiness and would pair well with fall foods like roast chicken & vegetable gratin.

What would be my desert island vine...depends, will Jean-Louis Chave reside there? 🔥 This could go awhile.
