been six years since I tired this last ~ hasn’t faded much!

barnyard funk quickly blew off revealing menthol, mulled berries, carob and suede

a core of crunchy berry fruit was piercing ~ cherry lozenges and liqueur, cassis, cranberry, raspberry candy ~ JUICY ~ some star anise and mace on the finish

Takes a moment to get going but then this is such a classic. Spicy, rustic, a bit austere, but there are some subtle floral and complex fruit notes that appear and shift as this develops over a few days open. Really nice

Tasting Group 4/3/22 My 2nd, Group 6th. Cherris and plums. Nice wood. Slight sprite. Seems younger than others in the tasting. Evident oak. Mouthful, nice grip.

Nose has dehydrated cherry, faded Fall rose, dried blackberry, mild cedar, wet leather and moist baking spice.

Palate has dried raspberry, dried cherry, tart cranberry, cherry Twizzlers, dehydrated strawberry with light tannins and a medium+ finish. Satisfying for the vintage.

Decanted 3H.

Paired to an apple wood smoked rotisserie chicken, 24H salt brine, 12H dry rest, olive oil/Za'atar rub. Locally obtained (Mill River Farm, New Marlborough, MA) and roasted for ~110M. A challenge to outdoor cook in the cooler New England Fall temps of 50°F (10°C) today, but we made it successful with a hot grill. Local root vegetables roasted, below the turning bird, always a great combination.

Ultra perfumed, expressive and alluring bouquet. 2009 and Champans proved to be a wonderful marriage. It shows layered complexity, seamless integration and a mineral backbone. Ripe red berries, exotic spices and a touch of red licorice. There is a great midpalate richness that leads to a long and harmonious finish. In a great zone right now.

Super elegant. Ripe strawberries and dash of citrus. Sustains for ages. Very classy.
