Haven’t had this wine in 10+ years. Apart from being way too oaky, it offers purity, acidity, well managed tannins and an elegant touch. But... the oak treatment of yesteryear ain’t positive.

Exceptional quality with smokey black fruit, minerality and just a kiss of black pepper. Wonderful length, the very epitome of Northern Rhône Syrah. Really starting to show is class

Desert island red. Intense smoke, lavender, pepper, blueberry, bay leaf. Tannin, acid and alcohol work together seamlessly. Tasted the 2010.

Very expressive nose. Red fruits, mint, dill, strawberry bubble gum/candy. Smooth mouthfeel, med+ tannins with a little bit sweet finish. I like this one than La Landonne at this point. 2012 vintage

Gorgeous, velvety texture combined with luscious and ripe dark fruits and a leathery finish. Yes, ma'am.
