Drinking great. Comparable style and quality to a top 10 year old Premier Cru. Cuvée J always needs the most bottle age amongst the Evesham collection. Drink the other bottlings if you want to enjoy it young.

The 2012 "Cuvee J." I got this the same time as the non-J version of the Puits Sec, 2013 vintage, and I must admit I preferred the latter. The fruit on this one is more up-front New World in style and while it does mellow out a bit with some airtime, it's also more monolithic without either the elegance or detail of the lesser bottling, from the lesser vintage...

Not as interesting as I had hoped, but still approachable and tasty. This wine has some of that Dr. Pepper cola flavor going on, with subtle vanilla and spice.

Fruit forward and fresh. A big right turn from the 2011, but still delightful with herb chicken and garlic green beans.

2012. A bit on the rich side for EW but soundly outstanding nonetheless. Best in 5 to 20+ years.

Cuvée J for my J. Same birth year. Similar attitudes in life: boisterous, beautiful, and getting, though wonderful when young, much better with five years of age.
