Deep Ruby color with complex aromas of black fruits, herbs, floral and smoky notes! On the palate flavors of concentrated black fruits, tobacco and spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry , currants and blueberry with herbs, tobacco and pepper spice. Fine tannins, long finish ending with fruit, herb, spice and earthy character.

Cool to taste next to Clape. Clearly a more open and immediate style that has the benefit of some bottle age. Nose is leather, asian spice, cured meat, black plum. Palate is broad with more length and less complexity. I like JLC's wines and they are versatile entry points to the Rhône . Maybe a little less cerebral but certainly user-friendly and available.

Some funk but fruit is getting lost... Modernity lost in translation? Past peak for sure.
