What a delicate, bright and pulsing wine. More Burgundian than I was expecting but with such wonderful texture and energy.

😲 totally meeting expectations. Aromatics were gorgeous, still very fresh and floral. The full bouquet 💐 green parts included but not at all vegetative.

This is wonderfully pure and clear blackcurrant with notes of sage. Kind of one note but one very pure note. Pretty.

Hold moly. The tannins are still grippy. Great balance and fruit through the finish. Gorgeous from this rare old bird.

Mind boggling. Wine life changing stuff.... pomegranate and grapefruit skin on the nose with tar pepper and blackberries. The palate was super and the finish lasts forever. I can still taste it. Holy s**t

Tawny color, deep and darker than the old Grivot. Wonderful aromatics in the nose. Old Rhone syrah nose with notes of light fruit, dried brush and a little medicine. Memorable finish.

1998. Incredible purity here. Rusted iron dust, dried violets, beef broth, a silky mouthfeel, exotic, perfumey, and very polished and delicate tannins. Stunning!
