If there’s any producer that I almost worship, it’s this one. So perhaps it was not a surprise that my tasting for the first time of his Arbois red was a bit underwhelming.. I will say I did not decant, was a Pop and pour. His wines are so subtle and so well constructed. I have half a case to go so I’ll take my time. That said, these are always very interesting wines and worth anyone’s time..

Now we’re talkin— must have had at least 3 or 4 bottles prior to this, & they were all mute. Completely expressive now. Light sunshine vermillion color in glass. Wild red raspberries, fine tannins, medium, soft acidity. Floral & those fruits on nose. From a producer I hold complete faith in, happy the reward came ( his Chardonnay is my catnip). I did not decant. The question remains: were they bad bottles or just in a ‘dumb’ phase?
