Can you say QPR? I bought this at $25 a few years ago and boy is this nice. Smells of kirsch, garrigue, dried herns, and a wild brand of plum. Explosive palate and blockbuster finish. Still years away from plateauing and too bad this was my last bottle. Lovely wine with lots of upside left. Highly recommended.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.

  1. Served a magnum of this at a dinner party this evening, and it was the warmest, roundest CdP I’ve had in years.

  2. mbkmwi.I think you’re spot on. This is a very solid wine to drink right now, and I can easily see that the wine would be even a touch better from magnum. Glad you enjoyed it.
