Other Reviews....
Assertive cherry and blue fruit preserve, potpourri and incense aromas display outstanding clarity and pick up exotic spice and smoky mineral flourishes with aeration. Pure, focused and energetic in the mouth, offering appealingly sweet blueberry, cherry liqueur and violet pastille flavors that show sharp definition and depth and a hint of smoked meat. Deepens steadily on the strikingly long, energetic finish, which features resonating florality and chewy, slowly building tannins.
95-97 point
Josh Raynolds - Vinous

Greater depth and tannic finesse than this producer's 2018 Chaillots, with violets, raspberries, blackberries and rosemary all crowding for attention at this stage. Very smooth and velvety mouthfeel, displaying no heaviness, but with a robust tannic structure that's very Cornas. Long finish, with a big, mineral undertow. Drinking Window 2027 - 2045.
