06/30/21 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (FRANCE LOIRE) 13%; 35 year old vines; aged 9 months on lees. Honied nose, as well it should be. Ripe quince too.

At least a couple of years from its best, I'd venture. Long, detailed aftertaste with textural cling, burnish. 17.7+.

Black, peppery, effusive, and seemingly more concentrated than any vintage to come before. I mean, this is all over the place, aromatically. And deep, and intense./ Sweet and spicy fruit galore.

(WT063021-12) 17 CROZES HERMITAGE LES JALETS, PAUL JABOULET AINE  $27.99
06/30/21 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (FRANCE MEDITERRANEAN) 13.5%; from the estate's 15 acre vineyard plus purchased grapes; Decanter 92/100. Very dark color, especially for the vintage./ Oh, here it is, the full northern Rhone syrah aromatic spread in a brilliantly reductive presentation that coveys all its inimitable attributes. Raspberry, white pepper, smoked meat, and lavender. Best of these Jalets I've nosed./ Flavors less effusive than aromas because they're damped down by considerable tannins. They rally on the finish, spreading in peacock's tail fashion. More to come. 17.6+.
