Way too early but found this on the cheap at Costco. Wanted to beta test. Recommendation: stock up. Blackberry fruit is quickly overtaken by bacon fat, iron, tobacco, leather, and floral flavors. The tannins remain strong, if not astringent, providing ample backbone suggesting this can easily go another 15 years. Buyer beware: this needs to be your thing.

Fruity aroma and taste from rich Grenache. A bit spicy, but softer than Gigondas. Smooth tanning. Ripen red fruits flavor can be felt after more than 1 hour. 2 hours or decanting are necessary. @1750, Datong - X, 180326-180327

I thought I would get into Guigal’s 2012 Ch. N. De P. To see if it was worth stocking up for the long haul. It is. Not the deepest EG has ever produced. But the structure is solid with a fair bit of cassis, wet stones, leather, tobacco, black licorice. Tannins are there, but not fierce. Not sure how much aging will affect the wine, but even if it stays as is that’s okay.
