Love the wines, can’t wait to try. 100% Syrah between Jamet plots, yes please.

40 months in new oak…do these La La’s taste like Bourbon?

Almost as long as the vines have been in the ground! Sign me up. [cheers.gif]

And here I thought countries had recently agreed on limiting deforestation.

Not even remotely close.

This is super intriguing. Clearly a very well thought through project, though will be hard to say when we get the first release. It might be 2022, if the vintage is high enough quality.

These wines are not board darlings, but I think they are among the best wines in the world.

I am not usually very fond of wines which are influenced by a lot of new oak. But the La La La’s i have been lucky enough to taste with some age has been truly amazing. (95’s and 98’s).
