No I have not open one yet. Just going off the reviews on CT. Wine Canuck recently posted notes. I bought the Tournon and am looking to do a comparison in the future. Really enjoy N.Rhone Chapoutier. From the notes on the Malakoff, it's more N.Rhone than fruit bomb Aussie.


My notes in CT from December 22...

A stellar night of a couple of 94 pointers, this along with the 2005 Elderton Command were both stunning wines, this was definitely from a cooler climate and had subtle freshness and complexity over the Command and although I scored them the same, this had a very slight edge, and was over $30 cheaper to boot - Dark, full bodied with a nose of raspberry, blueberry, plum, spice, pepper vanilla, amazing acidity, very well structured, complex and balanced with years to go, sweet, vibrant and intense on the palate with excellent length, a great wine! (94 Points). (402 views)

Wonderful stuff, sort of started a mini revival for me in terms of Oz..
