    April 18, 2015 - A lovely wine, albeit lacking a little depth of fruit. Quite structured, and a little austere. The nose shows more of the black and red fruits than the more complex smoky and bacon and meaty notes that one would expect. But on the palate, the wine is feminine, elegant and beautifully balanced. Drinking now.

    December 22, 2013 - Lightly corked. Shame, what was underneath seemed good and very refined.

    February 13, 2011 - Gentle, smoky, meaty syrah. A little black fruit. Well made. 92+

    December 15, 2009 - Earthy, vegetal, sauvage like in its character with perfumed red fruits. Very meaty and brooding but still elegant. A slight oakiness which is well integrated and the wine is balanced and harmonious with firm tannins. Enjoyable without really exciting.

    October 29, 2009 - Still young. Very focused nose and very well defined palate. Needs time to come around. Pedigree and winemaking are clearly stellar. Drink 2010 to 2020.
