    December 7, 2016 - Similar to previous bottles, a little light on the aromatics though. Still one of my favorites from the '10 vintage.

    November 23, 2016 - Everything I expected! Modern, ripe, full bodied, chocolatey St.-Emilion. Could almost have been from Napa. Very tasty and easily drinkable/easy to appreciate. Ripe plum flavours mingle with the chocolatey oak and lots of cigar box/tobacco development already. Structure is soft and smooth. Intensity almost pronounced. Everyone loved it and enjoyed it more than the 2011 Brunello Tenuta Nuova from CDNeri. A testimony to it's international, soft style. Is it a negative?

    September 18, 2016 - 2-hour decant; mid/full bodied, plush tannins, fruit-forward, young Bdx that leads with some oak and Cab Franc tartness - better with food at the moment. This will develop into something more interesting in a few years.

    August 31, 2016 - Drank over two days. This wine needs to breathe, both to blow off oak elements, and to add weight and depth. Once it breathes deeply it comes alive, showing impressive balance of flowers, fruit, sanguinity, and mineral depth. Great balance, generous mouthfeel, and quite long. A very young wine that needs three to five years from now to come into its own and it should deliver pleasure through 2028-2030. Decant for 5+ hours if drinking now. Great QPR! 92-93.

    June 11, 2016 - Thick, inky, deep purple with sour cherry and cocoa notes. Will benefit with more time but getting close to its window.
