    March 19, 2017 - Very modern style of Bordeaux, which I do not really care for but I can see why people enjoy it. Not overy structured and very approachable now. Good acid, and medium tannins that do not get in the way.

    Dark berries and chocolate on the palate with a medium finish of toasted oak. Nothing overly complex.

    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?
