    December 21, 2014 - From a 375ml. Pnp, initial impressions tanic and restrained, did not let up in the hour or so that I drank this wine. For a wine with 80% Merlot it felt harsh. Clearly it needs a lot more time in the cellar and may well improve a lot because it does have the structure to mature, at this stage I did not enjoy it, I only drank 1/2 a bottle of the 375ML.~85 pts.

    October 9, 2014 - Good QPR, albeit a little young. Excellent, firm tannic structure, a little weak on depth, but a thoroughly enjoyable bottle all the same. Would buy again and cellar for at least ten years.

    July 1, 2014 - This wine surprised me. Mushroom, earth, and pencil nose. It is fresh, vibrant, young, tannic, chewy, thick, deep, long, structured, balanced, and beautiful. Bravo Monseiur Magrez.

    March 28, 2014 - Lots of delicious, thick Merlot here but the tannins are very prickly and obtrusive, something that seems to be a theme with recent 2010s. I would cellar this for 10 years (as a point of comparison, the 2000 Fombrauge is drinking wonderfully now).
