    November 4, 2011 - Lovely, complex rancio and toffee aroma with a streak of citrus for freshness; super acidity - what was it that Broadbent said about some brut nature Champagne: gargling with razors? - well, that's about the structure of this. This is a "young" wine still but the complexity is already obvious. Outstanding. Despite being so youthful, I so loved the high acidity structure that this might just have been my favourite wine of the night.

    February 27, 2006 - Bottled in 2002. A very interesting nose: clearer and brighter than the 1989 Colheita Sercia. The palate too is clearer, cleaner and bright. Very Good Indeed/Excellent.
