    November 8, 2013 - To me, the structure of this wine dominated the fruit. I tasted much high profile acids and tannins. I should have visited this bottle later since I believe that it was still very young.

    November 8, 2013 - Robert's note is spot on. I left my first pour in the glass for 5 hours, taking wee sniffs and snips along the way, and while it got better with each successive visit, the fruit that I kept waiting to plump up in the glass just didn't materialize. Nonetheless, beautifully structured and still quite fresh.

    November 8, 2013 - Incredible freshness dominates the senses, but not cloyingly. The fruit that's here is stunning, there's not just a lot of it. Very nice finish. Doesn't taste like an old wine at all.

    April 10, 2013 - Bobby Kacher Tasting and Dinner (The Boarding House - Chicago IL): Not very forthcoming aromatically, but palate displays good combination of black fruit, meatiness, and reduced mushroom flavors that seem classically Gevrey. Long and elegant middle and finish.

    February 17, 2010 - A very disappointed bottled. Was partially corked.
