    February 26, 2017 - Peachy colour, marzipan and almond nose. Quite ripe pear and apricot, medium body, stony fruit. A ripe style and a very well made wine but not my cup of tea so hence the score.

    December 25, 2016 - Tasted blind. A core of candle wax and custard (not sweet) with lemony brightness and a touch of oak. Pretty simple, but I’m a sucker for white wines that taste like this. They strike me as noble and elegant.

    Guess the wine: Really, the viura-based Riojas of traditional winemakers like R. Lopez de Heredia are the only wines I’ve ever tasted like this. I could also imagine a dry semillon tasting like this. As for age, it tastes quite old to me, and my guess is that it’s 10 years old.

    Rating: 91.

    July 10, 2016 - Medium goldish. Oxidative character with nutty and honey aspects and oak of excellent quality. Layered in the mouth, lighter than what you would expect, round with medium acidity and finish. Not to everyone's taste for sure.

    January 6, 2016 - Pas certain d'apprécier tout ces notes oxydatives et rancio, je préfère le Gravonia qui semble plus équilibré dans ce style.
    Nez sur le bois et le rancio, noisettes grillés et amande fumée...ça prend toute le place je trouve.
    En bouche aussi les noisettes reviennent, un peu de citrons aussi, boisé assez appuyé, finale sur la fumée!

    December 28, 2015 - Du bonbon ce vin.
    Robe dorée.
    Nez bien engageant sur le chênes de qualité, beurre, citron confit.
    Bouche avec une trame acide qui supporte bien le petit goût boisé et mielleux. Bonne longueur.
    Très bien fait. Plus racoleur que le Placet de Palacios. Bon RQP tout de même.
