    September 25, 2014 - Grands châteaux bordelais, millésimes difficile. (restautant Chez Christophe): Un nez un peu fumé, avec du poivron, des épices (paprika!), le plus complexe de la soirée. La bouche est élégante, avec davantage de fruit et de rondeur que les autres, mais il reste tout de même dans un style austère. Un vin d'un bel équilibre et une finale en finesse, charmante, avec une certaine complexité. 92 pts

    May 25, 2013 - Tasted blind: Intensive red color. Red berries and hints of leather and Earl. Grey tea. The wine has a nice sweetness and is very present, elegant and balanced. A beautifully aged wine that its at a wonderful drinking stage now. This is my best bottle so far.

    In the series of the Angelus 94, Figeac 90, and Leoville Las Cases 1998 my favorite wine.

    October 4, 2012 - Intensive red. Barn, leather, and rasberry flavor with a hint of coffee. Very smooth, tannic and well integrated acid. Plum, rasperry. Long in the finish. Drink throgh 2030

    May 27, 2012 - Fill into neck. Allowed to breathe in bottle two hours before serving. Clear medium ruby-blood color with brick red at the rim. Bouquet of leafy blackberries, tobacco, leather, graphite, hint of green bell pepper. Similar on the palate, medium body, silky and seamless, with excellent balance. Great success for the vintage.

    April 17, 2012 - A dark wine with ruby red rims, almost showing no age on the eye. The aromas are quite intense but most importantly very memorable. There's an initial burst of sweet tobacco, leather, blackberries, sour cherries, cassis, violets, cocoa powder, smoke, cedar, and crushed stones. As the wine enters the palate it is quite dense but not heavy. It is flavor intense with a rich array of sweet red and black fruits on the attack, following into a dark chocolate meets espresso mid-palate, with a long finish filled with a slight hint of mint and mineral notes. A wine with great structure, intensity of flavors, refreshing acidity, however it lacks balance between the fruit and acidity.

    (Chateau Cheval Blanc St Emilion) Very dense, dark colour. A lovely nose, full of maturing, slightly roasted fruit, but also lots of burnt-toffee toasted oak. A really lovely palate! Big, sweet, earthy and textured. Meaty. Great concentration. Structured, with ripe tannin. Sweet fruit and some oak here too. This is one set for the cellar in order to show its best. Needs five years.
