    January 5, 2016 - Thin and acidic - not to my taste and a poor offering really

    December 24, 2015 - @Fred_Lund: I doubt that recent vintages will turn out as classic as this. Drinkability level expert.

    May 9, 2015 - Last glass from a bottle that was opened the previous evening. Very fresh fruit and good spices and truffles. Improves with 10 minutes in the glass.

    March 5, 2015 - Dark red with a nose of vanilla, toast and game. A full bodied fruit bomb that is concentrated and powerful. Lovely flavours of cranberries and blackberries. Still quite tannic and yet to develop much secondary flavours so confident of having a long life ahead. Quite surprisingly this is as 'old' as 2001 as it comes across much younger. A step up from the Grand Cru Classe's I had the week before (La Tour Figeac 09 and Corbin 09) as felt this had more depth and concentration.

    January 14, 2014 - Beau claret frais et terreux avec encore pas mal de vie.
    Le nez est beau, beaucoup de fruits rouges avec une pointe de boisé et de terre.
    En bouche, encore assez ample et fruité, des mures et du graphites avec de beaux tannins fins et une belles acidité.
    Finale de bonne longueur.
