    December 28, 2014 - Dark sweet fruit with low acidity and a smooth finish. The wine never quite opened over a 1-2 hour decant. Needs a good 2-3 hour decant or better wait 2-3 years before drinking.

    December 1, 2014 - Beautiful bouquet with dark berry fruits, garrigue, chocolate, tobacco and leather. On the palate a beautiful balance between acidity and sweetness, soft and ripe tannin as well as a touch of laurel. Mature and a great beauty now and definitely the next few years. Would like to taste again in 2018 to see if there is potential for more. Not sure about this, because at this moment everything already perfectly falls into place. 92 – 93

    October 31, 2014 - Deep raspberry color with purple core. Sweet nose with floral and blue fruit. Palate was impeccably balanced with firm tannins and a seamless transition to a lingering finish. Blue fruit, soft pine, lychee palate. Excellent wine!

    October 26, 2014 - Another fantastic CDP.
    Black colored with a nose full of black berry fruit, garrigue, ink, licorice and a hint of violet. Palate is full bodied with matching acidity, firm tannins (as almost all 2005 CDPs I have tasted), full flavor, velvety mouthfeel and long finish. Superb wine!

    August 14, 2014 - Dunkles purpurrot; an der Nase komplexes, tiefes Aromenspiel von Bitterschokolade, Kirsch- und Beerenkompott, Würznoten; am Gaumen vollmundig, Massen an feinem, fast süßlichem Tannin, reichlich Säure, langer Abgang; vollreifer Jahrgang, leicht alkohollastig
