    February 10, 2016 - exceptionnel de part sa densité néanmoins fondue avec les années , arôme primaire de cassis très réussi! c'est admirable et quelle longueur en bouche! Il tiendra encore une bonne décennie pour sûr à ceux qui ont la chance de déboucher ce cru

    September 21, 2015 - Dinner with the Perrin family, very gracious and generous hosts in CdP. First experience with this wine, they went deep in the cellar to find this one. Cabernet/Syrah mix...Decanted and drank over 45 minutes

    Color showing signs of age, browning and getting clear at the edges but still good core. Nose earth, cedar, old furniture...barnyard blows off quickly. Palate was dusted dark fruits, plums, earth. Fruit is faded but still there, savory notes on the back palate

    Improved in the glass over 30 minutes, would benefit from a little air time/warming but otherwise good. Probably peaked 7+ years ago, but still enjoyable and interesting to drink.

    February 20, 2013 - Another lone straggler from the cellar. Garnet color with some clearness at the edge. A somewhat piney and woody nose leads to a medium bodied, raspberryish, and smooth earthy palate with mostly resolved tannins. The finish, however, shows signs of brett and at least to my palate some overripe qualities that some might call savory, but for me were off-putting. This brettish quality grew as it sat in the glass. Enjoyable for what it is -- a mature, hot-climate red that would have been better10 years ago but which still offers some immediate pleasure.

    October 25, 2011 - Much better, and one of the wines to drink at the moment. Touch of barnyard on the nose, withered fruits and violets. Warm and inviting, it's in balance, with no harsh edges. Justva delight to drink. Imagine it's lost a bit of fruit from it's youth, but at this age it does not need it.

    March 11, 2011 - Farewell Chertsey (Home): Sweeter-fruited nose from the off. Definately a touch of the south here - olive grove and warm summer breeze. Similar on the palate; a sense of more alcohol, ripe fruit and the syrah content coming through balanced by a savoury element towards the finish. Slightly grainy tanninscompared to the LLC & Palmer. Initially the showier and more expressive of the three, but although it evolved in glass it didn't improve in the same way that they did - this the tortoise to their hare. Lovely wine though. ****
