    October 1, 2016 - Took a bit of coaxing but after a few hours the nose is opening - very pure, mineral, fresh berry on the nose - packs an acidic punch - great food wine but fruit seems just a tad muted. Either needs a bit more time to open or a few more years in the cellar - very enjoyable though.

    September 9, 2016 - Popped and poured; three of us spent ninety minutes with it over a meal. Good translucent red color, medium to light body Mature, very nice, soft, slightly sweet red fruit, somewhat subdued palate. A feminine and lovely Burgundy. Share it with women. Drink soon.

    May 30, 2016 - Showing beautifully. Lots of cranberries, wet earth, leafy notes, & violets. Palate was a nice combination of airiness and concentration of florals and fruit. Yum city.

    March 8, 2016 - Popped and poured; followed over three days (VV'd). Day Three was best. Soft red fruit, subtle sweetness, quietly delicious.

    January 9, 2016 - One note, a little clunky even. Not a great showing on this night.
