    August 28, 2016 - Light red with signs of maturity. This is all dust and faded red fruits on the nose. Light weight, resounding soil, decayed red fruit, plum skin, and a squeeze of citrus. At first I thought it was going to be soft with underlying clay richness, but after an hour or so, the acidity appeared in a Savigny sort of way without being quite as brambly or brusque. This has matured beautifully over the past few years and has lovely balance and poise; I suppose it could go on for another couple of years and resolve itself even a tad more, but beyond that, I wonder if the strong terroir will overtake the increasingly fragile fruit.

    April 10, 2016 - Drank over two nights. 1st: very pale red and clear, with lean, delicate red fruits and spice. Light bodied, shows better with food, and overall much more open than the bottle we had one year ago. As L-C. (whose bottle seemed identical to ours), it shows no signs of age. 2nd night: the first thing we noticed was the color--it looked darker in the glass, perfectly medium bodied and it felt that way on the palate, too. There, same flavors as the night before but no longer lean. Rather, larger, more expansive, and joined by a welcome, satisfying mushroom-earthiness. There's still a lot of upside potential here.

    April 8, 2016 - Clear, light garnet red with slight brick rim. However, there's nothing aged about the nose, it attacks with high toned fresh red fruit, a little sous-bois, a touch spiciness, some floral note. In the mouth, this is fluid, light bodied, but nowhere rustic. Instead, there is good concentration and grippy to velvety tannins. Very good, nearly mineral finish. Amazing how this developed over the past years and how the fruit is suddenly coming out again. I'd say it's still not at it's peak. Elegant. Very good indeed.

    March 28, 2016 - Drinking well now but continued to evolve over the course of dinner.

    Initially, savory meats, earth and spice greet you on the nose and set the expectation of a big wine, however, while tannins are still present which should allow it to evolve for some time the body falls somewhere in the light to medium range.

    As dinner progressed the wine continued to open up, es pressing some deeper fruits of dried black cherry, licorice, raspberry and a subtle floral undertone on the finish. The wine paired well with pork and as others have stated may be best as a food wine as opposed to on its own.

    All in all an enjoyable wine which I would choose again should the opportunity present itself.

    December 2, 2015 - Spectacularly unexpected brilliance here through and through from its crystal clear appearance through to its shifting aromas. I was surprised how open this is already - Meaty, perfumed and feral all at the same time - this has a real depth and elegance to it, with some dark cherry and grilled meat action going on. Tannins are perfect here, with a defined, linear structure that works beautifully with the fruit, not one thing gets in the way of the other. Excellent.
