    March 29, 2013 - Definitely not the Merlot you're used to. If you can get over the fact that it plays more like Burgundy or Loire, it's actually quite nice and very food friendly, and will drink well for another 5 years.

    August 24, 2011 - Fruit rouge un peu discret à l'ouverture. Bu sur plus de 3 heures il s'est ouvert légèrement. Bonne acidité, équilibre correct mais un peu mince.
