    March 25, 2017 - 125ml sampler machine poor @ Vagabond, Nova Victoria, London.
    Still very young and albeit not austere or closed still only shows hints of the wine this can be or at least what one would expect. Light herbs de province on the nose, light fruited. On the palate it is round and welcoming but also a bit blunt and uninspiring. Not over done or in anyway pushed this shows the vintage we felt quite well. 88-89 and drink from now but better wait

    March 12, 2017 - Open for 1 1/2 hour before. Little closed and unbalanced at some points

    February 25, 2017 - Very pleased with this. Don't really buy or drink clos does papes after '01 due to the shift towards the ripe and modern style, but this is very good. Fairly elegant, with the body of a mid-weight California Pinot. The flavor profile actually isn't that far off either, with the addition of a bit of animale funk. Happy to have a case at a cheap price and look forward to drinking in the coming years.

    February 11, 2017 - Garrigue, kirsch, black cherry. Continues to evolve after opening. Very enjoyable. 6 bottles with family birthday dinner.

    December 31, 2016 - Candied aroma, spice decent acid. Probably could have given it some time to air before drinking but still excellent
