    December 16, 2013 - Colore molto scarico ma vivo, con sfumature aranciate. Naso di camino spento, tabacco, fruttini rossi. Tutto molto delicato ed elegante. Bocca velluttata, quasi sussurrata, ma bella viva grazie all'acidità guizzante.

    June 1, 2013 - perfectly kept after 40 years, with all its flavor, power and pleasure

    June 1, 2013 - well kept; still young at heart; very soft tanine; pleasant, but solid and complex, perfect example of a typical St Emilion

    July 20, 2012 - Pure elegance here. Fine light red color.

    Quite fragrant nose of tea, crushed strawberries, licorice, cedar. On the palate, tea and diluted strawberry extract. Perhaps a hint of pain grille, a touch (just a bit) of green pepper. So so fine, light and elegant. Seamless balance, fine persistent finish.

    Most compelling impression here is the absolute purity of and fineness of the fruit and the seamless balance. Much more enjoyable to drink than the 95 Haut Brion tasted last night, which is showing well but just beginning to stretch its legs (wait a good 10 years on that one).

    August 18, 2010 - Fairly light in color for a bordeaux, earthy nose with lots of tobacco. Took a while to open up, but once it did, became an amazing soft and beautiful wine, absolute elegance.

    Miss you dad, but you're still taking good care of use.
