    July 6, 2016 - These 2009 Bordeauxs are rocking it for me ... seems like an excellent early drinking vintage especially at the less expensive end of the spectrum. Dark fruits, vanilla, baking spice.

    December 6, 2015 - Very good, cheapish, Bordeaux. Youthful purple-red probably indicating that this wine will be better in 3 - 5 years. On the nose: dry, plum, sweet cigar cedar box, dried meat (bresaola). Still a bit tannic but sweet leather, at the back spice (cinnamon), quite peppery. Good with food. Lingers.

    November 16, 2015 - Pas méchant mais le vin semble déjà à point, cuir, anis et chanpignons.
    On ne tardera pas avec les autres!

    June 21, 2015 - Full bodied, great value with some tobacco, coffee, med+ finishing.

    May 18, 2015 - Inky dark ruby rimmed color. Complex nose of earthy spice, berry liqueur, coffee and oak, with secondary vanilla and licorice. Not quite as intense palate - dark chocolate and dark roast, baking spice, plums, and fine sweet tannins. Delicious and good value!
