    August 6, 2017 - Well balanced, nice aroma and flavour, however, seemed to have slightly flat fruit.

    January 17, 2017 - Coffee, Asian spices, minerals, slight toasted Vanilla oak ... keeps on changing over the course of 1.5 hours in decanter. Decent finishing and great value. Keep 3-5 years or with one hour decant. (Alan's bottle)

    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!
