July 31, 2014 - Well 92, okay it's Chave always a trill, maybe 91.
For 15 years it is quite good. Nice "astringence" (french)
not to hard. Very long. 12.5 % alcool (the norm in 1999)
Nice Ruby color.
Drink it up, can't be better!!!!

May 23, 2013 - Nice wine. Very pure nose of meat and pepper, but fresh. Doesn't feel like a 14 years old wine. Good acidic back-bone. Finish is a bit short.

March 25, 2012 - Better than the last bottle, complex, dark fruit nose, with subtle earthy/Brett notes and ripe cherry. Dusty red cherries with wet stone, macerated black cherry and hints of vanilla. More underlying acidity in this bottle, gives it a balanced and elegant finish. Drink up

October 31, 2011 - Dark purple, but a tad cloudy. Some Brett, leather saddle notes with a muted dark cherry nose. Dark fruit on the palate with very fine tannins and little acidity. Hints of mushroom and wet stone rounding out the secondary. Comes off a bit flat due to the lack of acidity, drink now.
