    February 25, 2013 - While it has evolved, the reduction is still there and heavily so and personally this is not a wine that I can consider as drinkable. Light gold in color with on the nose blue cheese, mold and toasted brioche and much of the same on the palate along bitter notes of parsil and cilantro, with very low acid and a long finish.

    July 15, 2012 - Beautiful and complex bouquet with smoke, toast and caramel. On the palate minerals, tart lime, stone fruits and yellow fruits. See also previous mote.

    June 7, 2012 - unique gasoil aromas and flavors, odd vintage - but very special
    (like an old Riesling)

    April 13, 2012 - This is something special. The bouquet is loaded with toasted oak and minerals, flint stone and almost volcanic impressions. Same on the palate. Also concentrated and ok acidity. At first a bit difficult, but with more airtime and a little higher temperature the wine showed more nuances. Gives the impression of the more luxurious Burgundy wines. I guess around 2014 or 2015 this can be a great wine. 91+

    June 25, 2010 - golden color, typical fruity qualitative aroma, oily-silky in taste, mineral, long after-taste, balanced and structured. come il faut.
