  • Dégustation comparative entre le 2004 et le 2007 ce ce vin. Les 2 vins sont carafés pendant 3 heures et bu sans nourriture. Léger dépot.
    2 beaux vins. Le 2007 a grandement souffert de la comparaison avec le 2004.
    Le 2007 est assez boisé et semble avoir une acidité basse à moyenne. Bien dans l'ensemble, à laisser vieillir.

  • Bu ce midi en succursalle, c'est un bon vin.
    Pas du même niveau que le 2004...pour le futur, n'a pas la colonne du 2004 aussi.
    Fruits noirs, boisé et vanille au nez et en bouche.
    Assez long mais un peu gommant en ce moment.

  • Big nose right out of the gate, this has piles of character, with ripe, almost roasted fruit but without any dullness or sur maturite, leather, nutmeg, soil, it's round and broad on the palate with great presence and seemingly excellent depth. It may lack some acid tension from the heat of the vintage, but I don't think there's any sun-burnt-edness here and I hope to snag a few bottles to see what happens after a long sleep.
