  • Mise château, très haute épaule. Au début il m'a fait un peu peur, au bout de trois heures d'aération, il avait dans le verre une robe encore très brune et une odeur mentholée et herbacée... mais quelque temps dans le verre et une ou deux heures de plus d'aération... et la merveille a commencée à se révéler. Grande minéralité et pureté de fond. Gras, corsé, opulent, soyeux... vraiment majestueux. Pour les goûts, il y a de tout : réglisse, menthe, fumé, cherry, mûre, cassis, framboise, clou de girofle, cèdre, venaison, lardé, etc.
    Très bonne mâche et longue finale.
    La robe devient presque rubis avec l'oxygénation, c'est la première fois que je vois cela de façon si nette...
    Nez époustoufflant en bouteille, après six heures...
    Tout le meilleur, le condensé, de la Nature dans un vin... grandiose !

  • Bottle was high shoulder and the cork was sealed with wax. The cork broke but we managed to take out the second part in one piece. The wine was decanted for 3 hours. The colour was surprisingly dark red with only a hint of brownish. On the bouquet mushrooms and wood dominated, the palate was powerful with still present tannins. For the age, it surprisingly showed also a hint of red currant and herbs. Mid to long finish. This was a beautiful bottle. I wish, I had one more bottle.

  • It's a remarkably vibrant, bright colour that's far more youthful than it should be. What a glorious nose! It's difficult to write a note on the nose, as it's changing all the time. A lovely savoury character. Pure hedonism in a glass on the nose.
    Thank heavens it doesn't disappoint on the palate: really lovely and mature. Very gentle and restrained, with some sweetness, perhaps from a touch of VA. Gravelly galangal notes. The palate doesn't quite live up to the nose, but it is a superb wine.

  • (Danish bottling by George Hestle) Dark red with clear browning at the rim. Very jammy on the nose with added scents of tobacco and fall leaves. Oily and fat in texture. Wonderful in taste on a brown sugar poured over yoghurt vibe, pefectly mature and seductive and elegant. Excellent structure and definition coupled with a long, pleasant aftertaste. Yum.
