  • Lovely development towards bayleaf, allspice, and meat soup. Smooth tannins, with a peppery, firmly mineral structure. Lovely now, should keep for another five.

  • Cranberries and pepper with a bit of game on the nose. Nice acidity and balance. Was looking for a bit more funk/iron/olive notes I picked up on the 2011 recently. Light/medium body with sweet tannins. Drinking well now, not sure how much longer I would hold.

  • Oeil : très légère trace d'évolution à la couleur, sinon un dépôt bien présent dans la bouteille, forte viscosité en parois, opacité 6/10
    Nez : projection 3/10 à l'ouverture, a progressé jusqu'à 5/10 après 60 minutes d'ouverture, frais, cacao, poivre long, boisé élégant et passablement fondu, touche de fumée, support végétal, épices douces, légère touche florale, très très beau nez
    Bouche : sec, ample, acidité rafraîchissante, tanins encore charnus, qui ne sont plus asséchants, fins, amertume moyenne, persistance moyenne-longue, rétro fruitée, fumée, florale, épicée, végétale
    Conclusion : excellent, en pleine forme, belle fraîcheur, superbe équilibre d'ensemble, excellent bon compagnon de repas, nous reverrons la dernière en 2017.
    Observations complémentaires : dépôt notable en parois (bouteille couchée depuis un bail); bouchon en absolument parfaite condition.

  • Still good structure left in this baby. Good fruit as well. Nice with food.
    Drink now or hold for up to two more years.

  • Tar and black fruit with smoke, spice, and white pepper on the nose. Bright acidity and faded tannins round out this wine. Probably should have drunk this two years ago...
