Community Tasting Note

  • Jeff Leve wrote: 98 points

    May 3, 2018 - Just a super wine, you can smell this from across the room. Still young, there is volume, complexity, intensity, layers of fruits, silky tannins and a finish that does quit until the layers of fruit have done their job. This is a stunner. Because it is so good, you can drink it young, but if you have the patience to wait another decade, this will really be a knock out!

  • Jeff Leve commented:

    11/13/19, 8:22 AM - Different styles. Best to compare my tasting notes... They are both current.

  • Jeff Leve commented:

    11/13/19, 8:42 AM - By the way, do you read my site? You can easily find both those vintages next to each other, making them easy to compare.

    11/13/19, 9:07 AM - I do. Really enjoy it and thanks for all the efforts. We have similar tastes perhaps. Whilst we are talking. Which 2 or 3 absolute value and great qpr bdx or Rhône would you recommend for drinking now and over the short to mid term?

  • Jeff Leve commented:

    11/13/19, 9:39 AM - Thanks for the nice words. That's really far too broad a question. I would not know where to start. Sorry :(
