Community Tasting Note

  • Harrie Likes this wine: 91 points

    December 11, 2020 - Took its time to open up: two hours of air do make sense. Good wine but a bit stern. I did expect somewhat more.

    I’ve only just begun touching the 2009’s (its high on the ready-to-drink list, which guides my priorities) but there the cellar pipeline is full.

    A few bottles of 04 and 06 are still there and will be kept for some serious benchmarking with friends. If you can spare a few years, continue watching this space.
