Full bodied, nice sweetness. I prefer this to drink this type of wine quite cold (fridge temperature) as otherwise it feels flabby. high alcohol 14.2% but well integrated. Drink now

Wow, was a surprise how well it drinks right now. In this phase outperformed the Krug 2004 in the glass next to it.

Disgorged October 2012

Chateau botteling with HS Fill Level - Mature red with some brick color at the edges. Nose of leather, raspberry marmelade and earthy notes. Wine had still some nice fruit left, good backbone and nice sweetness. There is still some life left and no rush to drink. 94/100. P.S: not a top bottle as the one I had 2 years ago was much „fresher“.

Still too young. Needs some time to open up. Potential is certainly here

Super backward. Give it at least another decade to fully open up. Great potential is there.

Now starting to open up for a long and hedonistic drinking window. Give it a good decant and serve it out of big glasses. Despite the 14.6% Alc. quite balanced.

- Brick color with medium forming legs - Quite nice. Now fully mature but it benefits from a 1-2 hour decant.

Fully mature. Sweet Portwine notes. Alcohol very present. Too modern and sweet. Unbalanced. Poor bottle as I have liked this wine better in the past. 89/100

- Yellow gold color with medium pearls. It's balanced with a medium body. Round texture with a long finish - SImply stunning. Oxidative but still very fresh bubbles. Precise and long. Tasted next to the Jacquesson 1995 DT which was even better. Drink now as it is fully mature

Still too young. Decant or better wait another 5 years as tannins are not yet integrated. 91/100+

Nice Champagne. Elegant, precise and wonderful balance. Missing a bit complexity, power and length for a 100% PN. Still solid and may improve in a few years time 91/ 100+

Out of Magnum: Simply stunning. So fresh and precise. Long life ahead out of perfect Magnums like the one I tasted. How good was it? To be honest...The DomP 2002 next to it had a really tough stance...

Krug 166ed, Id 416035, Disgorged in autumn 2016 with base 2010 and oldest wines from 1998.

Similar impression than a few months ago. Nose is typical Krug, dark bread, nuts, ripe lemon. Powerful, long and complex at the same time very elegant and precise. Body gained in weight and the wine starts to open up. Very nice @ 93/100+

Lovely wine. Very smooth and balanced but already surprisingly mature. Initially I thought about decanting but then decided on PnP which was the right choice. Drink now over the next decade

Quite a mature bottle with lots of tertiary aromas. Likely a too warm stored bottle.

Salmon color. Nose of strawberries and rosehips. Quite some power. Nice precise Pinot Driven Rosé. Last vintage with base 2012. afterwards Suenen will 100% turn to BdB.

Expected more from the vintage. The 1983 and the 1985 Cheval Blancs were the better wines and clearly the better values

Golden color. Nose is quite oxidative, sweet apples, brioche and crushed stone. Very long and complex but at the same time I expected more freshness and greatness from the wine. Solid but I prefer other BdB such as Comtes de Champagne and Salon much more. This bottle was disgorged April 2013. I do not think this will benefit from further aging
