Very nice Riesling. A Point for me but no hurry. Good Mineral Body, spicy and not too sweet or heavy. Lacking the last bit of acid for a higher score.

It began quite thin with high acidity. After 2 h of decanting it got better. In the end it was a bit onedimensional fruity wine. Its still very young. 2bottles left. Time will tell. Next in 2024

Still young and needs time. After 4 h of decanting it came around. Red fruits, rich and on the beginning nearly too rich. But after the hours the structure grew and the herbal minty stuff showed up. Loevely ! Still bit tannic. Wait !!!! 94+

Very promising nose ! Citrus , spicy, and yellow fruirs. Good acidity but this time there was too much fat body ! For me the balance was noticeable on the horizon. I think and hope that this will improve with a lot of time ! Was my first of 6 and will give it time ! Next in 2015 ! 92++

A nice Italien. Still too young. Even after 3 h of decanting it didn t show very much. For me the acid is too upfront. I ll wait 3 - 4 years for the next.

vs 82 Talbot Started dusty which went after 6 h of decanting. More fruitdriven than the Talbot. A lovely mature bordeaux experience. No hurry

Vs 82 Grand Puy Lacoste Both on the same level. Started real dusty. But after 6 h of decanting the dust vanished and a typical old style bordeaux came through ! Leather, wet forest floor and cigar box. Smooth and round. I like it. First i thought it was nearly down the hill. After the 6 h i wonder how long this will last ? Another 10 y easily !!

A love janasse ! Mostly ! 05 and 07 are so good. But this was on the very limit of too much. Slightly pruny and dark. Misses the fun and the balance. Dull bottle ? Lers check ! 90 ???
