Lovely bordeaux. Slightly mature with some tannin left. After 1,5 h of decanting it showed vwry round, vwry medoc, leather, silky and still something to chew. Has many years left !!! May improve ???

Too young ! Needs air. Right after opening the glas was dull of babyfat. With more time the structure came through and it became lighter with more tension. 93+

Jumped out of the glas. Pnp ! This is young but singing. Warm and cosy in the mouth. Very fine tannin give a grippy backbone. Waves of fruit and leather coating your palate. This will became a wonderful wine. 95+

Thin, watery and short. Not what we were looking for when opening a Grand Cru. Get a bit better with time. But stayed on a low level.

100% Cinsault ! Very light in color. But a fine smooth cool flavour stays for quite a while on the tongue. This is understatement in south africa. Good acid. Good qfp !!!

89 vs 90. Same level. Nose was better and more open than 90. Needed vwry much air. Gained more and more freshness . With time it became more complex and balance. Overall a great wine missing a bit more fun in the glass. This is old school !!! Has many times left.

Give it 2 h of air and the show begins. Real bordeaux. Dark fruits, herbal minty stuff, soft but a youthful tannic backbone. In its early window. No shame to try one. Room for improvement. 94+

Liquid fruit drops ! The cheap ones ! A bit freshness, little acid and length. But most of all : Onedimensional Fruit drops. Concentrated , slightly sweet and dropsy . Not my wine ! Was my first 100 % semillon. Maybe the last ???

Citrus !!!! Very fresh but lacking a bit body and minerality for a higher score. Quite onedimensional even after 3 h of decanting. Also quite short.
