Beautiful wine,paired with a filet rossini.It's really impressive when you drink a good bottle of wine,it shows you how amazing wine can be....the only downside is that it's pretty hard to get back to the average stuff!

Opened and decanted ,first sips after one hour ,tottaly oxidised with a tiny amount of fruits ,almonds in the end(86).Decided to leave it to next day and it was a good call,as the wine improved nicely oranges,coconut came through,one can sit and smell and taste this for hours as it is so complex and intriguing.It still had a lot of oxidised notes (90),so I let it sit for another day and a half.WOW!What a beautiful glass of wine!Full bodied,it seemed like a dry sauternes,extraordinary stuff,complexity at maximum level, loads os orange peels,unforgettable!(96)
Final rating:(86+90+96)/3=89,67

This was a great...a landmark for me,after a treatment that could impair my palate for a while,I tried this baby and it was marvelous and so was my palate!
This also made me realize that I do love wine,all its nuances ,the culture it brings along,travelling to that very spot where your favorite wine is made,getting to knpw that particular region that you knew nothing about but got to know better because there's great wine being made there.I stopped drinking for a while ,but kept reading about wines,producers,vintages,it's more than a pastime,it's a way of life!

Very good wine,balanced and smooth ,no sharp edges,really pleasant.Still tastes pretty young,could certainly last another 10 years very complex in primary notes,it lost some of the complexity towards the end of the bottle.Opened one hour and a half prior to drinking,finished it two hours later.

As primary as it can be,a lot better 3 hours after opening,I'm gonna forget the other bottles in my cellar and hope for some evolution as it matures...

Very good,certainly a crowd pleaser.It's amazing how the oak is nicely integrated ,fruit all over the place,the alcohol is out of balance though.

First time I had this,decanted at the restaurant ant let breathe for one hour.Amazing nose of beautiful fruit,complex but still a lot of primary notes,some oak but well integrated.
At the right temperature this was singing,could very well give it a 95,but as it warmed up a bit ,it showed the vintage and became ,for lack of a better word,watered down.Still an amazing bottle of wine,in a very special moment for me,I certainly want to have more of these,specially on better vintages.

Had to have this 'cause my last bottle was off.Bottle variation for sure,as this one was pretty good.Could score a little higher ,after three hours of opening it was really singing,but it seemed very uneven,round and silky sometimes,a little harsh and some heat at others.

Very good pinot,not a burgundy but probably one of the best there is outside that region.Nice core of dark fruit,good complexity,well done,this producer is really something!

Very nice wine,took me back to the alleys of montalcino,as it has lots of tipicity.French oak, could be more integrated but it doesn't get in the way of the fruit.Major problem is the heat,so I brought the temp down a little,but as soon as it warmed up a bit it became almost unbearable.Cooled it again,not much, and finished it off nicely.90 is the best ever for this fella,not sure if it's worth the money!

very nice,I liked this a lot,at first I drank it one hour after opening,after that I corked it and put it away.Later at night I tried it again and It was a completely different wine ,went from medium to full body, dark fruit instead of red,a beautiful showing!

Nice... the fruit is there but almost gone,resinous,some oily riesling style,hit the spot with some sushi.

So I read the TN's and got worried that this wine would be past prime.Rushed to open one today,and yes,it probably was a lot more flamboyant before,but I think it is in a great spot right now.Classy,the fruit a little subdued but very nice nonetheless.It has the tannins for another 5 years,but I don't think it will improve.Next time I get a new vintage of this I'll try it right of the bat to see if it really could be better younger.

The waitress ruined the cork and passed the wine trough a vinturi to get rid of the cork bits.I Don't care for aerators,I believe they take all of the fun out of watching the wine develop in the glass .Anyway,the wine showed a beautiful frame of tannins,nice structure that could certainly last for another decade.Dark fruit,it will improve as towards the end it showed cognac like aromas,really interesting!

This s much better than the sauvignon blanc,good stuff,fruits,some coconut,a little hollow mid-palate but a very pleasante wine.I have officially become a fan of Greywacke wines!

this was really good,I 've had it before but didn't think it would be as good as it is right now.Nice complexity wit a fair amount of fruit,a little bit of heat in te end throws it off balance,but nothing major.I believe it still has some life in it,don't think it will improve,but I did get another bottle,,,great stuff.

Started of a little disgruntled and flat,but it came through like a champ and it was very good.As redundant as it may sound,this a tokaji with all its flavors,but dry..LOL.The finish was a little short,but didn't bother me at all.

This was beautiful from the start,opened but didn't decant following a previous TN advice,let it sit for a while and it was really good,very complex,sometimes a bit hollow in the middle,but a great experience.The persistence on this baby was absolutely remarkable,I loved it.

Wow!What an excellent surprise!By the previous reviews I was expecting a modern over extracted wine,but this was a beauty!The oak is perfectly integrated,nice fruit,very pleasant and paired very well with a T-Bone steak.I will definitely keep an eye out for this wine.

Opened 2 hours before drinking,then decanted.Pretty good,seemed a little cooked (too much black olives),but overall a pretty decent bottle of a well made wine.Serve it at 16 Celsius,it would last longer,but I think it's time to drink.
