    July 24, 2020 - Its usual dependable self. Pale mid garnet, very fragrant, all sous bois, spice and a touch of orange peel. Cool and elegant on the palate with good line and length. All too drinkable. Puts on weight and sweetness after being open a couple of hours, and feels much more in line with being a 2010. ****

    April 4, 2020 - Thought I had popped the chaffots but it was this. I had a bottle 3 years ago that I loved. This one was a bit DOA. Vegetable, spritzy, high acid. Thin, red fruited, and Seemed over the hill. I did kill it in one night though and my other bottle was drank over a series of days, so maybe I'll blame coronavirus for this relatively poor showing.

    December 24, 2019 - Tasted over 1 hr and day 2
    -med dark red
    -generously expressive funk reduction ripe dark fruits rhubarb cinnamon
    -barely med acidity, med weight and concentration darker ripe pinot fruit with a mineral bitter ridge though without much complexity falls a bit flat, finishes with some wood notes and slightly dried out med tannins; creamy top note and better balance on day 2
    -this is OK but lacks the energy of the vintage and seems a bit disjointed at this stage; better on day 2 so this may just need some more time

    June 4, 2019 - JB @ Noizé (Noizé, London): Blind. A lovely sweetness of fruit here allied with a lightness of style. Mid to pale ruby with a touch of garnet at the rim. Lovely Ponsotesque sweet-fruited etherealness here. Long and nuanced but light on its feet. Persistent too. Really lovely. ****

    December 25, 2018 - Opened and left in bottle for 90 mins. Clear, rust-tinged red color. Initially a bit of sulfur on the nose that seems to blow off. Light red fruits and some forest floor. Tasted in line with nose. Light on the palate. Tannins fully integrated and didn’t seem to have much acid to hold out. Maybe me but this a bit underwhelming...have a couple more and seems they should be drunk soon.
