    August 15, 2021 - Despite being outside the drinking window, it was still wonderfully balanced, had fruit remaining to have a bright perform and a smooth texture. Not quite as complex as older Bordeaux’s can be, but very ice. Drank with John Rav.

    April 24, 2021 - Still a little life. A bit muddy and colour fading rapidly now. Nose was a little reminiscent of French Polish but not in a volatile way. Just deep and nutty. Maybe a bit of leather and tobacco in there too. Palate was still full and now very soft and easy. Finish was quite short but still not drying. I was pleasantly surprised.

    November 15, 2020 - in a great spot and drinking well
    went so well with the gnocchi and corvina at Vie
    felt like the last supper before the politicians shut everything down

    September 25, 2020 - The 1995 Clos du Marquis is an enjoyable, rustic wine probably at its apogee now. The wild raspberry, walnut, lapsang souchong, and leather nose is wonderful, but the palate is slightly angular and still loaded with wooly tannin. To some extent, that’s the year. But I wouldn’t wait for the tannin to mellow before consuming these because that beautiful nose will be gone.

    September 12, 2020 - With slow braised shoulder of lamb. Silky, glossy, fresh, not tired at all. Not sure this was past its best, but also didn't feel that there was very much there - a very good complement to the food but so reserved a partner it seemed to lack any presence of its own.
