    October 5, 2021 - This is absolutely the opposite of the silicone boob job in so many garage wines, and this is neither a liquefied version of a dark chocolate cereal bar. Instead this is a true hedonist dream. Beautiful perfumes of red berries, plums and tobacco leaves are followed by a silky, refined and opulent mouthfeel...this is liquid velvet carried by a fresh backbone of elegant tannins. The finish is fresh and soft, persisting gently in the mouth. It is a very fine wine of grace and refinement yet with a strong personality, and well ahead of its time. Chapeau to Francois Mitjaville for this gem in such a bad vintage!

    September 4, 2021 - Party at YB's Pine Close. Drank in Grassl 1855.
    Apearance is clear, medium intensity, ruby colour with thin garnet rim. Legs.
    Nose is clean, medium+ intensity, with aromas of ripe cherries, ripe plums, licorice, coffee. Developed.
    On the palate, dry, high acidity, medium+ alcohol (13.5%), smooth rounded integrated high tannins, full body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of blackberries, ripe black cherries, ripe black plums, sweet earth, integrated oak spices, bitter coffeebean, dark licorice. Long finish.
    Very good quality. Excellent Right Bank drinking so well now. Suprisingly good for an off vintage. Ripe yet elegant. Time to drink up and enjoy.

    August 8, 2021 - Really nice wine - smooth, fruit, balance and good length. Sweet spot now and 1-2 more years I guess. Elegant Bordeaux!

    February 7, 2021 - Very nice bouquet, still a lot of gentle tannins. Decanted appr 2 hours. Very approachable. Really delivered. However, drink now do not wait.
