    March 16, 2020 - Robe rouge sang de boeuf très dense, reflets bleutés.
    Nez très expressif et presque caricaturale, confiture de mûres, réglisse noire, tabac sucré.
    En bouche, une bombe de fruits cuits, confiture de mûres, cassis, réglisse noire, maintenir la température assez basse lors de la dégustation (16C), l'alcool (15,2%) et la sucrosité demeure acceptable.
    Dans un style particulier qui ne tombe pas dans mes préférences mais tout de même bien fait.

    September 24, 2018 - Good notes of forest floor, decaying vegetation. I perceived just a bit of blackberry fruit. Cool, balanced and right on .

    April 21, 2018 - Robe bourgogne avec une évolution sur l’ambré. Arôme de pruneau, raisin, datte, boisé et fruit noir. Beau nez. Pas trop tannique, petite amertume, avec un bel équilibre et une belle rondeur. Vin bien fait et agréable en bouche. À boire maintenant.

    February 16, 2017 - Medium purple colors, strong notes of vanilla and licorice, with some hints of cardboard on the finish. Tannins, leather, plum fruit. Not your typical fruit bomb!
