    October 3, 2021 - In very good condition indeed. Fully mature but not past it. Understated sweet blackcurrant and plum fruit still present on the palate, against a background of cigar box and dead leaves. More extensive note not taken; it complemented duck confit perfectly.

    April 23, 2021 - Fantastisk doft direkt, stall och sårskorpa, rosor och bläck. Efter ett tag kommer lite sötare röd frukt fram tillsammans med läder och lite rök.
    Även i munnen är det rätt söt mogen frukt men förvånansvärt låg syra. Tanninerna är obefintliga och det är verkligen en njutning att dricka även om jag tycker den hamnar i skymundan bakom La Fleur Petrus.

    July 12, 2020 - Very evolved nose, a little bit maderized, very gamey and leather... Very light and totally integrated tannin, gamey, leather, soy sauce, very nice!

    January 14, 2020 - Quelle belle surprise. Nez cuir, poivron. En bouche, ample, rond sur une longue finale. Tiens tête à Pavis, Pape Clément, Gazin également des 82.

    November 29, 2019 - From magnum. Still very fruit forward for it's age, good color, and well balanced. Drinking relatively young for an 82 and will likely benefit from a bit more time, at least for magnums and other large formats.
