    August 13, 2021 - A well crafted wine that is drinking well, perhaps a few more years could help it some more. Missing some layers of complexity found in other similarly priced wine, not a great QPR. I recommend giving it some air, we gave it at least an hour besides our initial tasting. On the nose, earth, blackberries, hints of spice. On the palate, nicely structured wine as others have noted. Finish is fairly long. A good wine overall but nothing incredible.

    May 10, 2021 - A great pleasure with roundness, power, lots of fruit and earthy notes. Good length. I doubt if time will give more to this gorgeous wine, I do hope so. In that case 94-95 is possible. Much improved compared to 5 years ago.

    April 22, 2021 - Way too young and very tight. Deep dark ruby color. Decanted and aerated for 2 hours. Masculine nose of leather, earth, blackberries and cassis, and peppery spice. Powerful on the palate, solid structure but again very tightly wound, finishes long and tannic. To retry in 5 years at least.

    February 13, 2021 - Clear medium ruby/gold; clean medium nose of ripe plums, toast and cassis; dry; high acidity; medium plus tannins; high alcohol; medium body; pronounced flavour intensity; palate is tarter with addition of cocoa and bright anise; long finish; great concentration but disappointing nose; tertiary hasn’t really started to show - best to leave this in the cellar for another 5 years

    October 25, 2020 - A marvellous, concentrated and complex wine. Took a good 2 hours to open up, which is not unexpected. Some Margaux character on the nose, but overall a bit reticent. Sublime taste though.

    Would love to try this in 20 years- it will certainly go the distance.
