    June 21, 2019 - Perhaps past it’s prime, or maybe it never reached its prime. Astringent. Anise with isopropyl alcohol zing to it. Glad I only had one bottle.

    February 22, 2018 - This wine was extremely closed, austere, almost repellent at the beginning. No fruit whatsoever, at best some Liquorice. Strong reduction notes, at first I thought the bottle was flawed. However the cork looked like the wine was bottled yesterday.

    After two hours of decanting, it started to open very timidly. After 3 hours the wine still improved, now started to show beautiful complex fruit and great length but no signs of aging, beside already nicely integrated tannins. A wonderful warm-year left-bank Bordeaux. And it continued to improve slightly.

    I think it can be drunken now, but it will have a lot more to offer in a few years time. For a wine that, in 2018, needs 3 hours to start opening 2015-2020 drinking window is way to early in my opinion and 2018-2025 is more realistic, maybe even more. Not because it is so tannic, but because it is so reductive still.

    November 18, 2017 - Good year, 2010. Bourdeaux wine with power. Dark berries, vanilla, oak, leather, with a spicey feel. Nice palete with a fruity attack in the start, firm tannins, complex with long aftertaste. Love this one!!

    September 20, 2016 - Yes, this all very nice and good for a minor St Julien. Good mix of fruit and dust. Graphite and blackberry. Grippy tannins. No complexity as such. Medium. Very pleasing. Though overpriced by £5 at £25. Drink now I'd say. 89-90

    January 18, 2016 - Weekly tasting group #200; Merlot dominated Bordeaux 2009 (@ RvD): Beautiful bouquet with red and dark forest fruits, herbs, oaky flavors and vanilla. The same impressions on the palate, some chocolate, a bit herbaceous, a touch of sweetness and also firm acidity, slightly sticky tannin and some bitterness. Improves in the glass with some more air. In the tasting group some preferred the 2009 above the 2010. And although I score the wines the same, I had a slight preference for the 2010. Give the wine a few more years of ageing. 88 - 89
