    October 11, 2020 - From Coravin. Cream, vanilla, orange marmalade, sweet spice, a little baked apple and, with time, a touch of apricot and marzipan. More caramel with luscious levels of sweetness on the palate before a lick of medium plus intensity acidity arrives to clean things up leaving marmalade, apricot conserve, vanilla, sweet spices and a fair amount of tannic burr on the mid palate. All persist long. Yum.

    October 10, 2020 - A none of sweet honey and some citrus, golden in color. A light to medium bodied desert wine, with honey, orange, almond and acidity on finish, a good value. www.winelx.com

    August 14, 2020 - Rarement décu par ce Château, il ivre encore
    la marchandise ici.
    Belle équilibre même si le sucre est bien présent,
    l'acidité vient remettre le tout à sa place.
    Pêches, miel, fleurs et caramel salé avec une pointe d'herbes.
    Assez long et décadent.
    Superbe.

    June 22, 2020 - Grand Bordeaux 2010 ten years on tasting; 6/21/2020-6/22/2020 (Fribourg): Big Bordeaux 2010 2-day horizontal hosted by a private collector. My 3 main takeaways from the vintage were 1) more frequent perception of heat, 2) a slightly stronger left bank and a less consistent right bank, 3) while in general it is still too early to pop the 2010s, wine selection is key as some appear to be in decline already, especially on the right bank. The top wines were Mouton (99), Margaux (98) and VCC (98). The biggest positive surprise was Clos Manou (95). Biggest disappointment was Pape Clement (86). More details and complete tasting overview included in the tasting story.

    Tasting note:
    Surprisingly fresh with green herbs, candid fruit, apricot and decent freshness. A more interesting nose than the Rieussec 2015 next to it, but loses on intensity and overall push.

    April 10, 2020 - I've had this in my refrigerator for the past month or so, drinking a little bit at a time. It has hardly changed over that time, a testament to its ageability. Honey, flowers, peaches, and stone fruit all stand out in the nose and the palate. A very good, very balanced wine. Plenty of sweetness but also some acidity to help balance it out. Some botrytis flavor, and I expect that to become a bit more pronounced with more age.
