    My last bottle of this was fantastic. This one smells like a horse covered with band aids. Oh well

    April 11, 2016 - Last of three bottles tasted since 2014. Much softer than the last and no longer herbaceous, rather the dark red fruit is dominated by new dusty notes from entry to finish. Not unpleasantly so if you like dusty wine (I do, but where did that come from?), but we needed to move the wine to a smaller, narrower glass to punch up the CF character.

    April 3, 2016 - I am not sure what to think. In a way I like it, old world mustiness. In a way it is too musty and wet cardboardish. I don't think it is corked though, I think it is just the way the wine is. My couldn't stand it so more for me.
    Not much changed on the second day.

    June 15, 2015 - Silken, fragrant, pure and delicious. My only minor, nitpick is that I wish it had just a touch more depth. If Baudy Grezeaux had this texture it would be Cabernet Franc perfection.

    That's just me being ornery. This really is fabulous and drinking so well if so young.

    April 22, 2015 - This wine has softened considerably in the last year. Lots of inviting fruit, together with tobacco leaf and just a touch of graphite on the nose and palate. It softens further with air and seems to have lost some of the iron and green herbs of its youth. I preferred the relative firmness of the previous bottles and was quite surprised by how fruity this was. I think I'll leave my remaining half case for a while and see where it morphs to next.
