    October 12, 2019 - Wine Tasting Group - No Theme - Oct. 12, 2019 (Classic): Kirsch aromas with red and black cherries, herbs and garrigue. Ripe blackberries and some blueberries on the palate, with kirsch, mild garrigue, and a hint of dark chocolate. Acids are on the lower side. This tasted younger and beefier than the 2000 Usseglio.

    May 23, 2019 - 2016 CdP (and some other wines over dinner) (NY Racquet and Tennis Club): Yep - definitely a fan of this wine. Perhaps contender for me as WOTN although part of that is we had some trouble with other bottles. This was delicious. Well structured. Well aged although lots of life left (and actually I think it might benefit from some more years). Great fruit, great spice. I really enjoyed it.

    May 20, 2019 - P&p, powerful nose but a nice mature mouthfeel, classical cdp, masculine, beef blood, hard to follow after the 3 burgundies - 76 Ampeau Santenots, 96 Ampeau Santenots & 12 Mortet Gevrey 1er Cru

    December 24, 2018 - Upon opening lots of iron and beefblood here; cool, calm and collected no signs iof aging, at twenty years, this is still a quite young wine with primary fruit intact. A Bordeaux-lovers neuf, this one, classy wine.
