    June 8, 2019 - good long cork, perfect level, colour still relatively youthful, very little brown at rim, nose fresh, lifted, mid-weight, cabernet dominant, quite fine, very nice, clearly northern left-bank, palate also of mid-weight, “lean and mean” but not in a negative sense, very dry, good length, spiciness to upper back palate, well made, good wine for the limitations of the vintage, true to its character, not what one would serve to convince a beginner in Bordeaux but for those who love the style, character and structure of Bordeaux and St Estephe in particular this is still a real pleasure to drink, enjoyed this and have no regrets I have a few more, good QPR

    October 5, 2018 - Mature, medium bodied and showing a distinctive, olive, leaf, herb and cedar accent to the bright red berries, the wine is ready to go.

    December 24, 2015 - 아직도 단단하다는 느낌, 향은 은은한 과일향, 색은 검붉지만 옅었으며, 팔럿에서 니끼는 타린감은 시간이 흐를수록 입안가득 조여주는, 늦은 가을 오래도록 읽지않은 감을 오래도록 씹었을 때와 같은 니낌. 셀러의 2012는 오래도록 묵혀야겠다는 생각

    December 9, 2015 - Nice cigar box and leather character, just what I was hoping for.

    Very dry, touch green, in line with the vintage.
