    January 2, 2019 - Well, I couldn’t wait 4 years since the last bottle but I got as far as 19 months. This is indeed opening up more and although still plenty of tannins the fruit is coming more to the fore. Nice dark cherry and menthol flavors, with finish of tannins and nice acidity. I still think this is years out from optimal drinking but it is quite tasty now and certainly drinkable now. I bet it gets better though.

    December 4, 2017 - Still drinking well but I am afraid it has peaked as the aromas and flavors have decreased a bit.

    May 30, 2017 - Just starting to open a bit. Still deeply tannic and closed, but some cassis and syrupy fruit now edging through. Still a longer term keeper, but at least some progression now. Keep 4+ years

    May 13, 2017 - This is why we love this wine! Bought for $15, aged for 8 years, and now's it's worthy of a 90!

    December 31, 2016 - Very very firm and still tannic. Not sure what to think of this. I will wait for several years on the last couple bottles to see where this goes.

    (Georges Dubeouf Jean Descombes Morgon) #3; COLOR-medium/dark; NOSE-flowers and fruit; violet and strawberry; like a college girls dorm room; PALATE-it's got that brightness; great weight on the mid-palate; this is a great wine; bright, fresh; for $15 bones, this is a screaming value; moderate tannin; relatively bright acidity with beautiful mid-palate richness; and a great grip; GV-89+
