    February 17, 2017 - Quite decent. Still holding on, getting fuller and richer with time. Black cherry and licorice with some spice in mid palate. Good with meats and heavy pasta. Found 2003 to be better than the 2000.

    May 14, 2016 - Similar to last note but seems more fuller and richer than last bottle, good fruit, good balance and very smooth with soft tannins on the finish. Better than last bottle a year ago.

    October 17, 2015 - Very nice wine, great bouquet, good balance but lots of fruit, long finish, enjoyed with veal loin chops, drank with Bellefont Belcier, which was less fruity and earthier, would drink again.

    June 7, 2015 - Medium weight with soft tannins on the finish. Some fruits, dried currants and leather but very restrained. Easy drinking but not complex.
