    August 2, 2019 - Mature plumes Good oak leather and lots of coffee at first
    Also some tertiere multed stuff that went away
    Remains is a terrific mature wine with potential
    I give it a high ratingnumber because I like it
    And it goes under the radar
    Drink now and in some years

    March 30, 2019 - Really elegant and typical right bank claret. A bit closed to start with, but over time it showed nice features of dark cassis fruit, tobacco, leather and a lingering, refreshing and elegant finish. Too bad this was the last bottle. 92 for now, but with potential for a higher score.

    February 26, 2019 - Full bodied, gritty tannins, black berries, cassis, red currants, floral aromas, hint of pencil, integrated oak and tannins. Long in the finish. Complex. Needs at least 5 more years.

    December 7, 2018 - deep red colour, decanted 4 hours and it was very smooth with great flavour

    November 17, 2018 - (Decanted for two hours, but was at its best after four hours)
    Deep red colour with a hint of a blue red rim.
    Incipient maturity on the nose showing blackberries, leather and with a warm and peppery note as well. Palate still with somewhat austere tannins that need more time to soften, primary fruit is starting to dry up and tertiary notes of leather is beginning to appear before the nice and warmer finish showing Corinth and morello stones.
    This is not your typical classic St Émilion, but a warmer and sweeter version, still evolving very nicely and should move into more tertiary dominated notes over the coming decade. (Best 2019-2034)
