    October 2, 2019 - Still fantastic. See prior notes.

    December 6, 2018 - This bottle was showing signs of seepage so decided to open it. Ack, corked. That makes 3 out of 4 bottles. Cardboard, underripe banana, and mushrooms. What a disappointment.

    October 6, 2018 - Quite young and not particularly evolved, this bottle. Slightly pétillant, rich texture, significant sweetness (ripe pear). Works with a selection of cheeses. Would leave this alone for 3-5 more years.

    June 26, 2018 - Perhaps a bit more primary with less petrol than a bottle a couple years ago. Quite sweet, borderline flabby. It wouldn't hurt to give remaining bottles a couple/few more years before opening another.

    June 22, 2018 - Ok... this bottle also seems flawed, advanced and/or slightly corked. Not enough to be cardboardy, just a whiff and muted, bruised fruit.
