    March 27, 2019 - Nose of black berry, dewy forest floor, licorice, and black cherry, more of the same on the palate, medium body, mouth coating rather than mouth filling, soft and supple, tasty, at it's best so drink up and enjoy your cellar efforts, has a long finish and pleasant aftertaste, holding up very well given the 2001 vintage.

    August 18, 2018 - Drinking beautifully. Excellent example of an aged,
    premier cru, right bank. Dark in color, dense, with an excellent fruit profile,yet starting to show its age. Highly recommended if you are a fan of the appellation.

    February 25, 2018 - Plum coloration in the glass, nose of black cherry, black berry, dewy forest floor, with hints of barnyard, more of the same on the palate, medium body, mouth coating rather than mouth filling, soft and supple, tasty, touch simple, everything is there but the whole is not greater than the sum of its parts, has a long finish and pleasant aftertaste.
