    October 27, 2021 - Tasted over 2 hrs
    -med dark red mild bricking
    -expressive slightly burnt sickly sweet red fruit mild reduction
    -barely med acidity, med- weight faded dark red fruit faintly medicinal, med- tannins slightly astringent and some faint oak
    -not very harmonious and rather low acidity for the vintage, probably was better a couple years ago

    December 22, 2020 - This shows more density and concentration than the Mont Luisants of the same vintage but is by no means a powerful wine. More dilute than a recent (spectacular) bottle of the 10, but still in adolescence, elegant and easy to drink but not showing a huge amount of development. This is certainly ready to drink but will change and I think improve over a few years. *** 1/2

    October 16, 2020 - This bottle was fantastic right out of the gate. Light hazy ruby color with a bit of sediment. Cork in perfect shape. Lovely perfume of mixed berry pie and floral elements and only a slight hint of the smoky wood that used to be more prominent in the bouquet. The palate has a gentle entry and is a bit soft on acidity for my taste, but I am enjoying the earth and mushroom notes and a little bit of that indescribable Burgundy magic that I had hoped to get. I refuse to throw food at it for fear of overwhelming the subtle beauty I'm tasting, but maybe seabass or white-sauced pasta would work well. After 2 hours it's holding up ok, but I'll have to report back when this bottle is eventually kaput.
    Down to the final pours 6+ hours later and it’s held together very well, though I still don’t have confidence in it’s long term future.
    But it’s nice to get a good one.
    5+12+17+7= 91

    June 28, 2020 - Pretty consistent with what I tasted four years ago. Rusty garnet color, cork in good shape (always a concern with MI), no sediment. Enjoyable right from the pop with a light herbal, tobacco, creosote, and cherry bouquet. Palate still has good flavor but it’s lacking persistence and the longer it’s open, the more it starts to fade. I consumed this over 8 hours or so, but I think it shined the brightest early on. Quite good and enjoyable, and satisfies my lighter Burgundy itch, but it isn’t very special.
    5+11+16++7= 89
