    February 7, 2018 - Still tightly wound and ‘high pitched’. Lean and long. Hasn’t changed much in the last 3-4 years. This wine should develop in something quite special (given that it’s from Mercurey).

    August 30, 2016 - Still tightly wound with lots of acid. Needs more time. A bit rustic at the moment.

    January 14, 2015 - rich cherry and spice on front and mid palate. Long satisfying length for such a modest burgundy. This wine held together for 3 days. Should last many years.

    October 14, 2014 - Not going to rate this wine. Wasn't showing. Either a bit of a dumb phase right now or simply WAY tighter than i expected. Opened, decanted for 40 minutes, consumed over 3 hours. Tight and all tart fruit. Almost showing nothing. odd.

    May 3, 2014 - This wine has changed a lot since I drunk it over 12 months ago. Previousl bottles austere and lacked any depth or interest even though you could tell there was quality. Now it has started to blossom with fruit evident and nicely intergrated tannins. It didn't change over 3 nights - very unusual for a wine at this price point. Long life ahead.
