    May 5, 2019 - 2001 – 92. A real testament to the winemaker’s skill. See previous verticals. It’s now 18 years old and you can still taste that distinct fresh fruit on the palate. Just starting to get a little lighter now.
    2002 – 90. That sharp spritz that we previously got on the front of the tongue has now finally gone.
    2003 – 89. Odd one out of the evening. More ‘meaty’ and savoury. Went fine with food. We had previously found the 2003 to be much smoother.
    2004 – 92. Yes, back to that medicinal cherry lozenges punch
    2005 – 93. Drinking very well now. Hint of spiciness.
    2007 – 92. A deeper, heavier year. You can still find some 2007’s at the larger retailers and it’s ready. Had the strongest bouquet of the lot
    2007 Magnum – 93. We had fun here, putting a magnum and a standard bottle of the same year up against each other. Was there a difference? Yes. Would you know if you did not have them side by side? Unlikely. This was the star of the night. Ripe fruit. Think warm sunshine.
    2008 – 91. Youngest one here and it shows immediately just looking at the rims comparing it with the others. It was the ‘reliable friend’ – easy drinking, plenty of fruit (evokes Christmas sweet spices) and went well with the cheese course
    A Billecart Salmon 1999 to start. All reds out of the Eurocave the night before, opened in the morning. Smoked duck with asparagus and a walnut dressing to start, beef filet with a shallot and port sauce, potatoes cooked with garlic and thyme, cheeses, rose possett with rhubarb.

    March 24, 2019 - Herlig vin, drikker fint, men den ligger best i kjelleren enda noen år. Flott balanse, tydelig Musar smak med noen søtlige toner og passe syre til lammeskank.

    February 22, 2019 - True poetry. Complexity immediately detected - fresh/dried fruit, sweet spices, chocolate. bacon, Earl Grey tea. Youthful, energetic, linear, rich and perfectly balanced. Easily 20 more years of life left in this. Drink now or let the oak integrate more. Tasted blind, guessed Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso 2010.
