    August 17, 2020 - oFirst of 5 bottles purchased at auction.
    Cork in bad condition with some seepage and relatively low fill.
    Light golden hue. The wine is listed at 15 % alcohol which is difficult to believe.
    Initially served slightly cold with no decanting and allowed to warm up.
    Early on intense lemon/lime zest notes, savory aromas with good intensity and underlying acidity. This wine manages to balance high alcohol, high acidity and some phenolics.
    Allowed to warm up, get some air and time this wine develops substantial complexity and a long finish with only slight astringency.
    Still very enjoyable and not about to fall apart...

    September 26, 2010 - Beautiful and aromatic bouquet. On the palate apricots, oranges and minerals and more.. Very soft and tasty. Beautiful soft bitterness in the long finish. Great wine! Ready now, but no hurry.

    September 25, 2010 - Dreamtasting #1 (Restaurant Le Défi, Sprang-Capelle): Beautiful concentration, very unctuous but not cloying mouthfeel. Fruit is still fresh and, of course, very ripe and juicy. Interesting vegetal aromas of fresh garden herbs, fennel and steamed vegetables (carrots, peas, string beans). Also some earthy, sweaty, outdoorsy impressions. Great, great wine in its prime drinking window, but with lots of future. 18,5/20
