    October 5, 2018 - Team Vitis Fall Tasting 88/76; 10/5/2018-10/7/2018 (Tord): Light flatulence tones that blows away. Afterwards, slim fruit on the nose and on the palate. Hints of caramel towards the end.

    May 25, 2015 - In remarkably good shape, as the last bottle. Very silky, slightly fading. Still very complete and enjoyable.

    January 27, 2013 - The most difficult cork in a while, just barely managed to get it out without it disintegrating completely into the bottle. The wine is just beautiful. Not the first time that an older Bordeaux from a not-so-great year and producer (in those days) somehow manages to be captivating and totally still alive. The colour is a bit brownish but still deep, sweet fruity nose, elegant palate with a nice length, some tannins still on the finish. All the old school Bordeaux virtues.
