    November 6, 2019 - The modern modern style showing in some mocha notes, sweet cassis, but there is balancing acid and tannin to give structure. B+/B

    October 20, 2019 - Ripe, cedary, a balsamic streak, savoury love balance of fruit and bite.

    September 18, 2019 - Popped and drank over 90 minutes. This wine, like many 2001s, is in fine shape beyond its advertised drinking window. Won’t improve though.

    September 6, 2019 - 2nd time having this vintage over the span of 2 months and confirm that it is in its prime drinking window. PnP. Lovely nose only needed 30 mins to open up. Drink up

    July 17, 2019 - Just a delightful bottle of Bordeaux. Allow it to open up in the glass. Nice complexity, cherries, dark fruits, with leather and earth. A terrific wine in a bargain year.
