    September 8, 2019 - Stinky cow shit upon opening, blows off after 15min, beautiful cherry nose, kept getting better, the best 76 Ampeau I’ve had, powerful for a 43 yo old, excellent wine, drank with 78 Montrose, 88 Gros Frere Vougeot, 96 Francois Gaunoux Epenots & 98 Rayas

    June 28, 2019 - Great fill level & cork in excellent condition, served without decanting, best of the 76s we have opened, previous 2 were over the hill, so beware of bottle variations, this had a pretty nose of red fruits, finesse on the palate with still some acidity, this is a lovely Burg but the 96 drank alongside was a notch better

    May 20, 2019 - Ex-domaine, light red, good mature nose of soil and light cherries, in the mouth still some life left but best to drink up, drank with the 96 which I preferred

    March 17, 2019 - While fine on opening, this took several hours to open up. Given age, I was reluctant to decant. Translucent brick red. At 3 hours, cherry and raspberry fruit with dried leaves and musky spice on nose. Medium weight, persistent bright fruit on palate with soft tannins and balancing acidity. Complexity of texture with light/bright expression over creamy/rich. Pleasurable alone and with petrale sole over pea/spring onion risotto. This wine is at a nice plateau.

    February 7, 2019 - Clear ruby and garnet notes. Quite a musty nose that gets better with air. With time, the nose develops and becomes floral. The wine is in a good place and I believe it will last longer, as it doesn't seem tired.
