    August 28, 2020 - As good as any previous bottle- this needed 4 hours in the decanter before it opened up. Great balance with a persistent finish. Although this is fully mature and in its prime, this has another decade of life left. No rush

    June 25, 2020 - We struggled with the cork a bit, but the wine itself was pristine. I was a bit surprised by the drinking window, but must agree that there is still at least another good 10 years to that wine. Wonderful moment!

    June 20, 2020 - Pristine. Young. Unbelievable.

    June 10, 2020 - Third Zoom tasting – Blind Bordeaux (Mi Casa): Fully mature nose displaying the Cordier funk, sweet red and black fruit, a hint of crème de cassis, plum, lead pencil, ash, noticeable brett, cedar and earth. Fully mature palate displaying excellent concentration, secondary sweet red fruit, silky, good acidity and mineral, still noticeable slightly coarse tannins and a relatively short finish due to Brett. We all think that this is not a representative bottle.
