    April 10, 2022 - Animal, iron, wild berries, and perfume on the nose. Palate shows the vintage’s acid profile but it settles down with more air in the glass. Lovely sweetness, resolved oak and weightless.

    April 5, 2022 - From Mag after 6 hours double decanted. Came around but needed every hour to open up. Deep garnet color. Cherry and raspberry upfront with forest floor. Palate still showed 96 tannin and acidity though muted by 26 years. More fruit and earthiness with some spice and leather on back of palate. Long finish but a tad dry.

    May 9, 2019 - Perfume, herbs, and cherry fruit on the nose. For a bonnes mares, it was so delicate with some tart fruit but in a good way and minerals. Lots of stuffing. The Laurent oak was well integrated. It was so good. 93-94

    March 2, 2019 - Acker 2019/03 (Marea): Too acidic over the potentially good balance. Vintage tannin issue? 90

    February 18, 2019 - From magnum. I continue to love these wines. This was big and rich with loads of red fruits, raspberry, cherry, ash, smoke, black fruit, earth. From this format this was still very young and frankly could use more time. Plenty of structure and acid still in here to resolve. Very enjoyable now and some upside here from further development.
