    January 1, 2021 - Leuchtendes rubinrot mit granatroten Reflexen am Rand. Saubere Aromen von Cassis, schwarzer Kirschenkonfitüre, grüner Paprika, Zedernholz, Vanille, Bittermandel sowie zarte erste Reifenoten von Rauch, Tabak und Leder mit einem leicht animalischen Unterton. Am Gaumen straff mit ausgewogenem Körper, einer markanten Säure, deutlich spürbarem Tannin und einem langen Abgang. Dank dieser starken Struktur wird sich der Wein in den kommenden Jahren weiterreifen und dabei noch intensivere Reifearomen entwickeln.

    Mit seiner heftigen Struktur schreit der Wein nach einem geeigneten Essensbegleiter. Gebratenes rotes Fleisch wie zum Beispiel Rinds Entrecôte oder Château Briand empfehlen sich hier. Der Wein ergänzt sich aber auch eine Auswahl von mittelreifen Halbhart- und Hartkäsen sowie Blauschimmelkäse bestens. Für den optimalen Genuss empfehle ich den Wein einige Stunden vor dem Ausschenken zu dekantieren und bei Raumtemperatur, 18°C, in einem Bordeaux Rotweinglas zu servieren. Dadurch kommt das gesamte Aromen Spektrum zum Tragen.

    December 11, 2020 - Toller Bordeaux; dunkelrot fast violett. Tolle Nase: schwarze Johannisbeere, Pflaume. Toller Trinkfluss mit noch leichter Säure.

    November 21, 2020 - Très bien malgré la faiblesse du millésime. Classe, finesse et équilibre sont au rendez-vous. Aurait mérité 2-3 points de plus avec un milieu de bouche plus appuyé et davantage de longueur. Sera certainement meilleur dans 2-3 ans et pourra tenir la route encore 5-7 ans selon moi sans problème, mais ne vous privez pas d’ouvrir une bouteille dès maintenant si vous en avez plusieurs.
