    July 31, 2020 - Drinking perfectly July 2020
    It smells like black currant (cassis). The body is full. The wine has polished texture. The wine finishes medium. The wine has low acidity.

    June 26, 2020 - Dark ruby in colour with strong aromas of sweet black fruit, old French oak & earth. On the palate full bodied flavours of black fruit/blackberry, old French oak, earth & subtle tar with medium to high acidity & high approachable tannins. Finish is long featuring dark fruit & French oak.
    This wine is balanced & challenging, and could definitely use several more years in the cellar.

    February 10, 2020 - Tannins fins. Finale longue. Un peu de tertiaire qui démontre une belle évolution. Pas pour la longue garde. Très agréable à boire.
