    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.

    December 24, 2019 - Opened but not decanted one hour before serving. Could have used a bit more air, but it opened up in the glass with a few good swirls.
