    June 9, 2019 - Dekantert 1 t. Brunlig kant på farge. Virker moden. Mørke kirsebær og blomster. Bløt munnfølelse og lett tørrende. Litt kort. Tynn.

    February 11, 2018 - Decent if rather muted and darkly shaded Gamay fruit. Thinnish, with biting alcohol and ample acidity and tannins. I can't see this ever really coming together, for my palate. Way overpriced if this bottle is representative. 13% abv

    November 24, 2016 - Caught my crew completely off guard...Sat for 2hrs open, with a fried turkey...this was after 3 other premier or Grand Cru burgundies were cracked open...bright mid palate, smooth finish...great call and eye opening for hopefully new bojo fans...

    March 1, 2016 - Decanted for 1 h on d1. Still fairly closed and disjointed with acid and earth sticking out. After 2.5h, bright unripe plum and cranberries emerged to complement the structure. Giving some pleasure but not great. D2 was better w greater harmony. Unripe plums, raspberries, pomegranate with earth, herbs, minerals and wet brown leaves. Nice finish. Still feels young or perhaps shutting down? Very good bottle but not great. Check on the last one in about another 3-5 yrs.

    February 14, 2016 - Quite a lovely wine, with notes of cherry, earth, and dark fruit on nose palate. Finish is a little thin, which may improve with age. Otherwise, nice balance between acid and tannin, and went very well with food. Can drink now or hold 3-5 years.
