    December 11, 2021 - Popped and poured, and drank over 3 hours. Excellent cork. Much better bottle than the previous one, and sadly my last. Fully mature Bordeaux and hitting above its weight. Underrated Château in my opinion.

    November 18, 2021 - Well made wine, but now past it’s prime. Better 5 years ago.

    August 13, 2021 - My expectation was not high given the reviews but this wine impressed. Started off with generous expression on the nose - ripe red fruits, forest floor, hint of peppers and smoke. The palate was initially light and fresh, without much depth - so i thought the reviews we on the mark. But as the night progressed, subsequent glasses gained weight, the acidity that was prominent in the first glass gave way to deep dark fruits, chocolate, coffee and leather notes. Finish was decent, not particularly long. A superb bottle from an average vintage. Loved it!

    September 30, 2016 - Popped and poured, and drank over 2 nights. Initial nose and flavor of acetone, but this blew off over time. Fully mature Bordeaux.
