    March 16, 2019 - Robe bourgogne. Sur des arômes de cerise, beurre, boisé et cacao. Vin rond et facile d’approche. Bel équilibre. Décanté 1h.

    December 26, 2018 - Xmas party2 at Kheam Hock. Poured through Vinturi into decanter and then back into bottle. Drank 2 hours later.
    Appearance is clear, deep intensity, ruby colour. Legs.
    Nose is clean, pronounced intensity, with aromas of massively dominant vanilla oak, followed by black cherries, blackberries, cassis, black licorice, dark herbs, cinnamon. Developing.
    On the palate, dry, medium+ acidity, high alcohol (16%), very rounded plush high tannins that seem to be more from the oak, very full body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of black cherries, blackberries, cassis, toasty sweet spices, licorice, and the big dollop of vanilla oak. Long finish.
    Modern style written all over this. Vanilla BOMB. To give this credit though, there is a lot of dense black fruit in the background, but there really is so much ridiculous oak out in front. A wine designed to impress big style oak lovers.
    Garnacha old vines planted between 1920 and 1950 on red slate soils rich with iron. Aged in new oak for 2 years.

    March 10, 2018 - Univinum wine fair (@EDEKA Ueltzhöfer, Heilbronn, Germany): *** Short notes and impressions from a wine fair ***
    Glass: Schott Zwiesel red wine
    Pure Garnacha, over 100 years old. 20 month in barrel. Long, good tension, creamy, but also with an overlaying, fine vanilla flavor that destroys a bit the impression of the wine.

    March 8, 2018 - Superb nose. Almonds, nice oak. On the palate dark fruit. Blackberries, concentrated Grenache. Well balanced. Not too bold regarding the alcohol level. Great wine. Enjoy!

    December 31, 2017 - See previous note. Brought out my biggest gun to take on a rather hot pot of chilli. Does the job nicely, but this bottle has more of a dried fruit, caramel and Christmas spice character than I remember from my last encounter. Once dinner was finished, I was suddenly overcome with an urge to bring out the Stilton. Pretty much as close to Port as a dry table wine can get. Whether that’s good or bad I guess will primarily depend on your expectations and intended use.
