    April 19, 2020 - I have two bottles left. I need to decant it for an hour or so. Impressive just the same.

    May 31, 2019 - Excellent! Seemingly built with aging in mind, this wine shows a firm, drying edge to its tannins, particularly on the finish. For the present, dusty cherry fruit and mocha-brown sugar notes provide a refreshing dose of charm.

    September 17, 2016 - Glossy colour. Rather indeterminate nose and jagged palate, to my taste.

    July 10, 2016 - Decanted for 2 hours. Young: sharply tannic, tight and with citrus almost grapefruit finish. Needs time - about 5 years!

  • Patrick_from_champagne Likes this wine: 87 points

    July 9, 2016 - That wine shows a light ruby color typical of Pinot noir.
    Nose not to expressive: littles notes of fruits, wood, spices...
    Palate on dark fruit, blackberry, spices...
    After an hour some flavor of raspberry are appearing.
    The wine is well done, balanced, not heavy
    To its just missing more complexity and a longer finish
