    March 9, 2019 - helle Farbe mit bräunlicher Tönung, sieht sehr reif aus. Unglaublich grüne Nase, als sei er aus grüner Paprika, nicht aus Weintrauben gemacht, ansonsten klar. Braucht ein paar Minuten Luft, um sich zu finden, ist dann ohne große Tiefe, aber schmackhaft und harmonisch, nichts Großes, aber lecker zu trinken. 85/100 – aus einer perfekt konditionierten Magnum.

    August 14, 2010 - From a top-cellar. Decanted for sediment and poured straight away. This wine appears dead. I open another wine for the night, leaving this one untouched. Next day, I'm curious as to what evolution the SHL has undergone..... Terrific smell of soft fruit emerging from the decanter. Pouring a sip leaves me speechless, what a great wine, after being declared dead the night before. Soft fruit, nice acidity, moderate finish. Wine is such a strange product ;-)
