    September 6, 2022 - I had a high expectation from this bottle as I have seen many people were recommending it. I can surely say nose is quite seductive, I agree with that burgundian CDP style. Palate somehow was surprising to me, somewhat austere, tannins seemed to be rustic. Blinded this, and many people were going to Pommard or even Italian due to tannin structure

    March 20, 2022 - 醒酒三个小时,标志性的芝麻香气,樱桃和覆盆子味,入口酸度高,单宁紧致,颗粒细腻,矿物感清晰,酒液咸,新鲜漂亮的红果味,还有芝麻香,给人感觉结构精致,余味细腻悠长,满口红果和花香。醒酒充分,状态完全打开,喝了这么多高酒精歌海娜已经有些麻木,当我喝到它,还能迅速找回那种精致细腻的感觉,从复杂度到结构感到平衡感无愧本场最佳。

    March 6, 2022 - My only bottle of 12 and I will be finding more. First time trying this wine and I was impressed. Dark and brooding color does not indicate how light and nuanced the wine is. Great notes of red and black berries, spices, red candy and some strawberry. This wine is just entering its drinking window and absolutely has upside. The wine has been described as a Burgundian CdP and I agree with that assessment. For a Grenache lover this is a really outstanding effort in a style I would prefer to see more of.

    December 2, 2021 - 黑莓,桑葚,香草、可可、烟熏培根。闻起来颇为浓重,但入口保持着清新的个性,良好的酸度和鲜活的果味中和了高酒精的沉重感。并非一味追求优雅,但在炫技香气的同时也顾及了均衡和内敛的特质。尽管还很年轻,但柔顺的单宁和多层次的香气已经开始展现出潜力,拥有值得期待的未来。
