    January 3, 2021 - Nice surprise ! Still very much on primary notes. Needs at least 1 hr of air before drinking. Medium bodied.

    December 21, 2019 - What a wonderful wine! With one hour of air there is a nicely balanced claret with nice fruit and secondary/tertiary aromas. It´s just a bit light and thin. Some green aromas fade away after 6 hours of air, but then the secondary aromas also have disappeared.
    Knowing the bad vintage, its a surprisingly good wine for little money.

    October 24, 2018 - Final bottle from a case purchased in 2002 and it has served me well. Not to mention the fact that I paid € 20.41 a bottle back in the day... Fully mature, fresh and slender, lovely notes of gravel and earth, the fruit is now more in the red cherry and red currant register, slightly grippy finish, light but with good length. It has run its course.

    September 28, 2017 - Pemultimate (pristine) bottle from a case purchased in 2002. Firmer and fuller than the bottle tasted in August 2016, with good fruit and spice, a note of lead pencil, freshness and balance, a mineral core and firm but ripe tannins, good flavours and length with a hint of liquorice. A vibrant and energetic 1999, holding up well - better in fact than many others.

    November 1, 2016 - Bouchon non entamé.
    Robe : noire avec à peine une trace d'évolution. De belles larmes s'écoulent le long de la paroi du verre
    Nez : sur l'humus, le tabac
    En bouche : les tanins sont fondus, cela emplit bien la bouche, on a une belle longueur en bouche
    Beau vin à maturité
