    August 21, 2020 - A little tired but overall a broad character with attractive soil, aged fruit, and cedar tones.

    June 29, 2020 - Fourcaud-Laussac neg. Short brim, dark with some red; deep and complex nose, actually still some black currants, pencil shaves and mint; well balanced and youthful, medium body, very long, some tannin still.

    June 1, 2019 - Cheval Blanc Vertical ‘Chez Elke’ (Hotel Hohenzollern, Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler): Calvet bottling. Forest floor, orange soda, cherry, I was going back and forth if this was a clean bottle or not. The other tasters agreed it was clean, hence I rated it. For me it just fell short of the other wines we had

    June 1, 2019 - Very unsure with this bottle. Very interesting nose with citrus notes ranging from blood orange over Fanta/Orangina, to candid orange. Something seemed a bit off but could not put my finger on it.

    September 8, 2018 - Another great showing for this stellar wine. The purity of fruit stands out here. There is still freshness, silky textures and layers of sweet, ripe cherries that are complicated by the wet earth, floral and tobacco nuances. If you find a well-stored example, this is worth taking a chance on.
