    May 24, 2017 - Sulfurous nose on opening quick to dissipate. Earthy, bright, saline, rustic.

    March 20, 2016 - Really nice balance between the ripe black fruit, acidity, and fine tannin- bonus points it only clocks in at 13%. Its ready to go now, and while it may last a few years, it certainly doesn't need the rest or a decanting.

    February 19, 2016 - Dark purple with nose of wet earth and tobacco. Dark fruit, heavy tobacco on the palate with underlying tannic structure. Very nice,

    February 6, 2016 - Popped and poured. Dark and inky. Complex, fragrant spice/black fruit aroma. Rich, slightly tart, deep flavors of berry fruit, tobacco leaf, earth. Vanilla and cherry in the finish. Some oak, but it's definitely a feature rather than a flaw.

    A little high falutin' for a Cahors, not that there's anything wrong with that. This makes for better Bordeaux than most Bordeaux. Outstanding QPR.
