    October 23, 2021 - One half of a bottle courtesy of Corivan. As I have written in the past, a little lighter than most, but just is delicious.

    August 10, 2021 - Not to the usual standard of Vieux Donjon. A little insipid really.

    January 29, 2021 - Some bottles of wine you wish were bottomless. This one was for me. Drank over two nights with Peruvian spiced roasted chicken and on it's own. At different times the nose showed dried herbs, licorice, sweet cherries, espresso and barnyard. Palate was silky and mouth filling and followed the nose nicely. Everything was in its right place with a balanced medium + finish. Superb, and sadly our last bottle of this.

    December 12, 2020 - 2 1/2 hour decant. Medium garnet-brick red in colour. Nose of smoky dark red berry fruit with some kirsch and garrigue. On the palate, there are some raspberries with semi-ripe plums and a touch of black peppers with currants. Medium bodied with a medium semi-chewy finish. Can develop further with some more cellaring.
