    August 21, 2021 - Did not decant and it took about 30 minutes to open up. Typical Claret. Dark fruit, smooth tannins, medium long finish. The nose was a little green/ bell pepper. That faded after an hour.

    August 2, 2021 - This seemed to be fabulous the first 10 minutes after opening, then it just went south... Was easy-drinking for 5 hours, but rather flat, lacking magic and oomph. 13.5% ABV.

    July 8, 2021 - Really nice, very classic nose with a bit of forest floor and a nicely perfumed fruit. Tannins pretty mouth-coating, rather simple and one-dimensional palate with decent balance. A nice, fine and elegant Bordeaux that will likely benefit from 3-5 more years in the cellar.

    June 12, 2021 - I was hesitated to open this wine so young. But as I have a few bottles of it, it wouldn't hurt to waste one in worse case. Decanted for 3 hours and drank over the next hour. Colour was beautiful bright but deep dark ruby with no faded rims (still young I guess). Explosive nose of dark fruits, tobacco and moist earth. Tannin was crisp but no rough edge. Spicy and long finish. Strong and concentrate but with a touch of elegance. I'm glad I can open one each year over the next 5 years.
