    July 11, 2019 - Bu en succ.
    Super bon, un peu boisé encore mais tout est là.
    De fruit et des épices avec de beau tanins bien
    enrobés et une finale bien longue et suave.
    Bon et pour encore des années.

    July 1, 2019 - We tasted this straight from the bottle, and our first impression was while a lovely nose, how much heat it offered on the palate. Big, bold, and fruity, but with such obvious heat still. Well, what time does however. Two hours later it had softened into a wonderful wine. The next day, there was still a large glass left in the bottle, and boy was it nice. Every now and then one learns the virtue of patience, and I imagine this wine will be an extremely nice wine to revisit in 5 years time. Not quite the balance of the Malartic LaGraviere of the same vintage, but definitely worth the experience. Tasted over mozzarella pizza with garlic mushrooms from Ginos. -Manila. 92+

  • DSR Does not like this wine:

    December 16, 2018 - Tasted blind. Deep purple with staining of tears. Med intensity, ripe/jammy black fruit (black cherry, blackberry), prune, fig, violet, new oak. Dry, med+ acid, med+ tannin, high alcohol. A touch hot and overextracted, med complexity/finish. Perhaps needs time and/or air, but on PnP tastes disjointed.

    November 4, 2018 - Very ripe and generous with lots of concentration. Big, powerful, tannic and slightly sweet on the palate. Good acidity and good balance overall. Fine length. 91-92+
