Community Tasting Notes 22

    May 22, 2021 - Tasted blind, straight from the bottle, then decanted (is recommended).

    Nose: medium (+) intense, youthful aromas of dark fruits: Wild berries, blackberries, dark plums and initially some herbal spicy nuances of mint and eucalyptus, which embeds itself better and better. In addition, coffee, vanilla and cedar are now also discernible. A lot of development to be felt, the aromas are developing more and more.

    Mouth: medium in alcohol (13%!), medium (+) acidity which contributes extremely to the wine's femininity. Medium (+) in flavour intensity and medium in body. This wine is characterised by a terrific freshness, balance and drinking pleasure. In addition, a long lasting finish. A very feminine wine and one notices the Cab. Sauvignon influence (spice) is not so strong, which is why I had not guessed Bordeaux.

    Of course, still a lot of storage potential, will gain in complexity. 94 to 95 points.

    December 17, 2020 - A bit heavy on the fruit which seems a bit one dimensional but with a nice tannin balance. Nice finish. But lacks complexity.

    November 28, 2020 - This was outstanding. Beautiful purity of fruit. Medium body. Nose of cigar box, pine, plum. Incredibly fresh and pure. Very fine tannins. Medium length finish. Full nose and flavor, but moderate body and alcohol (13%) - perfect combo.

    November 7, 2019 - Tasted over two days. In the 2015 style: suave. Typical bouquet and profile, silky and velvety red fruits, lively acids, layered finish. The wine held form over both days, arguable showing marginally better on the second. It might improve after seven to ten years in the cellar. Drink by 2038-2040.

    October 1, 2019 - This starts off a bit too oaky with deep griotte cherry and smoky Provencal herbs. It's really the palate that tells the story of this wine, where the oak isn't nearly as prominent and the finish is full of beautifully pure, deep fruit, mineral, and wildflower. This could end up being very special.
