Community Tasting Notes 65

    November 20, 2021 - Drank from a half bottle for two days.
    Cost me 16 EUR, full bottle price apparently around 24 EUR.

    Overall, not bad at all but not worth the price.

    Dark and powerful without being too massive or clumsy, void of any exaggeration. Masculine and self-confident; bone dry.

    Problem is, while it's undeniably serious and respectable, there is little there that is actually fun. As banal as it sounds, it could be more tasty.

    Difficult to rate - purists will surely rate it higher, for me it stops at 88+.

    August 21, 2021 - Super glas vin! Primært Merlot (62 pct.). Lækker, men fortsat lidt lukket næse med mørke kirsebær, brombær, sort peber, tobak, garrique, grøn peber og sorte oliven. I munden er vinen lækker cremet i texturen med en god frugt. Igen kirsebær og brombær samt sort peber og våde flintesten. En del tanniner, der sætter sig -nærmest Baroloagtigt - på gummerne, men alligevel flot balanceret og med en dejlig lang let sødlig eftersmag. Kan bestemt drikkes nu, men giv den i så fald én time på karaflen eller gem 3-5 år.

    August 1, 2021 - In half bottle, this is delicious now for a polished, fruit forward claret. A few more years will allow the real complexity to arrive, but right now there's good blueberry and blackcurrant fruit and a lovely line of cedar.
