    October 8, 2021 - Nez puissant. Arômes de sous bois dominants le fruit (noir). Palais tendu par une acidité notable, jus épais, tanins tapissant la bouche. Le palais est plus homogène sur complexe. L’engin est satisfaisant sans être intellectuel.

    February 10, 2020 - Lively fruit on the nose. Blackcurrant, cassis, blackcurrant leaf, blackberry, interesting fig component. On the palate, completely closed at the moment. Me Hardly giving anything away at all. All the components seem to be there though with silky tannins, and bright medium acidity. I think there is a gem in here although difficult to tell at the moment. If I only had a few bottles, I would hold off opening any for ideally 10 years to be honest - certainly 5.

    September 21, 2019 - If you like, and coax the glass just a but you can find cigar box, tobacco, truffle, smoke and blackberries. The wine is medium/full bodied with round tannins and a crispy bite of cassis in the almost creamy finish. Give the wine 7-10 years in the cellar for the Pauillac firmness to subside and ennjoy it over the following 2 decades or more. The wine was made from a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot.

    March 8, 2019 - Lots of material here; very oaky but not overdone - full of ripe blackberry and cassis. Explosively fruity palate. It's nice to see Pauillac on this level performing this well - walking the line between supple and stern with Pauillac character. 92-93.

    February 25, 2019 - UCGB tasting Bordeaux 2016 (Beurs van Berlage, Amsterdam.): Beautifully ripe dark berries and toast. Juicy acidity and tannin. Modern made and tempting wine.
