    September 17, 2022 - 10 hour decant. Dark ruby color. Black currant, blackberries, strawberries, leather, mushroom, earthy, graphite, smoke, tobacco and oak on the nose. Fruit dominant on the palate with good balanced acidity. Tannins are present, but integrated after the long decant. Long and nice finish. Amazing wine.

    August 17, 2022 - Outstanding, but super young and primary at this point. Hold.

    August 16, 2022 - Same bottle as collector. Had some second wines from 2016 but this must be my first “serious” 2016 Bdx. The extensively described change in Bdx style from 09/10 to 16 is very evident here. This is a mid bodied wine that is already showing very good balance. Not much baby fat not are big tannins peaking out. Some oak but already very drinkable in my eyes. Fine aromatics but can’t see the depth for a aignificantly higher score just yet. There is however certainly room to the upside, whether it ends up at 93 or goes significantly higher I cannot tell at this point in time. Hold 93+

    August 9, 2022 - Friend brought this to a dinner. Far too young. However, like all 2016, really well proportioned, classic sappy, oak needs to integrate though. This will be good after 2030. 94-95

    May 9, 2022 - Shows its big potential, but (no surprise!) not on peak today. Very precise and typical red and black fruits, black currant, cedar. It's not shut down, but there are also no signs of aging and the fruit stage has nearly past. Does not improve much on the 2nd day. Will be big maybe in another 5-10 years. Have to wait before opening another bottle.
