    June 28, 2022 - Blue/black fruits, very dry, herbal, earthy, so pleasant on the nose. On the palate, really balanced, there is a certain creaminess and smoothness. Savory and high acidity. Nice wine.

    May 26, 2022 - Out of 375ml
    1 hour open
    Nose:
    Heavy floral notes with blue/black fruit notes nicely evolving
    Palate :
    Smooth , rich but with a mineral element that keeps it in Bordeaux rather than new world . Good tannic backbone that takes it to a long finish .
    Bought this 375 to checkin rather than open a 750.
    Would buy again.

    May 4, 2022 - Not particularly exciting out the bottle, but opened up at the end. Recommend a good 2 hours of decanting if you can't wait a few yesrs

    April 14, 2022 - Decanted and enjoyed over 1-2h. From 375 ml. This does not seem to have evolved further from my previous notes last year, smooth and delicious. My last bottle from a case of 12, purchased en primeur and delivered 3 years ago. It has been fun sampling these waiting for the more serious 750ml bottles of the '16 bdx vintage to mature in the cellar...
