    March 29, 2020 - This promises to be an amazing bottle, but is not quite ready yet. Hence the lower score.

    Dark blackberry and licorise on the nose. Very over-ripe and over-powering fruit on the palette.

    March 19, 2020 - MÖVENPICK: Tiefes Purpur mit Granatschimmer am Rand. Ein berauschendes Bouquet, viel Brombeere und Schattenmorelle, dahinter Veilchen, Earl Grey-Touch und Lakritze. Im eleganten Gaumen saftig und mit feinem Biss, mit viel Potenzial ausgestattet. Er wird mit Reife noch etwas an Tiefe zulegen, aber mit der Finesse beweist er jetzt schon seine grosse Extraklasse. Im langen Finale mit schwarzer Johannisbeere und Holunderpastillen. Mit Tendenz zur besseren Note – der Höhenflug hält an!

    March 10, 2020 - (GG Wine Tasting, 1 Glass) - one of the best performers from the 2016 tasting. Incredibly smooth, elegant, violets, velvety. Beautiful.

    March 7, 2020 - Langtons Chateaux of Bordeaux (Luna Park, Milsons Point): Slight green notes initially, blackcurrant and sweat...very slightly jubey notes, a little plums. In the mouth it's savoury, juicy, blackcurrant, again the acid line keeps things fresh, tannin and fruit hang off this acid line, long, slight warmth. Lovely.

    December 26, 2019 - Decanted for two hours. Blackberry, green tea, bbq sauce, hot stone, flower shop and dried cranberry. Exceptionally layered, with silky, elegant tannins, along with a full body. The finish glides along and this seriously rivals the stellar ‘15. A benchmark for this chateau. There’s a latent viscosity, and this is currently muted...so the cellar beckons. Drink 2026 -.
