    September 21, 2019 - level lowermost neck, good cork, colour has distinct brown character, shows its age, good nose, perhaps the best part now, classic cedar and lead pencil Pauillac, fine, with real character and poise, palate relatively lightweight, fruit has faded, dominated by acidity, still with good balance and very good accompaniment to Irish lamb rack, good but not great and that was probably always the case through its evolution

    November 3, 2018 - perfect level and cork, cellared since release, distinctly brown tinge but still lively colour, nose very good, shows age but still very clean, complex restrained fruit, certainly not past it on the nose, palate rather acidic, still with aged fine fruit but not much intensity or power, probably was never particularly powerful, fruit and tannin now in the background, still very enjoyable but over its peak and in gentle decline, drink up, although it won’t change that rapidly in the next years, however clearly on the down rather than the up

    January 17, 2016 - Nach einer Stunde in der Karaffe war er in der Nase zunächst noch sehr speckig und streng. Im Glas entwickelt er sich dann relativ gut und macht Spaß. Schöne Farbe ohne deutlichen Kern, kühles Aroma, starke Stachelbeernote, dezente Frucht, mittlerer Abgang alles in allem sehr sauber. Bald trinken!
