    February 16, 2020 - Had it at Bin 54 Feb 15 - absolutely delicious. BlackBerry, cherry, with slight earth and pepper. Wonderfully smooth and still held up well to both wakkoqu steak as well as the fish dish we had. Very versatile.

    February 8, 2020 - Consistently shut down hard across several bottles at a group dinner unfortunately. Deep, concentrated, and structured with lots of potential. I can see why this received so much hype early on. Will wait another five years before opening one again.

    January 21, 2020 - This is just incredible! So precise, full of structure. today 95+. But wait for the years ahead, this will be perfect. Its a CdP+++ never had one like this before. Be carefull by opening in the next 3-4 years, its hedonistic time will be over soon and enters in a kind of more closed period. Give it time and decand for sure!
