    July 4, 2022 - Absolutely gorgeous : red fruited, fliral, lively yet delicate on the palate. It was a real treat with grilled European quails tonight.

    July 3, 2022 - Echo other comments about this wine having a lovely bright red fruit nose etc. To me it is still coming together. The palate was a bit astringent; having again overnight it has definitely improved.

    Drink or hold… In my opinion it has a lot of room for further development. From my experience, if open now it will evolve nicely over a period of hours or overnight. Good wine.

    May 16, 2022 - Many great reviews of this wine already on CT. We enjoyed it with bbq sirloin and a really great match. Colour is fredh violet, and plenty of fruit (raspberry and plum) on the nose. Tannins are nicely integrated with ted fruit and vanilla flavours. A very enjoyable wine.

    May 3, 2022 - Opens up with a funky, slightly volatile nose. Just takes a bit of air and everything is clean and good. The off notes are replaced with flowers, cranberry, earth. Lovely primary fruit on the palate, sour cherries, cranberries. There’s an intense mark from the soil, sort of a big, embracing hug from a humongous rock. Still quite young with unresolved tannins, this is a keeper for now. Last time I came across of bottle of this was at Maison du Colombier in Beaune just a few weeks ago where Pierre Rovani was enjoying himself with a bottle at the table next to us.

    April 29, 2022 - Feminine and weightless, roses, violets, lilacs and peonies, coriander with pepper hints, raspberries and black cherries, limestone mineralite, every bottle of this I’ve had over the years has been open, accessible and fantastic but really feels to be coming together now. Lovely!
