    November 29, 2013 - Un nez sur le tertiaire,Champignons et feuilles mortes, sous-bois etc...!
    En bouche, mince et dilué.
    En fin de course on dirait!

    November 27, 2013 - Plum, black fruit. Still bears good acidity.

    April 11, 2013 - A bit rustic and creamy in the bouquet. Some red fruits as well. On the palate the same experience, so in that aspect the wine is harmonious. Also high acidity as in red currants and soft tannin. This was my last bottle and that is just fine. Not really much exclusiveness in this bottle, but my 2010 score was too negative. 83 for today, which is below standards for this domain.

    (Chateau de la Rivière Fronsac) An exotic nose, with dark black, oaky fruits. Plump palate, with oak still evident, but lovely style. Moderate concentration. Nice grip. This is lovely, and I prefer it to the 2000. Needs three to four years.
