    December 19, 2018 - Schlank und elegant mit roten und schwarzen Beeren, Cassis, Pencil, Graphit und co. Scheint gerade in einem guten Trinkfenster zu stehen.
    BoW 18.5/20

    April 2, 2018 - Initially some fruit, mineral. Tannins with more body and complexity within 1 hour.

    October 8, 2014 - A fading nose of wet bandaids, earth, some smoke and a hint of clove. Over an hour more sweet black fruit came out and while this was impressive for the age, it is clearly on the downward slope.

    March 2, 2013 - Décanté, au restaurant. Bouteille magnifique avec high fill. Robe bordeaux foncé, bien brillante. Nez sur la mine de crayon, l'âtre froid, très pur, ensuite sur les fruits noirs. Bouche vive à l'attaque, bien structurée, élégante, avec de la réserve. Belle finale, moyennement longue.

    December 31, 2011 - Surprisingly young nose of raspberry, red cherry and earthy pencil lead kind of aroma, still sweetly pungent with alcohol after 5 hrs of decanting. Frankly a very welcoming nose and better than expected turnout considering the surmountable literature on how this house has under-performed in the last few decades. Medium body of red fruits, quite a decent finish, reminiscing of a young Barolo actually! Not a second growth quality but a very worthy mid tier grand cru. Very enjoyable!
