    April 24, 2019 - Translucent ruby with lighter outer third. Prominent mint to go along with dark red fruit. Medium weight, very sappy. Naturally sweet ripe cherry, bitter chocolate, orange peel, outstanding integrated acidity, round tannins, and a late stemmy/peppery component. At the 2 hour mark, it began to clench up. All in all, still on the primary end of the spectrum. This is a superb Beaune with tremendous material and potential. I'd be tempted to wait another 5 years before trying the next bottle if I can find the will power to do so.

    April 6, 2019 - Opens over 2-3 hours ....balanced cherry fruit with mild acid. Beautiful and classic.

    June 17, 2018 - Black cherry, kola nut, violet, licorice, cinnamon, limestone. Medium with medium/plus acidity and a searing mineral streak on the finish. Drinkable -- enjoyable even --for the first two hours, then clamps down pretty hard. I wouldn't touch another one for 3+ years and more likely 5-7 to show its true potential (91-94). Drink 2021-2035+.

    May 28, 2017 - I would echo that this wine does feel a little overripe, though I would say I still enjoyed it very much
