    May 21, 2015 - Drinks younger than its age and shows a little more the cab. Still nicely structured and nice balance.

    June 23, 2014 - Mas de Daumas Gassac Vertical (Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam / Bridges (*)): Well integrated tannins. The fruit is almost gone in this bottle. Tolerable.

    May 25, 2014 - Kleur: Fluwelig oranjerood. Aroma / bouquet: Prachtig subtiel maar rijp bouquet. Belegen wijn met een restje gedroogd fruit. Gedroogde dadels en gedroogde pruimen. Beetje vanille, marsepein, ontbijtkoek. Smaak / Afdronk: Een top-atleet op hoge leeftijd. Nog steeds vitaal en krachtig, ook boterzacht en rond. Zachte zuurgraad, boterzachte tannines. Ongelofelijk lange afdronk. Algemeen / potentieel: Blind geserveerd zou ik deze wijn 'herkennen' als een rijpe top-Bordeaux met een wat tegenvallende neus. Wat een mooi glas. Landwijn met een aristrocratisch karakter. 50 + Kleur: 5 + Aroma / bouquet: 10 + Smaak / Afdronk: 17 + Algemeen / potentieel: 8 = 90/100

    Google Translate:

Taste / Finish: A top athlete in old age. Still vital and strong, but buttersoft and round. Soft acidity, butter soft tannins. Incredibly long finish General / potential:. IServed blind I would recognize this wine as a ripe top-Bordeaux with a somewhat disappointing nose. What a nice glass. County wine with an aristocratic character. 50 + Color: 5 + Aroma / Bouquet: 10 + Taste / Finish: 17 + General / potential: 8 = 90/100
