    August 5, 2021 - I was really impressed by this and will look forward to the next bottle. Ready, but no rush to drink; it’s maturing nicely. Started showing very well after an hour or so and I will decant the next bottle for c2 hours before drinking.

    September 27, 2018 - I have a case of this wine, it was stored at the Wine Society for 10 years. I've had a few bottles from the case and it doesn't disappoint.
    It's looking, smelling, and drinking well at the moment - at least it is to my taste.
    Even after 12 years it still has a deep garnet core leading to a red-pinkish rim. Legs suggest it will be rich and lush. On the nose rich deep autumnal fruits and dark berries. On the palate it's less impressive than on the nose but plenty of spice, rich red fruit and even a tarry note - perhaps suggesting the development of secondary characteristics. Long finish.
    By the time of the last glass, 4 hours after opening, this wine was still drinking beautifully, rich, warming, and spicy.
    I have a few bottles left that I will enjoy over the next 5 or so years, and will keep one to see what it's like after 20 years!

    December 17, 2017 - Supple and peppery. A touch of astringency on the finish

    December 8, 2014 - Weekly tasting group #146; Bordeaux: Right bank or Left bank? (@ RW): Beautiful bouquet with dark forest fruits, vanilla and beautiful oak. On the palate dark and red berry fruits, vanilla, some chocolate, good acidity and soft tannin. Full bodied, soft and friendly wine. Early maturity now and certainly a pleasure until 2018+ 90-91
