    March 9, 2019 - This bottle was much better than the one about 18 months ago. There was plenty of dark fruit and fragrance, the tannins were well covered not angular and length was decent. Good+ right banker.

    February 12, 2019 - Apart from one dodgy bottle this has been very consistent and is still drinking well. Quite intense red berries, concentrated but not too much so, this is a neat, precise wine with good structure to offset its charm. Good stuff.

    May 2, 2018 - This is good - there is still a bounce to the brambly fruit and the solid backbone ensures that the balance is right, with just enough hints of creaminess to keep it interesting, with neither excessive alcohol nor any oak to spoil it. It’ll be interesting to compare it with other Fronsacs.

    November 11, 2017 - Excellent. Reached maturith. Red fruits flavours

    September 13, 2017 - I was unenthusiastic about the 2009 which I thought over-ripe and over-oaked. At first the deep colour and ripe but fresh nose here seem to indicate an improvement but the palate did not follow through revealing itself as undernourished with little fruit and angular tannins. Perhaps it is on the way downhill as early as its 11th year. How otherwise can it have won a Médaille d'Or at Paris in 2008?! Scarcely fair.
