    January 9, 2019 - Good with our roast, herbal chicken but not quite as shown on its own. This was an old bottle but I am not sure which purchase. Needs a little more bottle age.

    December 29, 2018 - Red fruit, blackberry, cedar and oak. Better with the roast, herbal chicken, which showed off a beautiful perfume. A good wine but less finish and not as complex as some bottles we hsve had. Probably better with a little bottle age.

    Still a good buy for $22.39 / bottle with free shipping (new batch 750 ml). Drink now or hold.

    December 20, 2018 - By the glass. Another of these new wave Fronsac wines that aspire to dethrone the sacred cows, this time based on wood, fruit and concentration, that is, through a modern style. Abundance that does not have a glimpse of elegance or evolution. It is not for me but I think I understand what they are trying to make.

    Por copas. Otro de esos Fronsac de nueva ola que aspiran a destronar a las vacas sagradas a base de madera, fruta y concentración, es decir, mediante un estilo moderno. Abundancia que no tienen ni un atisbo de elegancia o de evolución. No es para mi pero creo entender qué pretenden.

    August 16, 2018 - Opened a bit tight, but after an hour decant was good to go.
    Earth, dried fruit, spice, anise. Good length on the finish.
    Paired well with chicken legs. One of the better LVC's I've had - surprising given the vintage.
