    July 22, 2017 - I really enjoyed this wine and would think it is at peak drinking now. It is starting to show bricking and has fine sediment even when filtered. The nose is pine forest and Christmas cake. Slight taste of stewed plum but not a lot of fruit. Overall a very smooth dry red with soft tannins and a medium finish.

    March 18, 2017 - The label has suffered more than most in my damp cellar, so the alcohol level is illegible. Decanted 1/2 hr. Lots of deposit in the glass even though I decanted only 2/3 of the bottle. Medium deep colour showing some sign of evolution at the rim. Rich ripe nose which develops faintly oxidative notes in the course of the meal. The mouth is less rich with good fuit, good acidity and no obvious oak; the finish is long enough, with confectionery notes and some unresolved tanins. In spite of these, I would be inclined to drink my remaining bottles within the next two years. This is my favourite Côtes de Castillon, and given that the year is not the most promising, this bottle can be rated a success.

    October 28, 2013 - Une petite déception : le fruit et le bois ne sont pas vraiment intégrés, et la chair n'est pas très pulpeuse (le jus est un peu maigre). Bref, bien moins bon que la dernière fois. Peut-être dans une phase ingrate, ou la bouteille se goûtait mal.

    September 5, 2013 - A private lunch (Restaurant Essigbrätlein **, Nuremberg, Germany.): Merlot and Cabernet Franc with a hint of Cabernet-Sauvignon. A real peasant of a wine. Old fashioned, farmyardy (but not bretty), strangely attractive.

    April 16, 2013 - Better then earlier tastings. Did not last overnight in the fridge after opening.
