    February 25, 2022 - Deep red, slightly brown on egde, intense, black berries. On the palett, leather, spice, oak, well balanced. Nice medium + body. Delicious wine! I have five more left, and I belive this wine can age for some more years.

    December 26, 2021 - Classic B’x nose of cassis with some minty tones added. Lovely ripe appearance in color and smell alike. No noticeable tannins. Wow, this can really compete with more traditional Médoc wines, retaining its own character at the same time, which can be taken as a compliment for its maker. Really love this. High marks and will hold for a couple of more years.

    July 27, 2018 - Dark red colour with a touch of brown on edges. Liquorice, tar, green pepper and a bit of spice flavours. Enjoyable but probably towards the end of the drinking window.

    February 17, 2017 - Deep red colour. Strawberry and toasty oak on the nose with a touch of alcohol. Sweet musk, mushroom, menthol, forest floor and a touch of funk on the palette with a bit of aniseed at the end. Opened over an hour and added a bit of savoury bite. Good acid and length. Probably needs another year or so to be drinking perfectly.
