    November 14, 2022 - Dense et belle matière.
    Assez corsé et ample, pas mal
    de fruits noirs et des épices.
    Les tannins sont charnus et la finale bien longue
    est aussi soutenue.

    October 9, 2022 - Deep red colour in the glass. Nose is spicy, I think this could be influenced by the high alcohol, a little cigar aroma. Big body, medium high acidity, tannins are pleasant and integrated. Flavours of ripe red fruit and tobacco.

    October 5, 2022 - Tried a 2018 & 2019 together. Definitely improves with age so far . Well balanced dark cherry/fruit on the allette - less fruity on the nose than pallette. Slight cocoa hints on the back of the mouth, slight baking soda hint on the end . Drinkable and enjoyable. Preferred the blind trust over the portfolio but might improve with age. Others with me concurred.
