    June 26, 2020 - Excellent. Youthful, drinking great. Herbs and angular fruit. Great complexity. Love it. Drinking well now or hold.

    March 20, 2020 - Still young, fresh, dense and developing a very typical CF bouquet. Some time left, no problem. Very nice wine with duck and beef meats
    I loved it

    April 9, 2019 - To me it seemed that this is more harsh and with higher acidity than FdP version. Overall, still a very beautiful wine, still on the young side. On the finish the same lemon juice as in FdP supplemented by sandpaper feeling.

    May 27, 2018 - Still seems youthful. Rich red and black fruit. No signs of bricking. Improved with a couple of hours of air.

    September 15, 2017 - Beautiful deep, even ruby with a saturation that so many of the '05s have had to set them apart visually. Strong green tones and olive. Medium weight with the glycerine and ripeness of the year. Dark cherry fruit, excellent acidity and real stoniness. After about 2 hours, this began to dry out. At least very good at this point, but is it starting to slide?
