    February 9, 2017 - Light to medium ruby in colour, with a nice but light nose of cherry, strawberry and forest floor. Deeper on the medium bodied palate, with a lovely texture and purity echoing cherries, earthy notes and brown sugar. Very classy, elegant wine, drinking well now but will last a few years yet too (A-).

    January 6, 2016 - What a difference a year or two makes! Medium garnet coloured, Wonderful nose of raspberry with an animal undertone, chrysanthemum. Boy, has this changed in the mouth. Gone is the acidity, leaving behind a well balanced medium to full mouthful, with medium to long taste. Totally differnt from the last time. This had so much 'weight' to it I would have pegged it as a good example of a new world pinot rather than coming from Burgundy. Does this mean ita worth sitting on my burgs for a longer time to allow this transformation or was this a bottling fluke/inconsistancy with the previously tasted bottle?

    December 4, 2015 - Lots of cherry fruit and some spices accompanied by soft tannins. Full bodied with a fairly long finish. I was surprised how good it was! I doubt it will improve further but no rush to finish it.

    January 25, 2015 - Mature, earthy notes, more acid than fruit. Not a a big wine by any standards but quite enjoyable.

    January 12, 2015 - Color: Rich ruby red.
    Aroma: Cherry, rhubarb & slight forest floor.
    Taste: Nicely tart cherry and crisp acidity with a medium/long finish.
    This wine has a lot going for it and will last much longer in the bottle; based on what I wrote 5 years ago in my Dec 2009 tasting notes the last time I opened a bottle the wine has matured very nicely and still has lots of life remaining. No need to be in any hurry if you are fortunate enough th have this in your cellar.
