Community Tasting Notes 3

    June 23, 2021 - For the sake of honesty, I put my exact notes, written before the commercial releases but I do not put any comments on the wines whose price has exploded monstrously for no valid reason. Personally, I continue to buy much cheaper 2019s or much better 2016s.

    May 24, 2021 - 98-100 vvPunkte (81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, 8% Merlot, 13.68% Alkohol, 80% neue Barriques) Betörende Nase, tiefgründig und super komplex, ich rieche dunkle Frucht, Cassis, Brombeere, dann Zedern, getrocknete Kräuter, Veilchen, Süssholz, ein Gedicht. Im Gaumen druckvoll, gradlinig, sehr straff, ungemein konzentriert, aber hochelegant, baut immer mehr aus, füllt den Gaumen, die Frucht ist ungemein knackig, auf den Punkt gereift, die Tannine sind von höchster Güte, machen sich erst im hinteren Gaumen bemerkbar, deuten an, dass dieser Wein enorme Reserve hat und doch möchte man ihn jetzt schon schlucken. Ewig langer Abgang. Hier sitzt alles an seinem Platz, ein Las Cases, wie aus dem Stein gemeisselt. Grosses Kino und sicherlich einer der besten Weine des Jahres. 2026-2055+ (Mai 2021) vvWine.ch

    May 20, 2021 - Dark garnet in color, the wine pops with aromas of tobacco leaf, cigar box, cedar, herbs, black currants, coffee and spice. Refined, fresh, polished and firm, the fruit is vibrant, long and intense. The tannins are ripe almost creamy in texture. The finish is long, regal and compelling, leaving you with layer, of black currants and cassis. Give this at least 12-15 years before popping a cork and enjoy it for the next 3 decades after that. The wine is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc, 13.68% ABV, 3.80 pH. The harvest took place from September 12 - September 27, making this the earliest vintage since 1989. 96-98
