    August 1, 2019 - Cork removed; wet about half way. Decanted for 30 minutes. A small amount poured initially showed dark red with some slight browning. Rather closed on the nose. After air this began to slowly unfurl with deep Pinot noir scents and flavors, pretty typical Vaucrains large sized NSG flavors and structure. The finish is long and the tannins are more integrated than the last bottle. This will last a long time but I don't know how much it will improve.

    July 30, 2019 - There's intense liqueur cherry at this wine's heart. It has a highly perfumed nose of violets, iron, root vegetables, smoked meats and compost. It is plush and silky, with outstanding depth of flavour and balance. It really fans out on the finish and leaves an earthy/minerally footprint.

    June 2, 2019 - Flat out great, why do the burg snobs despise nsg and further south.
    This has guts length and depth and its value.

    March 1, 2019 - A farewell to Tooch (Chicago, IL): Something not quite right here; not entirely sure what though. Seemed a bit heat-damaged, perhaps?

    June 17, 2018 - First of 6 purchased on release. Good cork, wet about a quarter up. Dark red. Intense nose of spicy fruit, sandalwood, and iron. Excellent body on the palate but with significant tannins to resolve. Decanted at this point. After 2 hours or so this still shows intense body and tannins at age 16! I can't tell if the fruit will outlast the tannins or not. Perhaps more integrated tomorrow. This shows some resemblance to the LSG 2002 on last tasting a few years ago when it also showed awkward fruit/tannin balance. Too young, the vintage, time will tell.
