    September 7, 2017 - Double decanted in the Am for sediment, then drunk over several hours that evening.

    On the nose, blood, bacon fat, roasted game, violets, iodine, and white pepper. Beautiful dark fruit, rare game, blood orange, and more savory pepper, iodine, and singed earth on the palate. Call it what you will, but it has a sense of poise and depth.. Power and grace. A beautiful, harmonious wine that performed well above my expectations. I felt we drank this at its absolute apogee. Everything came tighter to a whole much greater than the sum of its parts, all with a sense of effortlessness. Not the most impressive wine in an absolute sense, but one of the most pleasurable wines I have drink in quite a while. Terrific, and I cannot ask any more of this wine.

    July 4, 2017 - Over the hill. Thin and devoid of fruit and vibrant acidity, although some said it perked up after a few hours.

    July 3, 2017 - Opened by Otis. Not decanted. 3rd time I have had this wine. This wine is fading but was still enjoyable. More earthy than fruity and their was much less fruit showing than in the previous bottles. 88 points.

    June 20, 2017 - I wish I had more, this was an outstanding wine in this vintage. The amount of fruit left is amazing for a 18 years old wine. Really delicious. The previous bottle was slightly better thanks to a longer decanting, so dont be afraid to decant two hours, the wine is strong enough not to loose anything

    May 4, 2017 - Côte-Rotie & Hermitage 1999 - chez moi (Frederiksberg): Delicious and forward, modern leaning, but very nice and balanced, complete cr Juicy and ready. From PB.
