    May 15, 2021 - Still a great showing, alive, red fruit, leather, oak fully integrated, powerful still, but elegant, tannins mostly resolved, high acidity, good!

  • Sebastian Lunde Likes this wine: 84 points

    December 3, 2020 - Denne hadde klassisk vest Bordeaux duft med mørke bær lær og hint av lær. Den er nok over peak, men vinen var fortsatt veldig god. Manglet litt frukt.

    September 11, 2020 - Dark berries, hint of leather. Still good after 21 years.

    October 18, 2019 - (Decanted for one hour)
    Deep red colour with a blueish rim. Maturing nose showing some leather, forest floor and lots of primary fruit and minerality. Nice glass dev with violets in a very pleasant way. Need time to open up in the glass, still showing austere tannins and lots of fresh primary fruit with violets on the palate and with a sweetness on the balanced finish. This should keep evolving well for many years to come.

    August 17, 2019 - Very oaky and assertive; a little bit too much toast here. Brash black fruit. Not much sophistication, but conversely one can't accuse this of being an anemic 1999.
